CELEBRATE TEACHERS!

CASH FOR THE CLASS! & TEACHER TUESDAY!

Dibs! On Resale first opened its doors in 2012  to raise money to support Christian education in the West Michigan area.   And since we opened we have given over $130,000 to the local Christian schools.  In the last two years, we have expanded our store to include eBay and Poshmark sales.   This has given us the opportunity to give a gift directly to teachers each month!

Teachers always have a wish list!

Each month we choose two teachers to receive $100 each to purchase something from their classroom wish list.  It’s been lots of fun to surprise a teacher with this extra money.  Teachers always have a wishlist for supplies needed in the classroom.  Cash for the Class has provided books for a fifth-grade reading program, Whiteboards & markers for the Spanish classes and lots of educational tools for the classrooms.

Get to Know Our Teachers On Teacher Tuesday!

Every Tuesday on the WMCS Blog you will be introduced to one of our gifted teachers.  Take a minute to read about some beautiful people who are the heart of our schools.  DIBS! On Resale gives DIBS! Dollars to each Tuesday Teacher.  Help us create a goodie bag for Teacher Tuesday.   What can you add to show your support for our teachers?  Contact Kimberlee Mitchell with your idea  here

Something Old, Something New….

Three Generations of Wedding Dresses!

This past week I opened a large box to find three generations of Wedding Dresses!  Three very different styles from three different time periods.

 Each made special for a girl’s most special day!

The first dress is very old.  I am guessing from the 1920’s or 1930’s.  It is handmade with lots of beadwork. The dress is short with a lace trimmed slip under a loose bodice. The skirt of the dress is lace covered with hand sewn beads at the waist. The most unique part of the dress is the stole that was made to go over the dress.  It has long beaded arm loops that connect across the shoulders.  A train is attached to the arm bands and that has more beadwork. Simply beautiful!

The next dress is from late 1940’s.  It has a lace covered bodice and lace sleeves with 20 buttons down the back and more on the sleeves.  It has a lovely train.   

The third dress in the box was another short dress, possibly from the 1960’s It has a fitted bodice with pleated cap sleeves.  The skirt is overlaid with tulle and has lace medallions scatted about. This dress came with a short veil and a pair of white gloves.  A very  sweet dress to be married in.

Dresses from every decade – a fashion timeline

We have a few other dresses in the store each from a different decade. Each was beautiful and stylish on the day it was worn.

DIBS! On Resale also sells on eBay

Why do Resale Stores Sell on eBay?

Most shoppers who shop resale and thrift stores are looking for bargains.  But there are some items that just don’t fit the resale store mold or never seem to sell in the store. We want to do the best we can with the donations we are given, so last spring we signed up and were approved by eBay as an eBay for Charity non-profit. When DIBS! On Resale sells on eBay, we get  a special blue & gold ribbon identifying the listing as a charity. Once the item sells, eBay waives fees so DIBS! On Resale receives 100% of the purchase price.  Funds are processed through the PayPal Giving Fund.

Jennifer Picks Just the Right Items for eBay.

Jennifer has volunteered to handle the eBay sales for DIBS! On Resale. She is doing a great job and having a lot of fun with it.  She takes the pictures and creates the listings and once they are sold, packages them and ships them out. We have sold old books, fancy purses, and lizard skin boots but our best listing so far was a nearly new medical bag!  

 You Can Sell on eBay and Support DIBS! On Resale too!

Do you enjoy selling on eBay? Anyone who is a seller on eBay can link to our DIBS! On Resale charity when they create their listing.  Their items will show the blue & gold charity ribbon and they can choose how much of the proceeds to donate from 10% to 100%.   eBay will prorate the fees charged on the sale.  Check out the link above to see our current listings and learn more about how you can support our schools through eBay.
