I love revisiting familiar thrift shops and seeing what they are doing to keep customers engaged. I recently went back to the Hidden Treasures Thrift Shop in Abbotsford, which supports M2W2 (a prison visitation ministry). I love this shop for a bunch of reasons: it’s small, it’s really affordable, and it has great volunteers.

I hadn’t been here for a while so it was cool to see some of the new displays they’ve got and the way they’ve revamped the front area.

I always like a friendly welcome

The newly revamped front area has nice displays and more of their collectibles

The furniture area in the back is very nicely organized, clean, and creatively displayed

I always appreciate a nicely organized book area

I made a few small purchases. I needed some thank you cards and really loved the vintage feel of these packets.

I also needed a nice picture frame for a new water colour I received that week from my son.

i look for photo frames that aren’t scuffed and make sure the hanging hardware is sturdy

et, voila!

And I also scooped up these fantastic wooden clothes pins – this was worth the visit, right here.

only $1.50!

I’m super picky about clothes pins and this box was filled with really good, non-snagging, sturdy, CLEAN clothespins. Score!

How has your favourite thrift shop refreshed its look recently?

        Thanks.. I clicked on the link after messaging you. I’ll keep my box of thrifting items to take and give them when I stop in next week. Thanks for the heads up on that little place. Sandy 😊
