Along with the benefit of helping others in need, shopping at our ReSale Connection gives new meaning to "Shop to your heart's content." Customers not only can find great treasures, but can find comfort in knowing that their purchase of a sweater or donation of home goods may provide a child for the first time a new warm coat or weekly tutoring session.
Our ReSale shop features a wide variety of styles and selection of women's clothing/accessories, Home & Décor items and furniture. Also offered is consignment of women's clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry and Home & Décor.
In downtown Rochester since 2000, ReSale Connection is Assistance League's nonprofit, upscale resale store offering high quality, new and gently used merchandise at a great value.
