DIBS! GRAND OPENING: WMCS Prayer Blessing & Ribbon Cutting Event on Jan 17th at noon

DIBS! On Resale” Moved to 1279 E Apple Ave

The first time I walked into our new building I couldn’t even see the walls. The building was being used as an office furniture sales and storage building.  It was wall to wall, floor to ceiling office furniture!  Once that was all removed we could see the potential.  The first thing we needed was a new fire suppression system.  Next, we brought in shelving to divide the working rooms from the showroom, build two dressing rooms and hooked up the speaker system.

Finally. It’s moving day, or maybe I should say moving weeks.   We had many volunteers come in to help pack up the Harvey St store and move everything to the Apple Ave. store.  The whole time we kept both stores open for business.  I was most impressed with the amount of stuff the little yellow delivery truck holds! And with the enclosed trailer that came to move all the racks of clothing!

I feel truly blessed with so many volunteers who came to support this major undertaking!  We have been welcomed into a neighborhood with new customers and familiar faces.  Everyone is so excited and grateful for a store like ours to open in their neighborhood. And I am really glad the snow held off while all this was happening!

I am very excited to share with you the NEW DIBS! On Resale.

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.

Donate this month and PayPal will add 1%

Charity donations to Dibs! On Resale can be made through the PayPal Giving Fund at this link  From November 28 to December 31, PayPal for Giving will add 1% to your donation!  All proceeds from this donation will go right to the schools!

Shop at DIBS! On Resale during the month of December and enter our weekly gift certificate drawing!
