December 2, 2013: Tis the Christmas season, and I for one am glad it's here! Robin and I intend to end this year on a high note by offering some pretty good deals.

Is It Okay To Buy A Christmas Gift From A Thrift Store?
One of those reason being the option to give someone that you love, a gift that is unique, affordable and has been gently loved and appreciated by another special person.
As an example, you can't walk into Target or Walmart and buy an original copy of The National Geographic Magazine that was printed in April, 1919.
That would be an amazing gift to give someone (a 94 year old publication), and that gift cost you under $20.00.
The issue is in the store today.
What Things Cost In 1919?:
The average car cost $525
The average wage was $920
Dial telephones are introduced by the American Telephone and Telegraph Company and the popup toaster was invented.
Each week until Christmas Eve, we at Port City Thrift will show you a unique gift or two that you can't buy at the big box stores but will be for sale at Port City Thrift.
However, lets not rush past Thanksgiving to get to the Christmas Holiday Season. Robin and I hope that everyone has a great Thanksgiving.
