SOUL Incorporated Charity Shop’s 1st Birthday!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

One year ago, our Charity Shop, SOUL Incorporated, opened its doors to the public.  Gradually over the year, more and more people have heard about us and we have been slowly getting busier and more known.

We specialise in re-purposing donated furniture, and over the last year we have learned new re-purposing skills and techniques and have created some beautiful, unique pieces.  We specialise in Hampton’s, French Country, Coastal, Farmhouse styles.

We have an amazing team of volunteers who donate their time and incredible skills with the re-purposing of furniture; painting, carpentry, sewing etc and running & staging the shop, and without these generous people, we couldn’t do the work that we do.

We accept donations for the shop of furniture – especially wooden furniture, as well as ornaments and the items listed above.  If you have something you wish to donate, please text a picture of the item to 0450 947 751 and we will let you know whether it is suitable.
