Local Business: Renew Thrift

I am going to try to do better with posting about local businesses that I frequent or find out about or want to share just for fun.  I found a great one!

It is called Renew Boutique and it is a thrift store that benefits homeless women and children at Acres of Hope.  They specialize in gently used women's, children's, accesories and home decor.  You can get on their email list and be alerted for special sales they have.  All the ladies that work there do so on volunteer basis and the shop operates as a not-for-profit vendor. 

It was really surprised at how well curated and displayed and organized the shop was.  The selection was great. The staff was knowledgable of vintage and some of the designer pieces that were in the shop.  I also did not notice anything over $20!


 The shop does not have a website, but you can find them in Old Roseville at 201 Walnut Street open Monday through Saturday 10-5!

I purchased 4 things the day we stopped in... three of the things were off of the $2 rack!!!  This fabulous vintage blouse is one of my fave vintage things I have gotten in a long time!







I wore this outfit for my walkabout in Old Sacramento with my family last week. I love the color palette of this blouse and even though it is up to my throat it is still sexy because of the sheerness of it... super into subtle sexy lately. 

What I wore:
Vintage silk blouse fromm Renew Boutique.  Jeans from Target.  Boots from a shop in Germany.  Steve Madden satchel.  F21 Coat.  Sunnies from Goodwill.

I really hope all my Sactown ladies will head over to Renew for some good finds and to help out a great cause!  You will not be disappointed with your experience there!

  1. That blouse is lovely!!!!!!! I always get tempted w/ those beautiful vintage blouses but never purchase since I think it will be just one of those things I buy just b/c it's $2 and never wear. It fits you perfect!! I think I'll have to go back and find one now that I like and try it out. Love it!
