The STARability Foundation’s newest endeavor, the STAR Store: Upscale Resale & Stellar Art, is now open in the Naples Design District! Thank you to all who helped make our grand opening on Oct. 19, 2019, such a success!
About the STAR Store
STARability opened the STAR Store on Aug. 1, 2019, to support its mission to shine light on ability, not disability. In addition to benefiting STARability through the resale of upscale furniture, décor and other home goods, the STAR Store intentionally provides a nurturing environment where more than 30 STARability participants receive vocational training. Each week, groups of participants rotate through the store, preparing it for customers and creating unique décor products for sale in the store’s STAR*Made Studio. The participants are able to walk away from their time at the STAR Store with a sense of achievement, confidence and contribution to their community.
STARability is thrilled to have its first brick-and-mortar location where the community can meet and interact with its members. We hope you’ll visit the store to see their star power for yourselves!
STAR Store Director: Carrie Jo Terry
Volunteers: Trailblazer Academy, Patty Rodriguez, Logan Rodriguez
How You Can Help
The STAR Store welcomes your donations of gently used, upscale, quality furniture and household items. We also welcome volunteers to assist our participants with their work in the store and in the STAR*Made Studio. In addition, we appreciatively accept funds here to help replenish ongoing supplies and other items for the store.
