Lord & Taylor we're not, and Corporal Kennedy Street is a far cry from Fifth Avenue. The Worthy Pause is, however, unique among thrift shops. Almost anything (except clothing and furniture) can be found here: jewelry, antiques, collectibles, books, records, bric-a-brac, glassware, dinnerware, games, cameras, lamps, stationery, greeting cards, kitchenware and so much more. For the thingamajig that is part of the whatchamacallit that your grandparents had 75 years ago and that's no longer made -- try us. We might just have it.
The proceeds of sales of donated merchandise, as well as cash contributions, enable us to perform our animal welfare services. No salaries are paid, since everyone is a volunteer. We do not employ professional fund raisers.
The Worthy Pause is a great place to do your gift shopping, for we have a wide selection of fine quality merchandise--some new, some gently used, at very reasonable prices.
If requested, tax-deductible receipts, to the extent allowed by law, are given for saleable merchandise. A list of donated goods must accompany the donation if a receipt is requested.
Henry and Oliver, our resident cats, send their best to you all. They wanted to write a few lines for you but their penmanship, which is improving, has not quite been perfected. Meanwhile, they'd like to say that their favorite spot is in the show window, where they rearrange the displays as they see fit. Almost as much fun is the counter--especially when is is piled high with all sorts of stuff. And when things are just too hectic, a snooze in one of the display cases is just dandy.
