In encouraging Hilltop City shoppers to attend, JLS Thrift Shop Manager Marie Avagliano said, “The Holiday Boutique is a great event to kick off the holiday season. We have an amazing selection this year. In addition to the high-quality, gently-used items that customers have come to expect from the Thrift Shop, the Holiday Boutique is the one time of year that the Shop also offers a huge amount of brand new merchandise, complete with tags.

“It is truly amazing that we have an ability to directly contribute to local families’ holidays,"  said Junior League of Summit President Christine Yearing. "With the Holiday Boutique’s affordable offerings, we enable people to fill their homes with love – and generous gifts. The fact that the money stays within the local community simply spreads the holiday cheer. We thank our customers and the community for your ongoing support,”
