8B Wednesday, July 28, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter CONNIE'S, from page 7B Secondhand store shopping is a version of treasure hunting: Anything may turn up (and frequently does), and surprises are just down the aisle. Next time you stop, an entire "new" line of items may be in the store. "1 might have a lot of something one time you come in," said owner Connie Kunsman, "and the next time you come in, none at all. It's always changing." Connie's Place Owner: Connie Kunsman 72850 Highway 70, between Delleker and 832-5111 Open Thursday - Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 July and August only: Thursday Maybe p.m. - Monday involved with: she became a member of the hospital's auxiliary shortly after mov- ing here in 1976, and re- mains a very active member of Eastern Plumas Health Care's Auxiliary. Kunsman was one of those responsible for beginning the Nifty Thrifty. After it was up and running, she vol- unteered her time to running it whenever she could during her nursing years and then became more heavily in- volved after her retirement, even managing it for a num- ber of years. She continues to work there one day a week. "I just can't help it. I just like recycling. I just can't see wasting all these beautiful clothes and things that are still useful," she said. She tries not to compete with the Nifty Thrifty or any of the other thrift stores in the area. She has developed her own style and her own customer base.

"I have a layaway plan and l think that helps, too," she added, mentioning that she can also deliver furniture locally. "Basically, I like to have things that people can use," she summarized. "People sometimes ask 'where is your two-dollar furniture?' and I tell them, 'I don't sell it that way.' I have to be proud of it before I can sell it." That same basic premise keeps her from stocking very many antiques. With antiquity comes fragility, making them less useful in Kunsman's terms. Connie's Place is a one- woman show. Her grandson helps her out with pickups and deliveries and with mov- ing furniture, as well as helping to hang pictures on the high walls. During the summer months, a friend helps out with store sales and cleaning inventory. All the same, Kunsman said she finds herself work- ing late into most evenings, readying merchandise for the following day. This year, for the first time, she plans to be open five days a week during Ju- ly and August. Stop in and see her; you're bound to find something interesting at Connie's Place.
