Robert Lorant, a Bertha New Life Thrift Store employee, is shown spray painting a donated dresser to be sold at the store, located at 650 W. 5th St. in LaPlace.

The store is open for sales from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and donations can be dropped off at any time.

Bertha New Life Thrift Store is asking for donations of space heaters to warm the building, winter clothing, furniture and cleaning supplies.

Donations in good condition are tax deductible. A portion of proceeds, excluding operating costs, are contributed to a women’s shelter.
