Established in 2009, Shop Fresh Threads offers gently used apparel, jewelry, shoes and home furnishings. After 5+ years as a typical brick and mortar retail with a small online presence, owner Juli Halifax flipped the business model and now operates largely online, with limited hours available at their warehouse in Clearwater.
From their application for Most Community-Minded Business:
"Our motto has always been to 'consign for a cause.' [and we] host up to four charitable events per year, donating funds, handbags and other merchandise to these causes. ... My business model has changed throughout the years to fit my family life. My family does not revolve around my business. I believe that family and faith comes first and business second. I believe that helping others should be practiced as often as possible and to do it wholeheartedly and without expectation."
Fresh Threads can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and shopfreshthreads.com.
