The Secondhand Shopaholic’s Shopping Guide: Revente (South Carolina)

This week’s Secondhand Shopping Guide interview is with Debbie, owner of Revente, a consignment shop in South Carolina. My mom has actually known Debbie through NARTS for many years now, so I’m excited to be spotlighting a familiar name. I really enjoyed looking through the photos on Revente’s Facebook page (this picture/quote is funny…and so true!), so now I need an excuse to travel to South Carolina! :D Read on to learn more about this store.
