Shoppe 3130

clovis flowers 010 This is a thrift shop for women only. Located in an on old lovely building at 1126 Broad St. in Augusta ,Georgia. The cool aspect is it is operated like a boutique. There are antique furnishings and displays. The folding table is made from an old door similar to those in our old house.

Your purchase is wrapped in two contrasting colors of tissue. Then placed in a chic brown bag with twine handles and tied with ribbon. I think this makes the buyer feel special. Even when buying a three dollar shirt! They also sell vintage clothes but for much higher prices.

The name of the store is from Proverbs 31:30 “Charm is deceptive and beauty is vain but a woman who fears the Lord shall be praised.”

With the word fears being translated respects in many newer translations. This charity has bible studies and also trains women who are jobless and assists them with interviews by providing them with two suits. I have started donating all of my clothes to this shop.

One part of Proverbs 31 causes me a giggle. The Dear Lord knows me by now. Quirky. It's verse fourteen where the wife feeds her servant girls. I, for the life of me, cannot find my servant girls.

grace surrounds us



  1. What a wonderful venture this shop sounds like, great place to shop. I like the idea of making each person feel special. And yeah, I know God has a sense of humor, there's no way I could handle the Proverbs woman's schedule. The dying of the linen would be enough for me.
    Have a wonderful weekend, loved the squirrel/neighbor post!

  2. Hello! I left a comment earlier and then lost internet before it went through. So, I'm back. I love how this charity elevates all purchases made by wrapping them simply, but beautifully. Doesn't everyone deserve to feel like their purchases are a gift? This organization sounds a bit like one that I volunteer for, although we are helping more men than women, helping un and under-employed people get jobs that pay a living wage. Many of them are felons who are turning their lives around. I do mock interviews before they go out for the real thing! I get back so much more than I give. I am now going to read Proverbs 31 and find all of the nuances that you suggest. Have a weekend of fun and rest!

  3. Ahhh, I see that two of my favorite gals have already left comments! :-)

    This is just an amazing idea for a shop, I think it would be wonderful to have branches all over the country.

    And don't feel bad, my servant girls have turned up missing, too!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. It is the little details that count and make such a huge difference!

  5. What a great-sounding shop!

    As for Proverbs 31 - Verse 15 - "She gets up while it is still dark..."
    I'm afraid that's a really tough one for me.


I adore your comments. They are like finding unexpected chocolates. olive
