WINNEMUCCA, Nev.—There were plenty of happy winners Saturday following a daylong yard sale at the Poke & Peek Thrift Shop.
The local thrift shop extended its hours Saturday, February 11, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to offer shoppers plenty of time to seek out the best bargains on everything in the Poke’s yard, from camping, hunting and fishing gear to furniture and more.
And just to make things interesting, Humboldt Hospital Auxiliary President and Poke & Peek Chairman Joe McIntyre sweetened the deal by offering shoppers the chance to win some really great prizes.
“We had a great day,” said McIntyre of the yard sale. “It was truly a huge success!”
The Poke & Peek, which is located at 3200 Bengochea Circle in Sage Heights, is the sole source of income for the Humboldt Hospital Auxiliary, an all-volunteer organization distinguished by members’ pink coats.
The “pink ladies” and their gentlemen counterparts provide service in the various departments at Humboldt General Hospital as well as at the Poke & Peek where volunteers sort, price, display and sell clothing, toys, books and household items.
The Poke & Peek Thrift Shop is open Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. Donations are gladly accepted during the store’s hours of operation. A donation drop-box is also located to the west of the store entrance for after-hour donations.
