Looking for the perfect gift for someone on your shopping list this holiday season? Patch can help.
For the past few weeks, Severna Park Patch has been visiting local shops and business to find out what items they are offering to holiday shoppers looking to save, spend or splurge on gifts.
Today’s gift ideas come from Treasures, at 652 Ritchie Highway #B.
Located in Park Plaza, Treasures features a wide variety of items donated form area residents. Proceeds from Treasures benefit Hospice of the Chesapeake and the store is staffed by volunteers with the exception of manager Donna Richardson.
Treasures does offer some items on consignment, but a majority of the items for sale are donated.
“We are very lucky being located in this area because we get some very nice donations,” Richardson said.
While the store has its share of donated clothes and other items, there are several unique gifts available for someone on your shipping lists, and your proceeds will go to a worthy cause.
Save (Items $5 or less)
- Books (Hardbacks $1.50, Paperbacks, 40 cents, Children’s Books 25 cents)—Treasures has a very wide and current selection of books featuring authors like Mary Higgins Clark, Dan Brown and James Patterson.
- Newborn and Pre-Teen Clothes ($1-$4)—Items like the Santa’s Helper onesies (pictured) are available for $3.
- Dishes (25 cents each)—If you’re having an extra large crowd for the holidays and running out of dishes, Treasures has plain white dishes available for a quarter.
Spend (Items $60 or less)
- Golf Painting ($50)—If you’re looking for a gift for the golfer in your life, consider this golf painting, which would go great in any office or den.
- Rocking Chair ($40)—This wooden rocking chair would be great for someone expecting a baby in the coming year. It would also be nice in a guest room.
