Linda Osborne, owner of the new Re-Threads Consignment Shop in Taylorville, was Tuesday’s guest speaker at the weekly meeting of the Taylorville Kiwanis Club at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital Auditorium.
Osborne talked about how she opened the business and how it has expanded. She opened in October of last year at a smaller location, and moved her business to a larger location at 320 North Walnut in May of this year.
She told the Kiwanis Club that her business is the ultimate in “going green”, as she consigns pre-worn clothing, furniture, antiques and collectables. Owners of the merchandise pay her a percentage when an item sells. Items are consigned for 90 days, and that consignment arrangement can be renewed or the items can be donated to local charities.
Osborne added the most popular items so far seem to be women’s clothing.
