The Hospice Shoppe
An Upscale Resale Experience

Visit our 4,000 square foot upscale boutique and see what’s new each week. Savvy shoppers will find one-of-a-kind clothing and décor items at the best prices in town!

100% of the proceeds fund care at Bobby’s Hospice, our community palliative care facility that cares for over 170 people each year who need in-patient palliative care and grief support. Some of these people are your neighbors, friends and perhaps even family members.

Thank You for helping us to help others.
