Heirlooms is on the move
By Pat Sunderland
Sandra Barie, a Heirlooms for Hospice volunteer, arranges a clothing display at Heirlooms' new location at 532 Main Street. The commercial building was recently renovated by Pam and Shane Atchley; Heirlooms finished the interior with repurposed wood and crates. Store manager Amanda Twamley said the move resulted in an additional 1,000 square feet of very usable space, not only for merchandise but also for sorting and processing donations. There's ample parking behind the store, which features gently used clothing, home décor, home furnishings, kitchen goods, jewelry and vintage items. "Everything we did before, only bigger and better," said Wendy Hayduk, who works with the Heirlooms for Hospice stores in Delta, Montrose and Grand Junction to create attractive displays. Proceeds from all three stores support the mission of HopeWest, which provides support for those facing serious illness and grief in our communities. The stores are staffed primarily by volunteers. The Delta Heirlooms has just three paid employees, including Twamley and assistant manager Justin Medill.
