Never the same experience twice — that’s true of most resale shops. It’s part of the fun. Saline’s Nu2U is a fresh addition to the local lineup of inexpensive family retailers in the area. Nu2U is a venture of Washtenaw Christian Academy, with an inventory of clothing, housewares, furniture and toys, all courtesy of donations from the public. The store is staffed by volunteers, with one full-time manager (a post WCA is looking to fill). Parent-volunteer Lisa Donat is thrilled to be a part of the venture — “it’s been a dream of mine for a long time,” she says — and eager to get the word out. “Every day, people come in and say ‘I didn’t know you were here!” she says. WSC hopes soon to offer pickup of donations, but for now, feel free to drop off your gently used clothes and toys. Donations are tax-deductible, and all net proceeds go to fund WSC’s ministry. 1311 E. Michigan Ave., Saline. 734-316-2342. www.nu2usaline.com
