3 Resolutions for 2022

January is a time for resolutions and self-reflection. It’s a time to take a step back and set goals for the year ahead. At VOA Thrift, there are three resolutions we can help you achieve in 2022.

Ring in the New Year in Style

It’s Christmas week, and Thrift is here to help with all your last-minute holiday needs. Still in need of table decoration ideas? Check out our holiday blog here. In a pinch on wrapping paper? Try using some fun fabric instead! Learn all about Furoshiki here.

In this week’s blog, we’re here to help you get ready to ring in the New Year in style! Keeping it casual or dressing up to ring in 2022, no matter your plans for the evening, VOA Thrift is stocked with options to help you celebrate new beginnings.

Unwrap this Holiday Trend

The gift-giving season is here! If you’re looking for a trendy, fun way to wrap your gifts this year, it’s time to check out this 1,200-year-old Japanese tradition known as Furoshiki. Surprise your friends and family with gifts wrapped beautifully in festive cloth. Furoshiki was first established in Japan out of necessity as a way to wrap produce and other goods to keep them fresh. It wasn’t long before the custom spread to gift wrapping! Today, Furoshiki can refer to the style of wrapping as well as the physical cloth for wrapping. Did you know VOA Thrift stores carry fabric?…

Thrifty Holiday Center Pieces

The holiday season is upon us! With Thanksgiving coming up this week and the December holidays just around the corner, we’re here to remind you that your table centerpieces don’t need to break the bank. Whether you’re looking for something fun and funky, classy and elegant, or something that just gets the job done, VOA Thrift locations are stocked with options for your holiday needs.
