PRE LOVED, NICELY PRICED CLOTHING FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY AT WELLESLEY’S OWN SHOPPER’S CORNER

Phyllis Theermann

Wellesley Green Schools’ parents found lots of treasures to share with their families this holiday season at Wellesley’s very own consignment shop, Shopper’s Corner.  The hidden gem is located around back and down a few stairs at the Schofield School. Find child and adult clothing and shoes, accessories including belts and purses, as well as sporting goods items such as skates and cleats.  The store is generally open 8:30am -12:15pm on Wednesdays and the first Saturday of each month from 9 AM – 11 AM during the school year, but check the Shopper’s Corner Facebook page for details on holiday hours, sales, and new arrivals.

Consignment shopping is far more affordable than new, offers unique items, and it lowers your carbon footprint!

Consider re-thinking the way you shop, one purchase at a time.

A Lot of energy goes into manufacturing new clothing; from transporting raw materials and producing them, to getting them to stores. A great deal of water is consumed to produce clothing, not to mention the amount of chemicals used to produce the cotton and dye the products. Buying pre-loved decreases landfill waste and helps reduce one of the most polluting industries in the world. Mass.Gov reports that in the Bay State alone, nearly a quarter-million tons of clothing, shoes & other textiles are throw away each year.  

Since 1954 Shopper’s Corner has been  generously organized by parent volunteers. Proceeds support the Schofield PTO. If you have items to donate, simply drop off bagged items at Shopper’s Corner.
