The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition is very pleased to announce that its resale shop, Great Stuff Savvy Resale, was named “Best Resale Shop” by Delaware Today Magazine in their annual “Best of Delaware” issue. The resale shop opened in October of 2010 and is located in North Wilmington in the Talleyville Center on Concord Pike.
“We are so thrilled to receive this honor,” said general manager Dale Maahs. “We’ve only been in business for just shy of two years and the support that we have received is phenomenal.” Maahs is joined by her assistant manager Trish Tompkins and over 50 volunteers who work in the shop. “The volunteers at Great Stuff are the best. They are such an important piece of the success of the shop. They provide excellent customer service and help with tasks like window displays, tagging items, merchandising, and more. They are such a strong team.” Many Great Stuff volunteers are breast cancer survivors themselves and often lend a compassionate ear to those somehow impacted by breast cancer.

A few members of the Great Stuff team attended the Best of Delaware Party on July 26 at Dover Downs where they joined some of the best businesses in Delaware. This event provided Great Stuff with an opportunity to introduce new people to the resale shop and let them know how they can help. “We are always looking for donations of gently used upscale clothing, handbags and accessories, footwear, home accents and furniture,” said Maahs.

By donating items or shopping at Great Stuff, you can make an impact on the local fight against breast cancer. “All of our net proceeds benefit DBCC’s local programs and services. Everything stays right here in the community.” Last year, Great Stuff presented DBCC with a check for $40,000 in its first year of business.

The resale shop has also started a fun private shopping experience, Sip & Shops. Great Stuff hosts these events either after regular shop hours or during the lunch hour. A host will invite her friends to attend a fun private shopping event. Great Stuff provides some light fare and refreshments and volunteers who can help attendees put together great outfits. Recently, Great Stuff held Sip & Shop events with the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce, the Mamie Warren Senior Center and Chase Manhattan Bank. The staff at Great Stuff will help you to plan your private, exclusive shopping event. If you are interested in hosting a Sip & Shop, click here for more information.
Great Stuff is now transitioning from summer to fall clothing and the shop is now accepting fall donations. For more information about Great Stuff, please visit www.greatstuffresale.com.
