Shine Bright Like Kathy 150 150 Habitat for Humanity

Shine Bright Like Kathy

 

Kathy shines bright like a diamond, and so does the jewelry boutique she created in the ReStore! Kathy started by downsizing her own collection and donating her rarely worn pieces to the ReStore; seeing the speed that they sold, she started soliciting her friends and neighbors for their necklaces, bracelets, and rings. Taking time twice a week to polish and tag her new stock, she artfully drapes them on her displays, frequently selling pendants and bangles seconds after being placed on the shelves. Kathy brings sparkle to the ReStore and to our customers who enjoy their new jewels. Thank you, Kathy— you help us enjoy the finer things in life!
