RYE, N.Y. -- The interior decorator in Judith Steeres never really retired as she carefully arranges the secondhand dishware and trinkets by color at Miriam's Attic . "I love doing this work," said Steeres, a resident at the Osborn retirement community. Miriam's Attic is a non-profit resale shop located on the grounds of the Osborn and is open on Tuesdays year-round from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This Saturday it held one of two summer sales. The next one will be on August 13. Here you will find antique and used furniture, kitchenware, art and accessories that simply can't be found anywhere else. All proceeds go to benefit the Osborn's Charity Care program, which provides financial support for residents at the Osborn who could not otherwise afford to live there. It also supports the Osborn's Home Care program, which provides assistance to senior citizens living at home in Rye and surrounding communities. All staff at Miriam's Attic are volunteers, many of whom are residents at the Osborn who enjoy the working environment of the shop. "It's a lot fun working here with the residents," said shop manager Susan Olson who is also fund development coordinator at the Osborn. "There are so many great things here, and people are really happy when they find something they like."
