Guadalupe Resale Shop is celebrating the season by filling a section of its showroom with holiday décor.
Christmas décor includes festive tableware like plates, bowls, glasses and casserole dishes, as well as place settings, table centerpieces, shelf decorations, stuffed animals, bows, lights, angel statues, decorative pillows and even a few ugly sweaters.
“Every year, our volunteers help transform the showroom into a home for unique holiday treasures and gifts,” said Kat McNabb, store manager at Guadalupe Resale Shop. “Customers have been telling us that they don’t want the same holiday décor that their neighbors and friends bought at big box stores, and they’re finding one-of-a-kind decorations and table centerpieces here.”
McNabb also notes a trend among party-goers to bring food in a leave-behind casserole dish. When the party is over, a guest simply leaves the bowl or plate as a small gift. The party host is welcome to keep that dish or pay it forward at the next dinner party.
Proceeds from sales at Guadalupe Resale Shop support three educational programs at Guadalupe Center in Immokalee: the nationally accredited Early Childhood Education Program, After-school Tutoring & Summer Enrichment Program and college-preparatory Tutor Corps Program.
Located at 12980 Tamiami Trail North, Unit 10, in Naples, Guadalupe Resale Shop is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays through Saturdays. Donations are accepted from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Mondays through Saturdays from a curbside drop-off behind the store.
