The ReUse Emporium was started in May, 2012 as a way to help the community recycle items that still have life in order to reduce the footprint in our landfill. SO many people either give or THROW (horrors!) STUFF away instead of making $ for their STUFF. What started in a 1,000sf container facility in Bulk Storage in Bovoni has now grown into 5,000+sf of beautiful warehouse space. The Team has grown again to help RePurpose-ReDesign-ReCycle by adding a Upholstery and Refinishing Shop on premises. You may choose colors, finishes (limited) fabric choices to renew any piece of furniture. You may also bring your own pieces to have them revamped!
How do we help? If you have “STUFF” and don’t want to go through the hassle of having or going to a Yard Sale, Craig’s List or Facebook to sell it or you are a business and don’t want to liquidate in your store, call on ReUse Emporium to sell it for you! The store provides a way that takes the time, privacy, expense, and stress that you as the Consignor would have to go through otherwise. They sell it, you get paid. It’s that simple! The store has been embraced by the community of Residents, Businesses, Realtors, Decorators, and many other segments of the USVI as well as the BVI and Puerto Rico. They give you an outlet housed with a friendly and knowledgeable team who LOVE what they do who will market and sell your stuff! The store is considered St Thomas’s largest perpetual Yard Sale! It’s clientele knows to “buy when you see it”, as stuff comes in daily and moves VERY quickly. Items are only housed for 60 days until the price starts to drop, then after 100 days (if it makes it that long), they are donated to a local nonprofit or Island Hero’s who are compassionate about giving back.. It is no longer a secret and now those “in the know” shop ReUse Emporium weekly (sometimes daily) and KNOW the store truly is the best option before the landfill!!
Come see for yourself or shop or site to see what MANY already know. You will quickly learn to bring something in to Consign, Donate on behalf of your favorite non profit, ReDesign or RePurpose. Join in on the revolution to educate our Island to ReUse!!
