Last summer, thrift shoppers and DIY project fanatics were able to shop for items at Cedar Street Salvage Co., a shop located in the old church in the 300 block of N. Cedar St. in Hillsboro. Items sold could be used by people on their Pinterest projects at home or already refurbished items.
This summer, Cedar Street Salvage Co. again will be open for business, but only for this upcoming weekend.
Co-organizer Sharon Boese said the decision to open Saturday only, then once again on Arts and Crafts fair weekend came from a variety of reasons, including time.
“We all have lots of other commitments and this gives us more time to find unique items,” Boese said. “We have people already signed up for fall that can’t come this time.”
Boese said one of the aspects she finds interesting about Cedar Street is the different ideas people come up with and what appeals to their different tastes.
“Somebody could be terribly excited to find this tiny piece of architectural stuff, and they have a wonderful use for it,” Boese said. “So how they use it, how they display it in their yard, that is what we look forward to.”
Another change Cedar Street will have is that visitors will pay for their items at each individual booth rather than at the front desk.
“This time you pay at the vendor booth,” Boese said. “We’re going to try that this time, and we’ll see how that works.”
Boese said though there are some changes, she is excited to see all the people come through.
“I encourage people to come and browse through everything,” Boese said. “We have some new vendors, and we have different items every time.”
Cedar Street Salvage Co. will be open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, then will reopen again on Arts and Crafts weekend.
