Hospice Cottage Charity Shoppe is introducing a new concept this year for its highly anticipated collectible sale. Instead of a two-day blitz, the sale at the Tsawwassen thrift store will take place over the entire month of March with special features each week.
A fresh shopping experience will be offered each Monday as items will be grouped into unique displays at the beginning of each week and moved at the end of each week to allow for the following week’s feature.
The store layout will remain as it usually does with clothing, crafts, wool, housewares, pictures and more, but the exception each week will be coveted displays of unique and highly collectible items.
Offerings will include vintage instruments, record players, records, cameras, sports memorabilia, stamps, books, magazines, items with Asian influence, items with First Nations influence, one-of-a-kind handcrafts, linens, and pieces of china, crystal and silver sets.
Retro items such as telephones, Hollywood, Olympic and war memorabilia, in addition to vintage wooden toys and dolls, add a uniqueness to the sale.
Thanks to the generosity of the community over the past year, the store has been inspired to introduce the new concept to its annual collectible sale. It will give everyone more of a chance to participate in the collectible hunt this year, not just those willing to line up in the early hours of the two sale days.
The Hospice Cottage Charity Shoppe will commence Collectible Month on March 2 by offering furniture, wood, First Nations, Asian clocks, figurines, china sets, crystal and silver to start the sale. Subsequent weeks will take on different themes:
March 9 offers weird and unique collectibles, antique books, magazines, stamps and comic books.
March 16 sees toys, dolls, die cast cars, trains, games, Pokemon, collectible movies and more.
March 23 is the highly coveted musical instrument feature. Instruments, sheet music, record players, cameras and tripods and collectible records will be for sale.
March 30 is the sports memorabilia feature that coincides with the store’s spring sporting goods sale.
Funds raised through the Hospice Cottage Charity Shoppe support programs and care provided at the Delta Hospice Society’s Harold & Veronica Savage Centre for Supportive Care and Irene Thomas Hospice.
The Hospice Cottage Charity Shoppe is located at 1521–56th St. Store hours remain the same throughout Collectible Month: Monday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
