SUMMIT, NJ - Prices of the ideal Trick-or-Treat ensemble, or Halloween home decor, can be scary.
 
The Junior League of Summit (JLS) Thrift Shop, however, is ready to provide a solution to the rising cost of assuming another identity for one evening, as it hosts it annual Costume Event October 1, from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., at its temporary space located at 5 Larch Place in Summit.
 
The special event features gently used children's and adult and children’s, as well as Halloween and fall housewares and decorations, at prices that are typically 50% less than full retail cost.
 
 
“We have an extensive selection of costumes this year, with plenty of choices for boys and girls, and a number of great buys under $15,” said Thrift Shop Manager Marie Avagliano. The Costume Event will also feature treat buckets, wigs, masks, wands, and costume accessories, with costs starting at a few dollars.

Like all Shop proceeds, all purchases made at the Shop during the costume event directly benefit the local community.
 
“The League is fortunate to have the Thrift Shop as a long-standing and critical component of our Community service offerings. The Shop does not just offer the community the opportunity to purchase goods at discounted prices. It is also the League’s primary revenue source. All money earned from Shop purchases fund our community projects, grants and scholarships,” said JLS President Christine Yearing, “The Costume Event is one of the Shop’s most popular events – it is an annual favorite for the League members and the community.”

The Junior League of Summit Thrift Shop in Summit was established in 1934, and offers new and gently used clothing and shoes for men, women and children, toys, decorative items for the home, house wares, and furniture that is deeply discounted. It is the primary fundraiser for the Junior League of Summit and has provided the resources for the League’s many grants, projects, programs, and scholarships over the years.
 
Since its inception, the Shop has raised more than $3,000,000 to benefit Summit and surrounding communities. The Junior League of Summit Thrift Shop is one of only two thrift shops in New Jersey featured in the book, True Prep. The Shop accepts MasterCard and Visa.

The temporary JLS Thrift Shop space at 5 Larch Place is located next to the Calvary Church parking lot directly behind the Shop at 37 DeForest Avenue. For more information on the Junior League of Summit, visit.jlsummit.org , or contact 908-273-7349.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
