On Dec. 03rd, 2015 the Brandywine Consignment Shop officially reopened after extensive renovations and expansion.
The shop, affectionately known as” the Little Yellow House” celebrated the reopening of the shop with a ribbon cutting ceremony. “It is wonderful to see the dreams of so many become a reality here tonight,” said Dawn James, chair of the Brandywine Health Foundation. “The word is out about this ‘little gem,’ and we feel very confident that the annual donations from the shop to the Brandywine Health Foundation will eventually double, “said James
James recognized some of the other people who were involved in making the project happen: contractor Jeff Speaker of Speaker Construction; engineer Dave Beideman of Beideman Associates; architect Todd Kentzel of Architetra P.C; landscaper Terry Souders and Lew Larson, who volunteered as project manager and Nancy Oliver, Shop Manager
The shop has grown in many ways. Primarily a volunteer based organization, the number of volunteers has grown to more than 60 hardworking dedicated individuals! The shop serves 100’s of consignors each week.
“We’re thrilled with the new space,” said Nancy Oliver, shop manager for over 10 years. “Sure it means more space for donated items and our cosigners’ goods and therefore more opportunity for shoppers to find ‘that special, unique item they just can’t live without.
But, we’re doing much more than that. The expanded space will increasing our bottom line and our ability to support affordable healthcare for the community.”
“The shop is bigger, but we are still, simply put: “the little yellow house with a big mission!” said Oliver
All proceeds benefit the Brandywine Health Foundation
