Spring 2016 President’s Message

Spring 2016

Though the advent of our Spring merchandise began on March 1, Winter proved to be enduring. Even as pastel cottons and gardening equipment were brought out of our work room, our customers bought gloves and wool scarves, and came into the Turnover to escape the cold and wind. But, finally, we can open the doors to fresh air, and customers looking to stock up on merchandise for the Summer months.

It is challenging for our volunteers to anticipate what to display on any given day, just as it is difficult for our customers to anticipate exactly what we will have in the shop, and when. When a customer calls with an inquiry, the call is usually answered by a volunteer who is behind the front desk and is unable to walk around the floor to confirm that there are blue blazers or Victorian dining room chairs. Therefore, we have embraced the possibilities of social media, attempting to reach out to additional customers, and keep our listings current. Please check local sites and Facebook for updates on sales and information on merchandise.

The Turnover is proud to support the Wilton community. We contributed merchandise and volunteers and meals at the Ogden House Fashion Show in March. We are corporate partners with the Wilton Relay for Life on May 14th, raising money for cancer research and care. And in addition to our annual allocations to Visiting Nurse and Hospice and the Wilton PTA, we have contributed funds to several other Wilton charities as well.

All of this reminds us that while we enjoy the prospect of shopping at the Turnover, our mission has always been to serve our community. We take this quite seriously, and endeavor to build upon our previous year’s efforts. Without the cooperation of nearly 150 volunteers, and our customers, donors, and consignors, this would not be possible.

Thank you for visiting our website and hope you will visit us soon. We are grateful to all of you who are appreciative of the presence of our small shop in Wilton, and support our efforts.

President
