Eagle’s Nest Closet is Restocked!

A message from Jenine St.Clair –

A few new items have been added to the Eagle’s nest clothing closet. Help yourself!
I noticed an XS North Face raincoat, there are a few added girls shirts, pants and workout shorts up to size 12, a large (unisex) sweatshirt, girls workout shorts size 5/6. Plus more that has been there on the rack. Shoes, sneakers and boots. A couple winter coats are still available. There are brand new winter hats and mittens – tags still on them! There is a pack of size small girls underwear.

And for the boys, lots and lots of clothing sizes 4t-8/10 including workout shorts & workout pants, slacks, and long & short sleeve shirts.

Stop by or have your child check it out! It is now organized a little better by size. Help yourself to as many items as you like. Take a size up if you see something for next year.
