"We have had a wonderful 50 years due to the support of our friends, consignors and shoppers. We would like to thank you for your patronage throughout the years," said Chris Wnorowski of St. Peter's Episcopal Church and The Key.
Those interested can redeem a coupon from the store or the Hi Neighbor for a raffle ticket to win a $50 gift certificate to the Key. A drawing will be held at 3 p.m. Dec. 18. Participants do not to be present for the drawing.
Shoppers are invited to bring "man's best friend" for a doggie treat Dec. 8.
"They have been loyal visitors through out the years and they deserve a pat on the head," Wnorowski said.

Cookies and cider will be served at The Key Dec. 9 through 11.
