Prime Time House gave me a purpose in life. It gave me a reason for functioning, a reason for getting up every day. Before Prime Time House, I would stay at home, sleep, and do nothing, but now I have a purpose. I have a reason to get out of bed every day. I have friends. I have people who I need.
PRIME FINDS Pop-Up Store
PRIME FINDS Home for the Holidays:
A true partnership of time, talent, and treasure. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of our 2021 PRIME FINDS Home for the Holidays!
Through the generous contribution from State Representative David & Lynne Wilson, we created a wonderful store in their charming 1829 gabled roof Bantam house. By contributing as a volunteer, sponsor, donor, or shopper your combined generosity enabled us to raise nearly $50,000 to help so many on their pathway to mental wellness.
PRIME FINDS store is fully staffed by volunteers with all items donated by generous supporters. 100% of the proceeds benefit the mental health programs at Prime Time House. Every purchase is tax-deductible and brings the gift of hope to those suffering from mental illness who come to us for help. The shop is widely known for its attractively displayed, high quality used furniture, home and holiday goods, sold at great prices. Not only has it created awareness about Prime Time House but it has attracted hundreds of new supporters who have donated goods, time, services, and funds.

No matter what your talents are or how many hours you can offer, we could use your help! The pop-up store is largely successful because of the dedication of volunteers who give of their time and talents during the busy holiday season. Volunteers wear many hats, including cashing out customers, receiving donations, pricing goods, re-stocking shelves, greeting shoppers, and helping them with purchases.
If you would like to join our team, email:
You will be contacted by Jackie Miller who graciously donates her time to organize the volunteer schedule. Having done so since the inception of the store, Jackie is a prime example of how volunteers make PRIME FINDS a success!
Thanks to the generosity of many, we collected so many gently used good-quality items for our store that we had to empty the entire garage in Thomaston and move the goods to Daley Storage until they popped up at our store.
The task of accepting, rejecting, unboxing, and pricing hundreds of items was no easy task. The lion’s share of this was done by volunteers, Luce Jakimetz and Judi Armstrong., who were assisted by Pucci McGill, Nancy Rogers, and Sandra Zielinski. The tenacity of Jeff Geddes found the Thomaston space, swept it clean, and staged it with shelving. Jeff’s father, Eugene Geddes, helps by hauling away garbage and fixing a donation or two. John Jakimetz restored an end table thereby doubling its price!
And what would we do without our donors? Your concern for our members and supporters of our mission is evident. Thank you to Louisa Roraback for facilitating a large donation from the Woodridge Lake Clubhouse, and to our members and staff who helped move the goods.
The collection is truly a team effort, displaying the enthusiasm, creativity, and camaraderie experienced at the store. Over its five-year history, the store has netted over $128,000 enabling Prime Time House to meet the needs of Litchfield County’s most vulnerable on their road to mental wellness. Thank you all for making it possible.
