If you don't have a valentine, February can feel well, a little blah. We want to get your creative ideas going and give you a jump start on your spring projects. Read on to get ideas for some great DIYs to spice up your weekends, and your home.
There are a lot of projects that can bring you satisfaction and happiness without spending a lot of money. Stop in to see us this month to get going on your next one!
Come and join your neighbors Sunday, June 4th for the second in our series of monthly Sunday afternoon events. This time around, we will hold a FREE workshop where you can learn how to take a boring garden pot and make it into a unique colorful mosaic. Bring your own clay pot- NOT glass- or buy one from us. We will supply all tools, as well as coffee and pastries from Peet's and Arizmendi. Store staff member Paula will be leading the troops in what promises to be a fun and exciting afternoon.
Last Sunday was the first ever First Sundays at SVDP Fremont. We hosted 8 women (men are always invited!) for our sea glass workshop which was fun and relaxing way for folks to get to know more about us and meet some neighbors and community members.
We're excited to continue our series with a Terra Cotta Pot project on June 4th, please stop by to see what we are up to or ,email fremont@svdp-alameda,org for more information.
Fremont Thrift Store's First Sundays
Please join your friends and neighbors at the St Vincent de Paul store for the kick-off of First Sundays- starting with a seaglass workshop Sunday May 7 from 1-3pm.
We will be making seaglass from old glass vases or other glass items you can either purchase at the store (preferably) or bring from home. We will provide the additional simple materials and instructions required for this DIY project.

An opportunity to come across something new, a chance encounter with a new friend, time alone to just browse- these are a few things that bring people in to bookstores. In this digital age it can be hard to to slow down, take your time, and lose yourself in a new idea or fantasy story. Bookstores provide all of this, bookstores are magical.
SVDP thrift has some great book browsing in their stores; with sections from crafts to cooking, bios to science fiction, there's something for everyone at our Fremont and Livermore locations.
