Needs in Anonos

As you may have read, we now have a new thrift store in Los Anonos. It provides work for Adriana, one of the ladies in our church, while the revenue helps pay the rent on the casita, the little house where the thrift store is located. It has been quite the hit! Adriana has had steady business since it opened. The store is kept stocked by teams. When they come down they can bring gently used clothes, shoes, and home goods to put in the store. Between teams I get bombarded with two types of questions whenever I go down to visit the strore: When will there be more items? and Do you have______? The answer to the first question is always the date when the next team is coming and the answer to the second question is we'll have to wait and see if the team brings the names item. In preparing teams for coming, here is a list of things that people frequently ask about.

  • Kid's shoes
  • Women's sandals and shoes
  • Men's, women's, and kid's tennis shoes
  • Pots and pans
  • Mugs or cups
  • Yarn
  • Curtains
  • Sheet sets
  • Women's exercise clothes (stretchy pants and capris)
  • Kid's clothes
Clothes that they LOVE include t-shirts, tank tops, ladies sleeveless shirts, and hooded sweatshirts or pullover hooded sweatshirts. Many of the people here actually tend to wear popular American brands.


Here are some of the ladies from the Portland Vineyard.
They brought down extra suitcases filled with clothes for the store.
Thank you for helping fill our store with not only things, but the light and love of God!!
