The Unique Boutique


The Giving Back Project - Donations from our Community

       Located at the front of the centre, the Unique Boutique Gift Shop at the Strathcona Place Society offers a wide array of quality home-made items. Our gift shop is supported by year-round donations from the community as well as by centre members partaking in programs such as woodworking, sewing, jewellery design, and pottery. These donations and quality hand-made items are sold back to the community at affordable prices, so that we can "give back" to the community. Proceeds from these sales support our organization and go towards keeping prices for memberships, events, programs, and services low. Through this cycle of giving, the Strathcona Place Society is able to better the lives of seniors and the community as a whole.

      We take a variety of non-textile items, provided they are still in fair, usable condition. The Boutique offers thanks to our generous donors of quality handmade items in Strathcona Place Society's sewing and woodworking groups, as well as to volunteers from The Books, White Elephant/Odds and Sods Ladies, front desk, and others who help keep our shelves tidy and updated.
