Jewish thrift store plans ‘Best Of’ sales event

The 1st Rate 2nd Hand Thrift Store, Southern Arizona’s only Jewish thrift store, will hold its “Best Of” event on Thursday, Nov. 29, 6-8 p.m. The event will feature select merchandise, snacks and wine, and music by Birks Works.

Held twice a year, the “Best Of” events are a chance “to showcase some of the best items that we set aside as they come in,” says R.J. Creson, the store’s general manager.

This month’s event will focus primarily on antique furniture and “top-notch” clothing, he says, but also will include art, old tools, high-end electronics, and top-of-the-line shoes, purses and other accessories. “You name it, the event really will have it,” says Creson.

The 1st rate 2nd Hand Thrift Store is located at 5851 E. Speedway Blvd. All proceeds benefit the store’s Jewish community partners. For more information, call 327-5252.
