While my moving around the local area is nothing new with my seasonal popups, this particular season has been amazing. I am so thankful for the lucky 13 years of Local Shopping. I have been so lucky to meet so many strong, inspiring, kind and generous women.
The local office at 2417 Silverside is closed for the season but for the summer all pick ups and return drop offs will be at Natural Nails on Marsh Road.
Something that is important to me is that owning ShopLuLu allows me to support the schools and organizations in our community. Shopping small is so important. We see stores closing every day. Big Stores, stores we thought would never fail. Running a retail business is nearly impossible these days. It's a sad state of the shopping world.
Beyond making financial donations to the schools and nonprofits who support us we also are a job training center for the Brandywine School District's SITE program. It is a program that helps young adults from 18 - 21 gain real life job training to gain paid employment when they leave the program. You can read more about our work with SITE Here.
I have a TON of small items, some really nice jewelry, scarves, sweaters, hats including kids furry bear hats, hair clips and when I say some, I mean TONS of it left that I just want to move on and I would love to donate to the local charities. schools and non-profit or not for profit organizations. I am making appointments for Friday and I would like to donate to as many as I can with the goal being about 100 - 300 dollars worth of merchandise to as many places as I can. I do require documentation so a form or letter will be needed either at the time of donation or afterwards.
