Live From “Second Glance” The Thrift Store Of The Open Door

Second Glance Statue post

Yesterday Charlene M Delany a Facebook friend posted the photo and caption above. After liking her post, I couldn’t stop thinking about the photo of the religious statues. This morning after meeting friends for coffee, I decided to stop by The Open Doors Thrift Store, Second Glance to see if the St. Joseph and St. Anthony statues were still on display, and find out if they were indeed for sale. After a quick scan of the glass and collectable area of the store, I was directed to their back room, where I immediately spotted them on a display shelf, exactly as shown in the photo on Facebook yesterday morning. As I approached the shelf I was thrilled to see they both were labeled with very reasonably priced sale tags! As I carefully lifted the heavy statues from the display, my heart was fluttering with joy, as I carried them to the cash register to purchase them!

After a quick wash and polish, they were added to our family altar!

Breaking News: Skinny Jeans Update From John McElhenny

Joey,
Aware of your not-so-secret crush on the Skinny Jean, Julie LaFontaine alertly pointed out this breaking news: the Second Glance Thrift Store on Pond Road is selling jeans for half price this week only.
That’s $3 for skinny jeans that’ll fit you perfectly hauling lobsters down the dock, riding Sister Felicia’s bike around the neighborhood, swirling the three ecru-colored Splenda packets into your coffee, or for any occasion.
More details are here

If you haven’t been to Second Glance you will be just as astounded as I was with the cheap cheap cheap stuff there and the money spent all goes toward feeding the hungry. 

Like if you have a rental apartment to furnish this would be my first stop, no brainer.
