    The Re-Gift Shop is the perfect time to donate that gift you received, from someone you love, but really can’t use. Like that 3rd kettle your Mom gave you (sorry Mom). Or that 2nd kettle your Mom gave you (again, really sorry Mom) the year before that. Or… you got the idea. If you would like to donate items, please contact Anna Guz or Sveta Frunchak.
