Because it’s FUN!
We love to see what you bring to us! It’s like Christmas every day in our back room. Our inventory changes daily, it’s never the same store twice. We stage the store at least twice a week, so your items get moved around and seen in a new way.
Because we strive to be inspirational, creative, compassionate and savvy!
Our prices are fair, and considerably lower than retail. Older furniture is made in the USA, and the quality is often much better than new furniture. Shopping consignment keeps items from going to the landfill, and extends the life of the piece! You also have more $ to spend in other areas of your life because of the savings you will realize when you become a savvy consignment shopper!
Because of our location and recent expansion!
Our premier Frankfort location results in a constant flow of walk-in and drive-by traffic generated by neighboring businesses.
Because of our Experience!
Since 2009, we have sold thousands of items, and our staff retention is amazing. Therefore, not only do we have a robust, historical pricing database, our staff has become well versed in what the market value is currently for most items. Staff is also aware of current trends in fashion and design, and are able to help with finding just the right items. We have a home stylist on staff, along with a few fashion specialists. We also have staff who are experts in using our Farmhouse Paint products.
Because of our Charitable Giving!
Each year we have found areas in which to give back to the community at large. Early on we supported a Christian Boarding School for troubled teens. We have donated to Love Inc. and helped a single mom furnish her apartment so her daughter could stay with her. We hosted our first Fashion Show to benefit Lincolnway Special Recreation Association, and plan this to be an annual event. Evilena’s hosted a second annual Garden Walk in the community, which benefited the Conservation Foundation. Each month we donate items to The Teen Bridge Center in Orland Park, which services the Lincolnway area as well. Each month we donate items to Nearly New Resale, which benefits the Bobby Noonan Schools. We also have Bibles available for anyone to take for free, and a prayer corner to take or leave a prayer.
Because of the marketing we do for you!
Multi-layered marketing approach. Ongoing advertising in local newspapers, social media such as Facebook and Instagram along with email marketing brings constant exposure and customers to the store. We also host a variety of classes and events at the store to bring inspiration, education, fun and fellowship to the community.
