...let someone else try their luck with the gifts you’ve received from past lovers.
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 08, 2012
Today, WebThriftStore.com, the first online thrift store platform for charities, launched their first Valentine’s Day sale of ex-lovers’ gifts, with all proceeds going to charity.
Famed New York jewelry designer Margo Manhattan donated one of her popular “Mini Prisoner of Love” bracelets to help raise money for the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®). The captivating and fun, edgy enamel red heart makes sure that you won’t be without love. The bracelet sells for $155, all of which goes to benefit the ASPCA. You can find it at http://bit.ly/ymAiqF. In addition to purchasing the bracelet, you can also present your best offer. All details are on the product’s page.
WebThriftStore.com features a variety of gifts for your Valentine, including clothing, jewelry, collectibles and electronics, all donated by individuals to benefit charity. Like offline thrift stores, WebThriftStore.com is a great place to find unusual items and incredible bargains. WebThriftStore.com is also the place to donate stuff you don’t need anymore, like a Valentine’s Day gift from an ex-lover. The best part is, shopping and donating can be done from the comfort of your home.
