Business is good at Abby’s House Thrift Shop as the 30-year-old business tries to make the most of a new location since the start of the year.

The store has temporarily moved to 875-R Main St., near Oberlin and Ripley streets, because of renovations at the organization’s High Street headquarters.

“We are very fortunate here,” said Wendy Harvey, Thrift Shop manager. “We’ve actually done exceptionally well, a lot better than we anticipated.”

The thrift shop will host its fifth annual Holiday Shopping Bazaar from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the new location.

“We raise more money in four hours than we do in a whole week,” Ms. Harvey said of the event. “It’s a big community thing now.”

Abby’s House Thrift Shop is tailored to women. While the new location is smaller, with around 60 volunteers helping out at various times, there is plenty of merchandise. The circular racks boast gently worn, designer brand clothing, ranging from Talbots to Ralph Lauren, for just $4.
