The small town Montesano Washington has only two choices for purchasing clothing for their children. Drive 30-45 minutes for brand new or drive 10-15 minutes for used clothing at a very expensive price for not even good clothing.
Middle of July we opened a small resale clothing store called Juicey Caboosey ( www.juiceycaboosey.wix.com/fashion
). Juicey Caboosey sells kids & teen fashion at a VERY affordable price. Everything in the store is under $10 and most items are $2-5. We inspect every article of clothing to make sure it is in GREAT like new condition before we ever put it on our racks. BEST PART...we donate 5-10% of our monthly proceeds back to the school throughout the school year and offer it as a fundraiser throughout the summer.
We have discovered there is a HUGE need for this store including a need for adult/maternity clothing as well. However we cannot keep the inventory high, we cannot afford to get the word out via marketing and we need a larger location to offer all ages to this amazing town that has blessed our lives already after only living here for 5 months!
We would like to use this money to purchase
* A Tagging system so I don't have to tag the items nightly taking 3 hours away from my family and it would also keep a running inventory of what we have so we don't run out of what the town needs
* Deposits for buildings
* Radio ad to get the word out to residents and local residents of the store
* Newspaper ad
* Clothing inventory
* First months bills
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. We pray an answer will be laid on your heart to help us with our dream of bringing something BIG to a small town!!
