Henricus ‘Hops’ event about more than beer


The crowds thronged roads and walkways leading to their destination. Some visitors pushed strollers; many brought multiple children; others came singly or in couples. But all shared the same singlemindedness and eagerness to achieve their goals.

No, it wasn't Black Friday.

These visitors came seeking history, family fun – and beer.

Store’s fans enjoy ‘shopping for a purpose’

Thrifting and thriving with ‘Sisters’

Bargain hunting in western Henrico got a whole lot easier once the sisters were born.

The Thrifty Sisters, that is.

Founded in Dec. 2012 to benefit the Little Sisters of the Poor (LSP), who operate a home for the elderly on Michaels Road, the thrift store – located at 8911 Patterson Avenue – has far exceeded expectations.

For the shop’s initial year, organizers set a goal of donating $10,000 to help the Sisters in their mission at St. Joseph’s Home. But in only 15 months of operation, the store’s proceeds resulted in donations of $50,000 – and board members are scrambling to expand their storage and retail space to help the resale outlet grow. > Read more.
