Poke & Peek Thrift Shop to Host Christmas Open House

The Humboldt Hospital Auxiliary is ready to kick-start Christmas.

The all-volunteer organization is inviting the entire community to its Poke & Peek Thrift Shop for a Christmas Open House.

The free event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, November 14, at 3200 Bengochea Circle in Sage Heights.

Volunteers have been saving Christmas items all year long in preparation, and Saturday’s event will give them a chance to finally showcase the holiday wares.

Shoppers will enjoy an abundance of holiday décor, gifts for every member of the family, and plenty of stocking stuffers.

The Poke & Peek 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.

Each week, 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.

The Poke & Peek Thrift Shop’s regular hours are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays and from noon to 4 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Donations are gladly accepted during the store’s hours of operation; receipts are provided upon request.

A donation drop box is also located to the west of the store entrance for after-hours donations.
