New To You

The St. Peter’s Thrift Stop is grandly reopening into a generous renovated space filled with finds of all kinds of quality goods, gently used, at a nice price. Valerie Rieger has taken over management from the just-retired Chris Miller who ran the shop for the past 20 or so years. Valerie, a parishioner at St. Peters for 21 years, brings her expertise in retail from her work at Nordstrom and TJ Maxx to the expanded shop calling it “retail with a purpose.” The non-profit shop’s “employees” are volunteers and proceeds from sales are shared among 14 local and international ministries that offer services to many causes including childhood education and Helping Hands that works with the homeless population. It is a sustainable spot to shop and to donate your no longer needed clean items of clothing and/or books, small household goods. Please no electronics, medical equipment, large furniture or mattresses. Credit cards are accepted. Staff and volunteers (more are welcome) are vaccinated and masks are required inside the shop. Open hours: Tuesday (with 20% off for seniors and military) to Friday, 10:00 AM-4:00 PM, Saturday, 12:00 PM-4:00 PM. 334 14th Street, 858-481-1945. E-Mail:
