We will open on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings for 4 hours and will re-assess this during the week, it all depends on how quickly we can arrange our volunteer roster for the following weeks.

RULES AND REGULATIONS

Of course, we will be adhering to the distancing regulations and we will have floor markings in place. We are asking customers to turn LEFT as they enter the front door and use the HAND SANITISER ON THE WALL first, then continue through the shop starting at the electrical and kitchenware, through the furniture towards the clothing and Bric-a-Brac. We will only be allowing 30 people in the shop at a time and this will include our shop staff.

We welcome the drop off of donations and our gates will be open from 7.15 am.  We will be doing pick ups but all items MUST be put outside the house as our drivers will not be allowed inside homes to bring items out at the present time.  So if you require a pick up please call 34081014 and make sure you have the items outside for collection. We will also do deliveries, but once again we will have to leave the purchases on your patio/garage.

The staff are presently rearranging the clothing racks so we will have plenty of winter clothes available for purchase as well as some racks of summer items.

VOLUNTEERS    We have limited places available for volunteers, so if you wish to join us please call Sonia on 3408 1014 or drop into the shop to speak to her.

We can only remain open if all our customers adhere to the rules, we would like to get back to normal as soon as possible, so please keep your distance from other customers, and if you have children with you please KEEP THEM WITH YOU and do not allow them to wander around alone or play with the toys, so they also are adhering to distancing.

Please come and shop and leave as soon as you are finished so that others can enter the shop.

We look forward to opening up  and seeing our valued customers again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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.
