Her impression of the Melrose Trading Post articulates the wonder and excitement we hope every MTP first-timer experiences.
The story of her MTP experience is wrapped up with the following statements:
“If you ever suffer from buyer’s remorse, just remember that the Melrose Trading Post serves as a fundraiser for Fairfax High School. The Greenway Arts Alliance originally partnered with Fairfax High and founded the Friends of Fairfax organization in order to fund student activities not included in the school’s budget. Money from the Trading Post’s sales helps with sports uniforms, school newspaper printing and math tournament fees.
All in all, the Melrose Trading Post offers ample ways to spend your Sunday feeling good about yourself. Bring out your inner hipster, negate environmental impact by purchasing used items and benefit a local school all at once.”
