Helping the Bribie Island Community

CLOSURE

Posted on | March 26, 2020 | Comments Off on CLOSURE

The shop will be closing at 12 o’clock on Saturday 28th March due to the Coronavirus. We will not be taking any donations Friday or Saturday as we do not have the staff to sort them.

We have tried to remain open as long as possible but it has become time to ensure the safety of our staff and many volunteers.

Currently we are looking at remaining closed until the end of April and will reassess the situation then.  If there is a change in government information or circumstances  and we can open before the end of April we will.

Our gates will be locked for the duration and we ask that no donations are left on the footpath as this is council land and it will be treated as dumping.

We hope that the island residents remain healthy and that we can open again soon. As soon as we know when we can open it will be put on this site.

Thank you.

Customers please be advised that we do not supply bags so please remember to bring a bag when shopping.

PLEASE RETURN OUR SHOPPING BASKETS

Over the past few weeks we have had sales on clothes and quite a few of our customers have taken our shopping baskets to their cars and have not returned them. We have only a few left and this is causing problems for our staff and customers.  If you have one of our shopping baskets please return it when you next come to see us, just place it inside the door with the other baskets.

QUEENS BIRTHDAY MONDAY 7th OCTOBER 2019

Please be aware the shop will be closed for the public holiday on Monday 7th October.

WASTE LEVY

Busy Fingers now has to pay when we go to the Caboolture Tip, this is an expensive exercise, so please only bring clean clothes and items in good condition when donating. This will keep our costs down enabling us to donate more funds to the island.

We have many bargains happening at the moment so please check out the blackboard as you enter the shop.

On a sad note the Busy Fingers family send our condolences to Fred and his family at the passing of his lovely wife Anita.  Anita was one of our best customers and our friend. She came to the shop several times a week and would wander around happily and speak to so many people. She was also a generous person droppng in with biscuits for morning tea. She will be sadly missed by the Busy Fingers staff and volunteers.

SALES & NEWS

Posted on | May 17, 2019 | Comments Off on SALES & NEWS

For bargains and sales please see our Blackboard at the entrance of the shop. Sales are advertised here daily.

Currently the last week of the month is clothing week where you can fill a basket for $5, this will continue until further notice.

Please call 3408 1014 if you wish to know what is on sale on the day you will be visiting as bargains and sales change constantly.

We are once again having trouble with dumping.

A vehicle dumped 2 filthy urine filled mattresses outside our gates at 1.30 in the morning, and after following rain these mattresses were hard to move. Please take your rubbish to the dump yourself, our volunteers are wonderful people helping their community and they shouldn’t be subjected to this type of disgusting behaviour.

We wish to send our condolences to the family of Mavis Howard who recently passed away, Mavis was a great supporter of Busy Fingers. She would give some of her valuable time to putting together lucky dip bags for the children. She would always ensure we had plenty on hand for the school holidays as the children loved finding the many surprises inside. Mavis was a lovely lady and she will be sadly missed by the Busy Fingers Family.

 

SALES

Hello
We hope all our supporters enjoyed a wonderful Easter Break with their family and friends.

We wish to thank everyone for noticing the signs on the fence about leaving donations over public holidays and/or anytime the gates are closed. This holiday produced nothing being left on the footpath which pleased not only us but also the council, as it is their land and leaving donations there is classified as dumping and fines could apply. We did not want to see this occur, so thank you to all who kept their donations until today to drop off.

Please be aware that the shop will be CLOSED ON THURSDY 25TH FOR ANZAC DAY AND ALSO ON MONDAY 6TH MAY FOR LABOUR DAY.

SALES        We currently have many items on sale for 50% off marked price, this will continue until stocks last.

50% OFF ALL  FURNITURE,   DINNER SETS,   PRINTS,   LAMPS AND SPEAKERS

FILL A BASKET OF CLOTHES FOR $5

FILL A BASKET OF BOOKS FOR $5

FILL A BASKET OF BOOKS – SECONDS (MARKED WITH A DOT) FOR $2.

These sales will continue until further notice – PLEASE CHECK THE BLACKBOARD AS YOU ENTER THE SHOP FOR ANY OTHER BARGAINS

PICK UPS AND DELIVERIES

Please be aware that we receive many calls for pick up of donations  – we arrange pick ups for the mornings as the afternoons are reserved for the delivery of purchases.

Our pick up board gets full quickly so if you require a pick up please give us as much notice as possible as we would like to fit in with your timetable as much as possible.

If you need a pick up or have any questions please call our manager Sonia on  3408 1014.

Thank You
