The Community Thrift Shop is sponsored by the Ministerial Association of a champaign County. When Salvation Army closed their shop in November the community expressed their concern and need for the services provided, and the Ministerial Association stepped up to take over.
The Community Thrift Shop provides several avenues of support; a kind person to listen, a referral process to appropriate services, inexpensive household goods and clothing, and, the excess stock is donated to AmVets. The proceeds from the shop sales stay in our community through a variety of services.
Besides managing the thrift shop, Ruth is retained by Salvation Army to direct services in our community such as the Christmas bell ringers, assistance with gas cards and utilities with a referral from community partners, and providing clothing and furniture which "shoppers" can "buy" in exchange for their community service.
Please support our Community Thrift Shop through donations and purchases!

Today's featured MSD business is My Old Ohio House. Owner: Linda Pastori
My Old Ohio House is a beautiful 1828 brick building at 202 Scioto Street.
Linda Pastori is a native of Urbana. She was a hairdresser for 24 years in town, but even as a child, antiques were "in her blood," and she would tag along with her mom to shops and flea markets! On weekends off Linda would set up at flea markets and shows, and finally decided to open up shop 5 years ago.
Linda carries a wide selection of country antiques and some new gifts including jewelry, soaps, and linens. She is a proud member of the AVSU (Antique and Vintage Shops of Urbana) and excited that there are such diverse, interesting shops for our community and visitors! Visit Linda on Facebook: My Old Ohio House. Hours 11-5 Wed. - Sun.
