Do You See What I See?  Seeing Children in Need Through a Trauma Lens

Trauma-informed care provides a new perspective on offering help.   When we shift from asking "What is wrong with you?" to "What has happened to you?" , this  can reduce the blame and shame that some people experience when they receive assistance.  It builds an understanding of how the past impacts the present, and it can be a first step toward healing and recovery.

Trauma-informed care takes a partnership approach, where healing is led by the person being helped and is supported by the person offering assistance.  Together,  each learns from the other. There's greater respect, movement towards healing, and assistance  that  truly helps.

White elephants?......everything but the elephant...

Check out our stocking stuffer display.....everything but the coal (or apples, or peanuts)

New stuff in the man cave....everything but the man, you have to supply him.

Lots of lights....all tested and ready for you to hang on your trees, awnings, norwich pines, ...  single color or multi color...if you need really big ones for outdoor trees just ask, we have them somewhere.

New donations are pouring in, which is so much better than leaving them out in the pouring rain!  Thank you for bringing your items in during our open hours, even if it gets a little chaotic!

Lots of items for decorating:  table cloths, runners, matching napkins, lovely Christmas place settings, candle holders, greens, ornaments.

We have a singing Christmas tree.... it is truly lovely ....well actually obnoxious... but it just may be what you need for that special person on your giving list.  Remember though, he/she who gives, may also receive!

Ask what you can do with a clothes hangar and round christmas ornament bulbs... plus all sorts of other things for your crafty needs. 

Hint for the day:  when baking a pre-made pizza; take off the plastic wrap before putting in the oven.  From one who knows.

Coffee is on... spirits are high (holiday spirit that is, not "spirits"  spirits... music on demand, or no music on demand... maybe even some treats.   But relax, laugh a little and enjoy this time of preparation.

Monday 11-6; Tuesday, Friday and Saturday 10-4.  We will be greeting you at the door. (a little holiday poetry).
