Enjoy Free Shopping! by Fabienne Dupont, volunteer

Connect our friends to yet another cost saving resource.

If you want FREE fashionable clothes for men, women, and children try Saint Vincent de Paul Thrift Store's "VOUCHER ROOM". You will find a large, clean room with big dressing rooms and friendly volunteers. You are allowed to take 3 outfits- meaning 3 tops, 3 bottoms and 1 pair of shoes per week (that means 12 new outfits a month!). You can take 4 outfits a week for children, and 6 outfits for infants. They have tons of baby clothes. Whomever the clothes are for must be physically present, so bring the kids you want to outfit. We visited with Shukurani and his family. Even Bahati, a fashionable teenager, was pleased and the younger children got to dig happily in a large box full of free stuffed animals. And to get all this you simply have to write your name on a little receipt, filled out by the clerk, and sign it. Hours and location: Monday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., 18th street and South 6th Avenue. Happy shopping!
