Angel Society remodels thrift shop

FALLBROOK – The Angel Society of Fallbrook recently celebrated the grand re-opening of its thrift store at 1002 South Main after it was closed for five days in October for renovation.

“The shop was long overdue for a makeover,” said president Marylyn Miller, noting that it had been a decade since the interior was first remodeled after it was damaged in an electrical fire in July 2001.

“People worked so hard and they did it in such a gracious manner,” Miller added.

New carpet was installed and the walls were repainted in the downstairs area, a project that not only required two contractors, but also more than 30 volunteers who removed and re-installed inventory, including all shelving and furnishings.

The thrift shop raises funds for the Angel Society, a local philanthropy that has donated more than $2.8 million to non-profit groups and other worthy causes in the community since it was established in 1978.

The group is looking forward to hosting the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce at its Sundowner meeting at the shop on Wednesday, Nov. 16. For more information, visit
