The News Times informed us that "Pick of the Litter" was voted Best Consignment/ Thrift Store in Lincoln County!

The December 1 Holiday Extravaganza at the annex was a great success, and dozens of shoppers happily took time to check out our open house, trekking up the ramp in drizzling rain to tour the new processing space and enjoy refreshments. 

Thank you for your wonderful support!
