Shop for good. Donate for good. Volunteer for good.

It has been two years in the planning and we are excited to announce that our new upscale resale shop, the LACASA Collection, took flight and opened its doors for a soft launch on Aug. 14, 2017. 

During the soft opening, we invite shoppers to come in and explore the store, browse our selections, and give us suggestions on how we can improve the shopping experience for our customers and the community.

Our official grand opening will be held the weekend after Labor Day (see dates and times below). We’ll have three full days of raffles, pop-up drawings, prizes and refreshments.

Grand Opening: Donate Halloween Items & Get Great Discounts

Join our Howell-o-ween Donation Drive! Grand opening guests are invited to donate a new or nearly-new Halloween costume for a child or adult and receive a 25% discount on general merchandise and/or a 10% discount on furniture.

Plus, people who bring in a donation will be entered in special raffles and give-away drawings.

We will begin offering Halloween costume items and decorations in the store on Oct. 1, 2017.

Making Store Donations: Help ‘Stock the Shop’

We are now taking donations at the store (see schedule below). Our “Stock the Shop” Donation Drive is going on now. Donations can be dropped off at the back entrance of the store. Please ring the bell. A tax receipt will be provided at the time of donation. 

All proceeds from the LACASA Collection will help sustain the work of LACASA Center, which provides critical services for victims of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault. LACASA also spearheads education and awareness programs throughout Livingston County to help prevent abuse and keep our community safer.

Work at the Store: Volunteer for Us!

If you’d like to make a difference, consider volunteering for us in the store. Scheduling is flexible and you can work up front or behind the scenes.
