‘Mega-sale’ to Benefit Area Seniors 

A Holden thrift shop is throwing a “mega-sale” this weekend to benefit area seniors.This Saturday, Aunt Nellie’s Attic will unveil several pallets worth of goods donated from a national retailer, and offer a store-wide discount.The proceeds from the shop go to the Hammond Street Senior Center in Bangor.They sell everything from T-shirts to designer home goods. Items are priced at a few cents on up.Manager Kathy Clegg says she keeps the prices low so lots of people can afford to shop there. That’s one reason why they’re almost to their goal of raising 50 thousand dollars for the senior center this year.”We don’t try to make a huge amount of money on the items, we just try to re-do it into society. It’s almost like recycling, here,” Clegg says.Clegg calls the money they raise the “lifeblood” of the senior center.The sale is this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Aunt Nellie’s Attic on Route 1-A in Holden.
