The Cheeps Boutique's Press Release

Tallahassee, FL - The Cheeps Boutique, an annual fundraiser for the Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary, is looking for donations. The Cheeps Boutique is a massive resale extravaganza.

This year's sale will take place September 14th and 15th, 8am-5pm both days, at 1660-12 North Monroe St. in the Lake Ella Plaza. The storefront is in the building to the south of the Publix, right next door to Johnny Ringo's. Harrison Commercial Properties has graciously donated the 9000sq ft space for the occasion.

Shelby Bush, organizer of the Cheeps Boutique, went into detail on the sale. "It's a week-end long indoor thrift store set up, so it will take place rain or shine. As for what donations we're looking for, we'll take just about anything. We accept all sorts of furniture, clothes, toys, pet items, household goods, tchotchkes, and anything in between.

We start collecting from students, in particular, in mid-summer before move-outs when so many useable items end up on the curbs and are destroyed by summer rains, but accept any donations up until the days of the sale. We help 'green the streets' to raise a little 'green' for our injured, orphaned and displaced green space inhabitants"

Rather than throwing away or storing useable but unwanted items, simply donate them to the Cheeps Boutique. All donations are tax deductible, and all proceeds go to the Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary. Funds are used to improve the quality of life for sick, displaced and injured native wildlife.

To arrange to drop off or have items picked up, or to volunteer your time, please contact Shelby Bush at . For more information, visit .
