Resolution Season

It’s past mid-January in the new year and some of us are still trying to figure out where 2022 went! Others had their 2023 plans ready to go before the tree went up. Whether you’re “running late,” or you’ve sprinted ahead, there’s always time to take a look at your aspirations for the year and adjust.

Set yourself up for success! At VOA Thrift, there are a few goals we can easily help you achieve in 2023.

DIY Dog Bed

February is the month of love! Sharing affection this time of year doesn’t always have to refer to significant others… you can also show love to the four-legged friends in your life, too. That’s why this month, we’re sharing a how-to tutorial so you can make a bed for your furry friends using items you can find at VOA Thrift. They need love and snuggles too!

Spring Cleaning… Just in Time!

We have officially arrived in the season of Spring! While the weather isn’t sure what it wants to do yet, it’s a great time to stay inside and get started on your spring cleaning. Make room in your closet for the upcoming warm weather trends or clean out the holiday decorations that stayed in the garage this year!

Back to School Wardrobe

While it might feel like summer just started, it’s getting to be that time of year again… that’s right, it’s back-to-school season!

It’s a fun and exciting time for kids as they look forward to their first day of the new school year. But it can also be stressful and expensive for parents. That’s why shopping at VOA Thrift for kids’ clothing makes sense! You can snag amazing finds at great value for everyone in the family.

Check out the variety of children’s clothing in our stores below! You can find something for everyone (and even for your home), but here we’re highlighting our kid’s collection. They’ve likely outgrown last year’s wardrobe and will need some “new to them” outfits for school!

3-Step DIY Project

Summer is officially in full swing! It’s past time to break out the pool noodles and fire up the grill! In this month’s blog, we’re sharing a simple DIY project to help you welcome summertime. Our DIY chalkboard can be used to highlight your gathering’s menu items, pool rules, inspirational quotes, or even keep your grocery list for the week!

This project is also a great one to keep your little ones busy this summer. Whether they make the chalkboard themselves or you provide it to them as an “old school iPad” with fun chalk colors… it’s sure to be a hit.
