A thrift store created in May, 2009 by Chris Fannin and Linda Janssen with the help of the Osage United Church of Christ.  The SHOP ON STATE, a MISSION FOR MITCHELL COUNTY, is a very special ministry in caring for God’s people who may need temporary assistance because of illness or unforeseen circumstances in life.  Donated clothing, housewares and furniture are sold at low prices or given at no cost to the needy. 

The SHOP ON STATE protects the environment by recycling your usable goods.
