Long-time Wayzata resident and former kindergarten teacher Lori Lovig has a quiet passion for all things vintage. Lori and her daughter Dawn share an appreciation for vintage clothes and collectibles that have been lovingly cared for by past generations. Lori’s interest in vintage items is a perfect fit with Resale Select, where she volunteers and is in charge of the vintage area.
In earlier years, Lori donated clothing for “the little house in Wayzata.” When plans were being developed for our current location, Lori was on the founding committee to explore possibilities for a new resale store. She did her homework, visiting other successful resale stores and she understood the importance of allowing space for receiving and sorting donations. Lori lobbied hard to create a large, functional space for our resale store. In the future she hopes Resale Select can be expanded to meet the growing need for receiving, sorting and staging.
Lori thanks all the resale volunteers, especially her “co-captain” Tyra Parsons, who brings years of retail antique expertise. She is proud that Resale Select has generated over $.5 million dollars for Interfaith Outreach since 2006.
Thank you, Lori, for your vision and hard work making Resale Select a reality. You are a treasure.
