Prices for the featured clothing ranged from $5 to $10 and a number of Coach designer handbags were price at $20. More merchandise, including jewelry, is always on display in the VNA store.

The store is open every day but Wednesday and Sunday and donated items are accepted from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
