The Main Street Thrift Store is now OPEN!

Yes, the Main Street Thrift Store is open for business! We are all set up at 131 South Main Street in Albion. Please come down and check us out – we have lots of high quality clothing, furniture, original artwork and much, much more. We also accept donations, in case you have anything that someone else could use.

Today, we celebrated the opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony, a welcome from Brooke Pontillo, President of the Orleans County Chamber of Commerce and a big thank you from the Executive Director, Edward Fancher.
