There comes a day when the personal items belonging to your loved one must be relinquished. Whether you decide this time is right or circumstances force you to make decisions now, what you do about clothes, furnishings, memorabilia and other worldly possessions, also referred to as letting go of “the stuff,” is often difficult and overwhelming.

This workshop will be followed by a public showcase of select local entrepreneurs who safely and lovingly refashion your precious items into valued treasures.
