‘Christmas in July’ is being celebrated at Shorehaven’s Forgotten Treasures Resale Boutique, 1305 W. Wisconsin in Oconomowoc from July 1 through July 31. The Service League of Volunteers will be collecting gently used Christmas treasures from years’ past. Decorations may include ornaments, pillows, candles, linens, working lights, holiday figurines, holiday clothing, books, wreaths, and homemade items, etc.
‘Christmas in July’ is a precursor for the Service League’s popular Holly Fest and Bake Sale annual holiday event on Saturday, November 6 from 9 am to 2 pm at Forgotten Treasures. Residents are invited to de-clutter their attics or basements of past Christmas decorations and donate them to the Forgotten Treasures. Businesses are invited to clear out and donate their off-season, past holiday inventory while helping seniors in need. Past treasures will become valued treasures for new families.
All donors will receive a donation receipt for tax purposes since Shorehaven is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. Funds raised at the November Holly Fest and Bake Sale event will purchase a Biodex BioStep Semi-Recumbent Elliptical Bike that provides a low-impact, total body workout, helps strengthen muscles associated with mobility, walking and balance.
Drop-off times for your donated Christmas decorations will be the regular Forgotten Treasures open hours on Monday through Friday 10am to 4:30 pm and Saturday 10 am to 2 pm. The shop continues to accept all donations anytime throughout the year.
