Sherry G. and Carrie B., two smart and very HOT women, created Shopaholic.
They had an idea about having the perfect jobs, retiring early and giving
other shopaholics like them a chance to feed their addiction and stop
global warming. They basically wanted to save the world….and bring the
golden retriever to work with them.
“We believe, that as shopaholics, we really don’t need anything. We just
enjoy the hunt. So our place is really just an outlet for the Universal Craving
of something NEW. Even if someone else owned it first.
We can buy things we didn’t even know we wanted. Stuff we didn’t know we
needed. Products we can’t live another day without. We can do all of this
knowing that we are truly impacting our world in a positive way.
Here’s the DEAL:
We believe, that humans have reached an all time high with shopaholism.
The result of our gratification-at- any-price behavior has been huge trade
deficits with other countries; increased waste products polluting the
environment; and most concerning we think, is the dampening of our
entrepreneurial spirit by large chains of discount warehouses who make
the marketplace nearly impossible to compete in. In many cases actually
violating the human rights of their employees.
This is NOT just a theory. Our worlds’ growing dependence on cheaply
manufactured goods is literally causing these economic and moral issues
every moment of every day.
We know it’s hard to see the forest for he trees but we’d all like to hug a few
A one-stop shop for specialty resale, image styling and serving your
Shopaholic is a convenient way to contribute to the betterment of society.
We pick up your excess. Call us when you finally clean out that closet and
we will take it off your hands that day! (Clean closet, clear mind.)
Shopping should be about the experience. No self-respecting addict would
be caught digging through piles of someone else’ s throw-a ways. We do
that for you. (Self- respect is relative.)
Get a whole new look, expert image consulting and have a good time
hanging out with your new best friends! Having fun is not negotiable for us,
and being “green” is totally cool. It’s just the right thing to be. (It’s eco-chic
What’s in it for me?
As an admitted Shopaholic you will be in the “loop” as we say about fashion
trends, hair and make-up techniques and current “gotta have it goodies.”
Your friends will covet your one-of-a-kind finds…and you can feel proud of
your bargain shopping…you are living authentically after all.
Most importantly, you will contribute to Shopaholics’ causes in our
community and the World. We contribute a portion of every sale to the
Alliance For A New Humanity
An organization that supports the efforts of human beings who are
contributing to the creation of a just, peaceful and sustainable world. A
collective conscious if you will.
Our local beneficiaries are:
The American Cancer Society
The Human Rights Campaign
Shopaholics’ Big Picture
The first Shopaholic location is the Mamma-ship. We will continue to grow
our concept to include maternity, baby stuff, men’s wear and home
furnishings. Of course we will offer hair styling, make-up and various other
services, plus some “ got to have in my bathroom” personal care products.
We addicts sometimes just need the thrill of having something no one else
has…so Shopaholic will mix a few exclusive new items along with our
signature C&S BRAND of “eco-chic”pieces. (We wouldn’t want you to evolve
too quickly…balance is the key to everything!
Fellowship has its privileges!
In store events:
Closet Swap Quarterly: Basically we get together, swap a few things that
didn’t pan out from our closets and have fun in the process…. free, new stuff!
The Red Carpet Society: Award Show fashion dissing. What else?
Fashion Interventions: Your peers get a chance to help you with your look.
We tell you what’s working, what’s not and give you the tools to fix it!
Finally, Shopaholic wants you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE in your
addiction! We have it too. We understand how a simple little retail “fix” can
change your whole attitude…. and that’s what we want. To change people’s
attitudes …toward each other and the world.”
