Senior Sampler

The Senior Sampler program affords community senior crafters, 60 years old and over, with a venue in which their handcrafted items are displayed and sold. The program is integral to supplemental income for many of the senior artisans, as 100% of proceeds are returned to the senior crafter. The Senior Sampler craft shop is located inside the Thrift Shop and open the same hours.

The Senior Sampler was the first philanthropic program of Assistance League Reno-Sparks.  During FY2023-2024, more than 265 crafters received supplemental income from the sale of their handcrafted merchandise. Since 1978, over $1.5 million has been returned to senior artisans in the community.
