First, who are we? We are long-time sellers on a popular internet auction site, with more than 1100 transactions, and a 99.9% positive feedback rating. Due to changes in the bays search and item exposure methods, we have chosen to sell here at eCrater, and at our Shopify store, www.The-Hroost.com
Why Do We Sell Stuff?
First, it is a great way to do fundraising.
Many of the items for sale have been donated specifically so that the funds raised can be donated to Faith Lutheran Church in Elko, Nevada, and 10% of ALL sales is donated directly to Faith Lutheran Church. We have compiled a cookbook, Soul Food (so named after our Wednesday noon brown bag lunch/bible study time). ALL proceeds from cookbook sales are donated to Faiths landscaping fund.
In addition it is my honor and privilege to serve as a member of the board of directors for the Boys and Girls Club of Elko. This wonderful program provides after-school and weekend activities for 1212 children-many of whom are from poor and low-income families. BGCE provides academic/computer, sports, art, music and other activities for these kids. Fully funded by grants and donations, the club relies on its fundraisers, and so, as above, 100% of of the proceeds from the sale of items donated directly to the club as well as 10% of all our sales are also donated to this worthy organization.
Second, we travel throughout the west, looking for unusual, unique and hard to find items. On our travels we find vintage and contemporary clothing and accessories. Some are manufacturer closeouts, some are gently used.
If youre looking for Ralph Lauren, Talbots, Pendleton, Chicos, Levis, Tommy Bahama, Tommy Hilfiger, Coldwater Creek, Quiksilver or other great designer names, come on in to The Hroost! We love finding interesting and one-of-a kind items and offering them to you!
