Second Season gets a loading zone

Fishline’s thrift store, Second Season, has had a successful few years in its location on the waterfront in downtown Poulsbo.

Our only limitation was a lack of loading and unloading parking space, needed especially for those dropping off donations.  Generous supporters of our work found a way, keeping merchandise flowing through our shop, but it wasn’t easy or consistent.

The new Anderson Parkway parking lot has been revitalized because of its recent redesign and now includes a load/unload zone right in front of our shop.  This is a gift that will keep on giving for us, making it easy for patrons to drop off their items and pick up purchased ones.  The result of this will hopefully be increased sales, which we will turn into food, clothing and housing for struggling residents. The ramifications of this one parking improvement will reach far into the future and into the lives of people who need our help the most.

Thank you, Mayor Erickson, City Council and city planners, for helping us in this very direct, practical way. And for those of you who wish to drop off your donations, come check out our new curbside service.
