Impact Thrift Store

  There is really no better place to shop for furniture. I can be sitting at home, thinking, hmmmm…..I reallycould use to have another little shelf over there in the corner.  Next thing you know I’m entering Impact,either in Norristown on Markley Street, or in Hatboro near where I work (I haven’t visited the Montgomeryvillestore yet) and going into scan mode:   mmmmmmmmmmmm – check! mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm – nope! Every time I need an item I find it – if not on the first trip, then on the 3rd or 4th, because new stuff arrivesevery day. Nearly my entire living room, was furnished from Impact. You should see the beautiful cherry wood cabinet I got for the television set….for about $15.

 Right now I’m watching for a shelving unit about 4-5 feet wide and 4 feet high. I expect to pay about $10 and I will put it on top of one of the desks where I work, as a hutch. And I really could use a cardigan, but that’s a little harder to find. Might have to go to a regular store for that one.

Recently I needed a couple pair of warm pants because my office is so cold – found two pair just my size for about $3.50 each. Then I needed a couple of suit jackets so that I could look all corporate when I went to Washington DC for a conference. Check it out: a black suit coat that fit perfectly, a dark purple zip-up suit coat, and a floral one: all three for under $20, and a fancy black and red blouse to wear to a family reunion too.

I also like the fact that the money from there goes to help several charities in the area; I hate having yard sales (never make enough money off them to make it worth all the time they take) so I drop off a bag at Impact every six weeks or so also.  It’s a great place. They even have gift certificates!  🙂
