Location image of event venue


We are privileged to be joined by Jason Smith from "Thrifting with the Boys" ( You've heard of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, right? Well this is Leftover Tuesday. Through the wonders of PowerPoint, Jason will take us through a thrift store, section by section. He will talk about the normal things you find in each section. Then let the group in on some secrets, items in each section that we might not have known were there and more importantly, we should buy for resale. Jason will also go over the Xmas CDs that he just purchased for resale and why he will get up to 20x more money than the store that sold it to him. Get a chance to talk with Jason directly.

We'll also enjoy food, beverage, and fun at our annual holiday mixer. This will be a potluck with details to follow. Spend time getting to know other members and have fun!

We will be supporting Toys for Tots once again so ask that all attendees bring an unwrapped gift. More to come.
