CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Women in search of upscale, lightly used clothing and accessories suitable for work or casual wear can find them at a new downtown thrift shop while at the same time giving a helping hand to other women.
Dress to a Tea opened earlier this month at 17 W. King St. with an inventory of brand-name women's suits, blazers, blouses and tailored slacks in all sizes donated by professional women in the community. Proceeds from sales will benefit The House of Grace at 307 Lincoln Way East, a Christian life skills, education and mentoring program in Chambersburg.
"This is a neat place. This is an awesome place," Becky Nicklas said as she sifted through racks of clothing. "I got a dress for $15. You can't beat that."
The store is holding its grand opening today, during Chambersburg's 25th annual Applefest, although customer traffic was steady Friday afternoon. Tea, spiced cider and cookies will be offered to customers today, said Louise Hunsecker, the store manager.
