NONPROFIT THRIFT STORE “THE FABULOUS FIND” REOPENS IN NEW KITTERY LOCATION
Donations Needed to Fund Store’s Monthly Charitable Gifts to Seacoast Nonprofits
February 18, 2013 – Kittery, Maine – The Fabulous Find Thrift Shop has reopened for business in a new,
larger location at 139 State Road in Kittery. A February Donation Drive is in progress, and a Grand
Opening celebration is planned for Saturday, February 23 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
With a loyal following as a boutique-style thrift shop, The Fabulous Find had outgrown its old location in
just over two years, and purchased the new building with fifty percent more space in January.
“Taking ownership of this highly visible expanded space solidifies our commitment to making a difference
in the Seacoast for decades to come,” said Anne Hunter, store manager. “But we truly do not do it alone–
the daily donations of goods, work of store volunteers, and support of our patrons are all critical pieces of
the puzzle for our mission of community support for great causes.”
The Fabulous Find sells donated higher-quality clothing, home goods, furniture, music and books to raise
funds for a variety of 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations which apply for consideration. To date, nearly
$250,000 has been raised and donated.
“Our $4,000 gift from The Fabulous Find moves us closer to the creation of the African Burying Ground
Memorial Park in Portsmouth, and has brought substantial visibility to the project,” said Vernis Jackson,
chair of the organization’s committee. “We are lucky to have this community support and assistance.”
A number of local businesses have generously donated or discounted goods and services to make The
Fabulous Find’s move successful. They include: Salmon Falls Nursery and Landscaping of Berwick,
Fernald Construction of Cape Neddick, Eldredge Lumber of York, Absolute Power of Berwick, Dow Hill
Architects of Sanford, Exeter Decorating of Exeter, and Perry Plumbing and Heating of Portsmouth.
|Many Seacoast businesses, including Salmon Falls Nursery & Landscaping,
have helped to make The Fabulous Find’s relocation and expansion possible.
