How it all began ........

The ReGifting Store opened three months ago. I first found out about this store while reading another blog and decided to go check it out. I instantly fell in love. The store had only been open for a month but I could tell it was going to be my favorite place to thrift shop. It is located right down the street from my house so I found myself there nearly every night that week.

After a week of shopping, I started talking to the man who opened the store and found out that it's a non-profit and completely run by volunteers, any profit they make is used to help the community. I visited a few more times and decided I wanted to become more involved. For the past 6 weeks I have spent nearly every day volunteering my time. I have witnessed so much kindness and so many stories have touched my heart. I hope my journey will inspire you to be part of something bigger than you ever thought possible.

  1. I love hearing about your inspiring journey! Similar to what I did, volunteering for the artists... Look where I ended up! Owning the darn place, but I am very excited each day to work, no money for me, all the money goes back into the gallery for keeping it going. I do love it! I pray that you will be blessed in your new adventure! That doors will open and miracles abound! Caroline
