Sparkling jewelry, potted plants in cute containers, wood-backed string art and more are just some of the cool and eclectic finds at “This and That,” a pop-up store at McBride Senior Center in Vacaville.
Even cooler are the folks behind the store — Solano County Office of Education Adult Program staff and students.
The program is all about teaching special education students skills that will help them in life outside of school.
As part of their micro-enterprise projects, the students craft items in class to sell in the shop, advised Clarissa Tuttle, SCOE program administrator for Special Education.
