Chris and Bonnie Peebles, owners of Joel’s Place, a nonprofit consignment shop, will be opening in Bellevue on Saturday, July 29th. The concept of Joel’s Place involves creating an enjoyable venue for people in the local and surrounding neighborhoods to change out and exchange their used furnishings and make a little money for their effort. Part of the money that Joel’s Place brings in from commissions will benefit worthy charities. Chris and Bonnie believe Bellevue offers a one of a kind locale where Joel’s Place will fit right in with the other unique shops.
Joel’s Place is a DBA under City On A Hill, Inc. which is a faith based 501c3 organization which has done other charitable nonprofit works in the states of Ohio, North Carolina and Delaware and the Dominican Republic. Joel’s Place is looking to donate a percentage of proceeds to nonprofit charities in the area that are endeavoring to better communities and serve others. They will make a donation quarterly. The percentage and nonprofits chosen will be determined by their Board of Directors. In order for Joel’s Place to be successful, they are hoping that Bellevue and the neighboring communities will embrace the concept of a nonprofit consignment shop.
Joel’s Place will offer a variety of upscale eclectic home furnishings and accessories, fashionable jewelry and original artwork that can be purchased at an attractive price. The shop will open on Saturday, July 29th at 11 a.m. Along with consigned items for sale, Joel’s Place will offer coffee and signature pastries created exclusively for their shop. Items for consignment will be received at the shop daily starting Saturday, July 1st from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. or you can call for an appointment at 859-227-2341 or 859-227-2789.
Chris and Bonnie suggest if you are remodeling, redecorating or cleaning out the attic or storage area and feel like it’s time to change some things, to please consider consigning your better quality possessions. They will display and promote your items in a professional manner and, in turn, you will receive a check after your item sells and you will have the satisfaction of knowing part of your purchase or consignment helps a worthy cause.
Investing in the community is very important to Chris and Bonnie. They want to become part of the community and inspire people to work together, encourage relationships with other organizations and help build a stronger community.
