I got three responses to my friend's search for someone to buy her unwanted crystal and china.
The first suggested the Encore consignment shop at Routes 1 and 52, where she volunteers. Proceeds from Encore sales benefit
the Chester County Hospital. She wrote, "If you check the Encore web site at www.encoreshop.org if will give you all the
important information. . . . The BEST
part is that the money is staying in the community and helping the
hospital. Stop in to see the shop when we reopen after Labor Day. You will be
impressed by the huge check on the wall that shows the amount given the
hospital this past year by the Encore Shop of the Kennett Auxiliary. Over
the years we have raised over $1,000,000!"
Another reader suggested checking the website replacements.com.
And a third, a quick-off-the-mark staffer for a local land preservation nonprofit, suggested that my friend could always donate the goodies to her group's upcoming silent auction.
