The resale shop, which offers boutique quality clothing, equipment and home decor, posted to social media that it was created to serve families in the community and that its goal was “always to love, serve and bless” those customers and to help the less fortunate through donations to Matthew 25: Ministries.

However, “the convenience of online shopping has completely changed the dynamic of running our store,” the Facebook post said. “We have wrestled with having enough time for our family vs time for the store, as this was no longer in balance. We looked at downsizing our store front and/or selling our store, but all possibilities fell through.”

The business is selling the majority of its inventory at 35 percent off. For more information, visit
