DAVENPORT — Sitting at tables throughout Cinderella’s Cellar resale shop, volunteers mark prices for the Catholic Service Board’s annual Christmas Open House. Proceeds from the resale shop benefit The Kahl Home.
This year’s open house is Nov. 7 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Cinderella’s Cellar, 230 W. 35th St. in Davenport, said Cindy Hagen and Joni Saelens, two of seven co-chairs for the Catholic Service Board.
Saelens said that from the time of the open house until Christmas the store will be transferred into a Christmas wonderland. “There will be Christmas clothing, wreaths and trees transformed by the volunteers to look like new, and knickknacks,” added Hagen.
The 130-member Catholic Service Board started in the 1950s to help children and eventually changed focus to take care of seniors. Members volunteer to work at the resale shop, which is open on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The store, open year-round, offers children’s and adult clothing, shoes and accessories, collectibles, jewelry, household items and furniture.
