About AGC Boutique
AGC Boutique is a unique concept in the resale marketplace. What makes this resale “one-of-a-kind” compared to other charitable resale shops? We offer an inviting boutique feel, personal shopping and image consulting, but with affordable resale pricing! Inside, you will find an eclectic blend of women’s, men’s, teen and children’s clothing and accessories, silver/costume/trendy/handmade jewelry, collectibles, household goods, home accents, vintage, and electronics. All items are donated by the community to help the community. Centrally located in the “Bellaire Triangle” area at 5007 Bissonnet (corner S Rice & Bissonnet), Bellaire, Texas 77401.
AGC Boutique is an arm of Amazing Grace Charities, which stocks the boutique with the fantastic finds. Amazing Grace Charities is what can be called a “donation clearinghouse”. We accept donations from you, which are then sorted, graded, and distributed to the charities who can most use them, thus eliminating waste. Household linens, towels, dishes, silverware, furniture and other items, that can be used to build a home’s core needs are kept in a storage unit to give to people (referred to us) in immediate need of such items. The unusable items are recycled, and unsold items are donated to other organizations to make room for new inventory, thus making us a “green” charity, as well. The best items of clothing, collectibles, household, and home accents are kept to sell at AGC Boutique. They are sold to help to run all the aspects of both Amazing Grace Charities and the boutique, with the remainder of the profits used to help those in need of any assistance. So if you want to know where your items are going, and who you are actually helping, we are your charity!
We invite you to come by and hear the story of how this came about and check out the awesome finds that your neighbors have donated to make a difference in the community and, ultimately, the world.
AGC Boutique funds Amazing Grace Charities
AGC Boutique is the only steady form of financial help that keeps Amazing Grace Charities going. In short, it is the “fund raiser”. The revenue from AGC Boutique pays for fixed monthly expenses (building rent, insurance, taxes, electric, single employee salary, etc); any amount remaining goes into an account to help pay for unexpected needs that may come up, such as:
We can always use help with covering the cost of our storage units, where we keep various items:
- Household items to help others that have been affected by flood, fire, or simply moving into transitional living
- Campaign items that help other organizations with their needs, including:
- Community in Schools (CIS) – children’s shoes, composition books and other school supplies, puzzles, backpacks, and uniforms
- SEARCH Homeless – clothing, rolling suitcases, travel size toiletries, backpacks
- Women’s Home – clothing, toiletries, feminine hygiene products, irons, interview clothes
- Medical Bridge – walkers, diapers, crutches, and more
- H4OPE – furniture for efficiency apartments, including: dressers, loveseats, twin mattresses, etc
Without the storage space, we cannot help others. Any amount of monetary gift would help us with this month-to-month expense.
There are times where we need to rent a truck or van to get items picked up from donors or to deliver to those in need.
Because of this, all monetary gifts are a blessing and truly help us to continue what we do in our community. AGC Boutique needs great items – and visitors to “Shop for a Cause” to continue to operate.
