TUMBLEWEED GIFT SHOP is a not-for-profit retail store in the heart of the Sherbrooke community. While Tumbleweed Gift Shop was established to raise funds for equipment and special projects at Sherbrooke it has another purpose as well. The shop creates opportunities for volunteers to contribute in a very meaningful way and provides work opportunities for some of our residents.
Tumbleweed has become a central meeting place and destination for residents and their families. Going to Tumbleweed is an outing and enables residents to shop in a normalized environment. It is also a place where residents, volunteers and families can chat over a cup of tea or hot chocolate and talk about the events of the day. The shop gives residents who may not get out often the chance to see what's new in the stores and gives them an opportunity to dream about what to buy and to enjoy the changing seasonal decorations.
The thrift shop has joined the gift shop to become the new and improved Tumbleweed Gift Shop. The shop is a mix of old and new items with something for everyone. We have the usual array of fabulous gift items with lots of new stock requested by residents, families and our wonderful supportive shoppers. We have inspired gifts for you and for everyone on your shopping list. We doing our shopping at gift shows and we also bring in some consignment items.

If you have thrift items to donate, particularly household items drop them at the shop or at receiving. Home and garden items are in great demand so if you are cleaning out your basement, attic or garage we can help you get organized by taking items that still have some good life in them. All proceeds from Tumbleweed will be used to enhance quality of life for residents at Sherbrooke. Everyone is welcome, volunteers are needed. Please call 655-3746 for more information.
