Big goings on at KF Food Bank

August 16, 2013

After a long hiatus, the Kettle Falls Community Chest remodel has finally started. The building had housed both the Food Bank and the Thrift Store; due to lack of room, the Thrift Store had to be closed. “Yes, we are going to re-open it. It was based on donations only, we never had a fixed price on anything, and we’ve lost $4,000 in revenue per year; that doesn’t seem like a lot, but those are donations. We don’t pay for any of the items that we have, and we don’t demand prices on anything—at all,” said Director Susan Urhausen.

Standing the test of time: A love for antiques

August 14, 2013

A little change of pace. That was what Wendy Granville was looking for when she and her family moved from Anacortes to Kettle Falls last year. But when it came to finding a job, Granville returned to what she knows---antiques. She recently opened A Kick in the Attic Antiques, located at 235 E. 3rd Kettle Falls. The store features antiques (of course), vintage items and consignment. Many of the goods Granville brought with her from the antique mall she owned and operated in Anacortes for 17 years named Days Gone By.
It’s safe to say, this lady knows “great junk” when she sees it.
