Lend a Hand: Estate Treasures’ 50’s Event Raises Funds For HQA

girls and alan in car (400 x 268)Volunteers of Estate Treasures, Hospice of Queen Anne’s upscale resale shop, recently raised $2,200 at a special event and sale, “Lost in the 50’s,” which featured 50 percent off all purchases and raffles, music, milkshakes, penny candy and 50’s memorabilia.

In addition to proceeds from what is sold in the shop, Estate Treasures also holds several fundraising events each year, like the Fashion Show and Luncheon held in October. All the funds raised remain in the community and directly benefit Hospice of Queen Anne’s.

“Although we host several fundraising events every year, they are held off site. We wanted to do something fun that would show off the new look of the shop and raise funds for hospice at the same time,” said Linda Sheets, co-manager of Estate Treasures and one of the event organizers.

The shop, which is operated totally by volunteers, features gently worn fine clothing, career and formal apparel, fashion accessories, jewelry, home furnishings and small antiques. Items are accepted for donation during normal business hours.

Estate Treasures is located in Chester at 17 Kent Towne Market. Hours are Monday to Friday 10 a.m. -4:30 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. -4 p.m., and Thursdays until 7 p.m.
