If you’re looking to do some early holiday shopping, consider stopping by P.S. It’s Used, a new consignment shop that opened its doors on Monday.
Owners Sallie Culley and Pat Webb have been friends for more than seven years, and decided on opening the store together in an attempt to get rid of extra storage items.
“I had a 10 by 12 storage building next to my house and it was full,” Webb said.
“We were going to flea markets and selling things from the building,” Culley added.
The result was a spot in Rockingham, located at 637 B on East Broad Avenue, where the two will sell and consign specialized items like glassware, antiques and other household items.
“We’ve got a little bit of everything,” Webb said. “Old, new, antique, vintage. I’ve been collecting crystal for 40 years and it’s now on display in the front.”
Culley and Webb said they plan to hold a grand opening on Oct. 5 and 6, where they will be giving away hot dogs, soda and door prizes donated by area businesses.
“In three weeks we put this place together,” Culley said, “and we had lots of help … We’re going to start small and end up big. We’ve done this because of the job situation in Richmond County. People can’t go out and spend lots of money, so they can come here and buy inexpensive things for nice prices.”
P.S. It’s Used is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
