Time to Change

School has started and it is time to change

I will admit it,  I am reluctant to let summer go this year, but school has started and it is time to change.  Time to put away shorts and bring out sweaters.

We sort twice and put out the nicest items for our customers.

We have a great team at DIBS! On Resale who makes the switch happen.   All the clothing that comes into the store is sorted twice.  First Volunteers check buttons and zippers and look for stains and rips.  Next, each department goes through it again choosing the best clothing to put on hangers.  Every week new clothing is put out and for the last few weeks Fall clothing has been coming out of storage.  Beautiful sweaters, dresses, shirts and more.  Laura, Jennifer, Marie and Sadie along with many others keep the the racks fresh & full.

We carry clothing for everyone!

Men’s shirts are always a great buy and they are like new!  Infant clothing is just 99c! We carry maternity and Plus sizes as well as formal wear.  Stop in and check out the great selection at DIBS! On Resale.

 

Profits from DIBS! On Resale benefit students at our local PK-12 West Michigan Christian Schools (WMCS) including Muskegon Christian (PK-6), Grand Haven Christian (PK-8), New Era Christian (PK-8) and Western Michigan Christian (7-12).

TIME FOR A SHOP HOP!

DIBS! On Resale opened it’s doors to serve the community.  We offer a place to donate clothing, furniture and household goods and turn that into support for our schools.  We also have sister stores that do the same for their school community.

Let’s Plan A Road Trip!

First Stop Once & Again

Starting in Grand Haven, MI stop in at Once & Again.  Once & Again opened their doors in 2005 and have just had a Grand Opening at their new location on 1209  Jackson Street.  Rhonda Thom is the manager of the store and along with her volunteers they keep the store stocked with wonderful treasures and unique finds.   The sign above the door states their purpose.

“Your donations and purchases help reduce tuition costs of Grand Haven Christian School Thank you!”

The next stop is  DIBS! On Resale

Last stop is THE NEST.

The NEST is  located in Downtown Fremont, MI at 1 East Main St.  They have been in business for the past 5 years and have just opened at this new address a few doors down from the original location.  This is a beautiful corner store with more space to display the wonderful treasures that are donated.  Tresa Sturrus, Carol Dunning and Dee DeKryger serve as the board for managing the store.  Proceeds from  The NEST go to defray the cost of education for the parents at Fremont Christian Schools.

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.
