Boutique Spotlight: The Drake Closet

The Drake House is a housing program for homeless mothers with children in the North Fulton County of Georgia. It was established in 2004 and has been a big part of the Roswell community. The Drake House empowers women and offers "a variety of support services to assist them in reaching self-sufficiency."

The Drake Closet is a non-profit boutique that sells a variety of gently used donated clothing, shoes, and accessories, with all its sale proceeds going towards The Drake House. Don't let the donated items fool you, this place is chic and elegant and not just a consignment store. It provides women in the community with stylish and affordable fashion, everything a fashionista could want. 

The Closet just celebrated its one year anniversary and is growing everyday with the help of the community, volunteers and fashionistas alike. Volunteers work in the closet and if you live in or near the Atlanta area you can too (find out more information here). 

This holiday season, shop for a great cause without breaking the bank, your closet and your wallet will thank you!

  1. Love hearing about great fashion causes like this one, somethings we get so consumed by consumerism and materialism that we forget about charities like this one.

  2. This is really nice! I love the organization and how it helps those in need. We have a Dress for Success program here but it's nothing like this.
