The Junior League of Summit Thrift Shop’s Coat Event will take place on Thursday, Oct. 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday, Oct. 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Parish Hall in Calvary Church, 31 Woodland Ave., Summit, and the Thrift Shop, 37 DeForest Ave., Summit. The annual event features deals on gently used adult and children’s winter coats and accessories.
“The Junior League of Summit is so grateful for the coat donations collected throughout the year. The money generated at the event will go back into the community to benefit the initiatives we are committed to as a league,” says league member and Thrift Shop chairwoman Stephanie Giblin.
“We have upwards of 830 coats for everyone in the family, featuring a wide selection from weather resistant to fashion forward wools and fabric styles. We are excited about this year’s selection including the winter boots, scarves, hats and gloves! New this year is our Lux For Less Corner. This area will feature 22 fur coats and a small selection of designer handbags, shoes and accessories…a must see,” said Thrift Shop manager Marie Avagliano.
All of the monies generated from those sales directly benefit the local community through the league’s philanthropic endeavors.
The Thrift Shop will remain open for its regular hours throughout the event, continuing to offer customers the opportunity to purchase discounted housewares and clothing and shoes for men, women and children.
