Who needs to be at fashion week in New York when a bit of style has landed in Greenville. A new store opened its doors to customers Tuesday and there’s good news for shoppers, prices are cheap.
Shabby Chic is kind of like a thrift store, people can drop off donations plus pick things up like clothes, jewelry, artwork, and furniture.
The store was opened by Guiding Lives Foundation, an organization that promotes awareness for people with mental health and substance abuse disorders. The foundation opened Shabby Chic to help raise funds to assist those types of people.
Jeremy Schwartz the Vice President of Guiding Lives Foundation tells WITN “100% of the proceeds, everything we make here, it’s all going to the foundation and towards reaching out goals, it’s an important cause in the community and we hope we can get some recognition and get some help.”
Some residents that look to the foundation for help are so excited about the business venture they’ve already contributed to the store by donating artwork.
The store’s located at 504 Dexter Street in Greenville and all donations are tax deductible.
