A new thrift shop, The Thrifty Gifter, recently opened at 125 South Wilson Avenue, next to the Morehead Conference Center. The shop is owned by Donna Calvert, Brenda Porter and Kelli Besselman who are all lifelong residents of Morehead.
The shop name was based on family practices and traditions. The owners come from a large close-knit family and were raised by hard-working parents on a strict budget, who taught them to reuse and re-purpose things they already have without spending a lot of money for something new.
Shoppers will find many pre-loved items, gift baskets, unique gift items, customized T-shirts, personalized items made to order, jewelry, home decor, clothing, and other miscellaneous items.
The Thrifty Gifter is open on Fridays from noon to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
