Stout Resources, LLC founded by Jennifer Wherry after visiting Goodwill in September of 2013 for Halloween costume pieces for her children. While at Goodwill, she happened upon Christmas Themed items that needed a second life. She took the knick-knack and went to the basket isle of the thrift store and the business model took form, “Repurposing and Upselling by Design”. Fittingly, the Company name is after the Wherry’s family pet, a Chocolate Labrador Retriever named Stout that joined the angels in December 2011.
Jennifer then contacted her friend and Aunt Susan Ritz to collude on a finished product. Thankfully, Susie agreed because Jennifer is good at shopping but wrapping baskets was a whole other ballgame. In agreement, their debut on home turf, the annual Nativity Women’s Guild Craft Fair on November 9-10, 2013.
Each uniquely crafted gift basket includes at least one item purchased from Goodwill or ARC Thrift Stores. These items carefully matched with “new” items creating a theme basket. Our specialty is matching themes with bottles of wine in the same theme. The result is a one-of-a-kind basket individualized to the theme. Several baskets of the same theme may occur but not one will be identical.
Purchasing through Stout Resources, LLC benefits the programs at Goodwill and ARC Thrift Stores through the direct purchasing of their products.
