As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one thing lacking about the American Red Cross. Unlike our friends overseas, we don’t operate thrift stores (or, as they call them, charity shops).
As a self-proclaimed world class thrifter, this makes me sad. But it also means that I can support other local non-profits with my endless need to purchase knick-knacks, baubles and bric-a-brac.
Take, for example, this fine Red Cross nursing figurine, available at the lovely Community Warehouse — a great place to find vintage goodies.
Note that the Red Cross pin in the photo is already gone. And the last time I posted one of their TOTALLY AWESOME items, it got marked “Sold!” really fast.
So if you like this little nurse, get in touch with them ASAP. Only $16-$20!
