The Church Mouse has become a local inside tip. Where to give and where to get the best furnishings and décor, clothing and accessories.
The Church Mouse approach has rung so true for so many that the money raised from the sale of the items people donate is approaching $3 million.
The Church Mouse put in play a different business model as an alternative to consignment shops, when volunteers from among the members of a church here on Hilton Head Island started the shop nearly 20 years ago as a charitable endeavor.
From the beginning, the volunteers who started The Church Mouse were intent on making it easy for Hilton Head Island visitors and residents to do the right thing.
You have the advantage of options when you consider whether consignment stores are the way to say goodbye to the things you no longer need.
From the moment we come through the door we are surrounded by an abundance of blessings. Gorgeous furniture and furnishings, arranged against a tall tapestry of light, give the feeling we have stepped into a friend’s home, rather than a thrift store.
. Long recognized as feeling more like visiting the home of a friend than a thrift store, The Church Mouse has worked long and hard to offer a different kind of experience.
From St. Francis Thrift Shop, our colleague on the north of the Island, we draw inspiration, encouragement, and lessons on at least two levels: The lessons of the Thrift Shop and lessons from the life of St. Francis.
Goodwill outlets have one of those brand names that fit a product or service so perfectly that they become the generic term for it.
Our gratitude for donors, volunteers, and customers is at an all-time high. Everything about The Church Mouse seems more clearly focused than ever, including our thanks.
