Best Resale Shop

SCHOLARSHOP

Shopping at the ScholarShop is the best of both worlds—designer finds (Chanel! Diane von Furstenberg!) at bargain prices—all for a good cause. What’s not to love? There’s upscale resale for men, women and children, including designer apparel, jewelry, handbags, shoes, scarves and collectibles. You never know what you’ll fi nd when you stop in, but one thing is for sure: Your purchase helps area students through The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis.
