Called Re-Store, a brain child of Devyani Trivedi, 40, a Whitefield Rising (WR) volunteer, the store sells second-hand items like women’s, men’s and children’s clothes, showcase articles, toys, board games, footwear, books and other miscellaneous items that are donated by people and are in good condition.
In partnership with Whitefield Rising, Trivedi opened Re-Store on April 14. Her daughter Anvita (11) and she go about collecting donated items from urban homes. While unusable ones are discarded, others are sorted according to the category. Faulty ones are mended before they go into the store.
Prices start from Rs 5 for small trinkets and can go up to Rs 300, for clothes, footwear, and games. According to Trivedi, the most fast-selling is the Rs 5 range, thanks to children. Besides that, clothes and artefacts move fast too.
Trivedi is also in talks with Saahas Zero Waste, hoping to set up an E-waste bin at the store.
