Rittman Treasure Chest, You can always find a treasure here.

I have just got back home from a little journey into town. When I say I went into town, I mean Rittman, as opposed to the big city, which is Wadsworth. My sister wanted to do some shopping. One of my mottos during the holiday shopping season is "Peace on Earth, Goodwill for values."

Anyway my travels led me to this new thrift shop called "Rittman Treasure Chest". I was told that it was called this because everybody can find a treasure here. This store is operated by members of the Rittman All Sports Boosters, from this point known as the Worlds Greatest All Sports Boosters or WGASB(tm).

The donations sold here are comparable, and in alot of cases lower, than the Goodwill across town. Proceeds go to help those who are less fortunate than others. Also the goal of the WGASB(tm), is to make it possible for anyone who wants, to be able to participate in the school sport of their choice.

Back to the Treasure Chest name. I was told while I was shopping there that someone bought a set of cups, I believe, for a dollar and resold them for over three hundred dollars on eBay.

The Treasure Chest is open Monday thru Saturday, from 9am to 6pm, closed on Sunday. It's located on S. Main St. Next to the VFW hall.

I need to get myself to Rittman sometime soon. I love going to the resale shops in the area.

I am tired of being cloned. I have been hanging low hoping the person would go away, but as soon as I post, the person posted again.

It is nice being on this small break.

Visit this one, as you would be helping out one of my favorite causes, and that is the Rittman Sports programs. I know of too many cases of extracurricular activities keeping kids, my son and myself included, in school. It is definitely a privilege working with the booster groups in Rittman.
