NAPLES, Fla. - Floridant -- Guadalupe Resale Shop recognized a milestone sale after a shopper's purchase of an oil painting on June 9 pushed the boutique above $1 million in gross sales revenue for its fiscal year.

This is the first time the Resale Shop, located on U.S. 41 in North Naples, has reached that threshold during a fiscal year. Proceeds support Guadalupe Center, a nonprofit that provides life-changing educational opportunities to children and teens in Immokalee.

"We often talk about making a million dreams come true for students and families, and the Resale Shop's million-dollar success will undoubtedly help us reach that goal," said Guadalupe Center President Dawn Montecalvo.

Guadalupe Center serves more than 1,750 students annually through three educational programs: the nationally accredited Early Childhood Education Program, After-school Tutoring & Summer Enrichment Program and college-preparatory Tutor Corps Program. The nonprofit relies on philanthropic support to carry out its mission, along with proceeds from the Resale Shop.

The milestone purchase was made by Patricia Lenhardt, a Bonita Springs resident who stops by the Resale Shop each week to browse new arrivals in the showroom. A self-described art collector, Lenhardt often drops off donations before starting a new search for unique artwork and home décor.

The Resale Shop sells like-new furniture, home décor, kitchenware, artwork, lamps, linens, DVDs and CDs, books and all types of ladies' and men's clothing, including accessories such as jewelry, purses and nearly new shoes. All items are donated by local residents and businesses.

"Reaching $1 million in sales revenue is certainly a milestone worth celebrating, but the true celebration is seeing the impact that all of these sales are having on students and families," store manager, Kat McNabb said.

The Resale Shop's interior is filled with brochures and photos of Guadalupe Center students. Teens in the Tutor Corps Program often volunteer when school is not in session, further connecting the dots between Guadalupe Resale Shop and Guadalupe Center.

Guadalupe Resale Shop is located at 12980 Tamiami Trail North, Unit 10, in North Naples.
