Thrift Shop & Guild Fashion Show 2013
The Roser Thrift Store is located across the street from Roser Community Church, 512 Pine Avenue in Anna Maria.
The store is closed to shoppers on Wednesdays, but is open 9 a.m. to Noon to accept donations of “nice clean clothes and other items.” The store does not accept furniture, TVs or microwaves.
The Guild Thrift Store is an all-volunteer operation which was managed by Margaret Art for 15 years from its inception to mid 2012. The current chairs are Mary Lechleidner and Eileen Micho. The store is staffed by the Roser Women's Guild. In addition to providing significant support to the church, proceeds allow the Guild to underwrite scholarships and community programs.
All of this comes from the sales of such items as 50-cent used caps, 10-cent used tableware, and three-dollar used shirts. Also, available in the store are small appliances, comforters, bed spreads, jewelry, magazines, books and much, much more.
