Thank you for visiting our website. Upscale Resale was established in
1995 by my mother, Vera. My parents have been blessed with the
opportunity to travel a lot, and Mom always checks out the consignment
and thrift stores anywhere they go. It was always her dream to have her
own store someday.
I worked for her along with my sister-in-law, Anita, for many years. Things could get pretty exciting since not only did Mom get to spend the day with her daughters, but also with some of her grandchildren as well. Anita and I brought our small children to work with us each day and though it was a challenge at times, we wouldn't have had it any other way.
We soon outgrew our first location and built our existing building exclusively to house Upscale Resale. In 2001, Mom decided to retire, and I took over the business. Around the same time, Anita gave birth to her third child and decided to stay home. I went from sales clerk to owner and operator, and it was time to hire some outside help. God has truly blessed me over the years with some outstanding employees. My daughter, Karlee, who has been our best sales person since she was tall enough to reach the counter, can run the store with her eyes shut. Now she is married and working as an engineer but still helps out at special sales and events. I've seen young girls graduate high school, go through college, get married, begin a career, and start their families. I think of them all as my own. We all have a strong spiritual background and are not ashamed of it.
We have a dedication to treating people fairly and recognize that our customers and consignors are a large part of our success. I hope you stop by soon and let us get to know you!
