A true bargain basement

Hollyhock Thrift Shop funds many library programs


Virginia Morris of Sandown said she comes to the shop once a month.

“Most of all, it’s the prices,” she said. “But they have such a great variety as well.”

The shop accepts clothing for people of all ages during library hours. Jewelry and accessories are accepted, too.

Linda Skidmore, a library Friend, said the thrift shop is the group’s biggest source of money — and it wouldn’t be possible without David.

“This was her dream,” Skidmore said. “She’s got an amazing passion for what she does.”

But even passion has its limits; David said she only plans to run the shop for three more years.

“Once I hit 90, it’s all up in the air,” she said with a smile.

The shop is open Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. All donations of clothing can be dropped off at the shop when it’s open or at the front desk of the library.
