In order to have a steadier source of income in this shaky (to say the least) economy, AND in an effort( to provide affordable (gently used) goods for the community, the Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center has opened Rockin’ Betty’s Community Thrift Store. Rockin’ Betty’s is located at 3970 Broadway, Suite 105. From Quince and Broadway, go east and take a right at the second driveway. You’ll see the store in front of you at our old location, next door to China Gourmet. (RMPJC’s office is now just above the store.)
We are now accepting gently used, clean donations and already have an amazing variety – from clothing to what*nots, household items, to collector’s items of all descriptions. Just a few of our special items : Limoges China Tea Set; “The White House Cook Book”, 1899; 1880’s Waterbury Kitchen Clock; Senator John Kennedy’s “Strategy for Peace”; oak swivel desk chair, framed and unframed art work; wonderful selection of unusual jewelry, books galore! AND if you need something, please ask us first - you’ll be amazed at what all we have!
We are looking for people to volunteer for 2 or 4 hour shifts in the store. Store hours are 10:30 – 6 Tuesday – Sunday. In addition to waiting on customers, there are several other duties you can sign up for. Sorting and arranging donations, steaming (pressing) garments, or taking excess merchandise to our storage unit.
It is a fun place to shop OR work, and volunteers get a 20% discount on any of the donated merchandise in the store! Please come by and check us out, and call Sheri at 303-443-0252 to volunteer! Rockin’ Betty looks forward to seeing you.
