In October of 2017 Bella’s Boutique was born. Owner, operator, mom of five, and philanthropist Georgina Opp recognized a need for help in the Greater Vernon area for families struggling to clothe their kiddos.
So what did she do?.. she took an outbuilding behind her house and turned it into a kids shopp. The inventory is her own children’s out-grown items, plus donations from the community. And the profits are used to help families in need. *insert heart explosion here*
If you’d like to learn more about Bella’s Boutique or connect with Georgina, follow her Facebook page
She welcomes your donations of gently used or new clothing, accessories and toys. Plus your purchases! So go stock up for your own family because:
a) preloved is the best! Anyone who knows me, knows that about 95% of my and Solla’s goodies are second-hand. #savetheplanet #saveyourmoney #recycle #yesiknowthesearenotrealhastags and;
b) your money works within our community!
For those of you who are not scavengers (I know you exist), just drop Georgina a message with your kid’s size and what you are looking for. It’s like having a personal shopper!
Bella’s Boutique is located near Butcher Boys and their daily drop-in hours are posted on Facebook ☝.
