Consignment shop donates to Lupus Foundation
PITMAN, N.J. - July 19, 2010 (WPVI) -- Treasures on Broadway isn't a show in New York. It's a consignment store on the main shopping street in Pitman, New Jersey.
The "treasures" are gently-used women's clothes, including an Oscar de la Renta denim outift for $44.25, a Tina Turk dress for $65, and an Ann Taylor Loft dress for $24.25.
A number of the consigned items are new with tags, including a Carole Little plus-size top for $14, a Calvin Klein cocktail dress for $51.50, and an Ann Taylor loft dress with a $99 tag for $37.75.
Former nurse Theresa LaMonaca opened the store after battling Lupus.
"Since I am in remission, I feel the need to give back," LaMonaca says. "When people donate their clothing after the consignment is through, we sell the clothing and whatever we get, we donate to the Lupus Foundation."
The store also sells bracelets made by Philadelphia jeweler Margie Cedrone, with proceeds going to the charity.
"It's wonderful that Theresa is interested in raising awareness of Lupus and raising funds to support the Lupus Foundation of America," says Annette Myarick, who is CEO of the Philadelphia/Tri-State chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America.
Savings on most items are 50-70% off retail. The store splits sales 50/50 with consigners. Appointments for consignments are requested.
Treasures on Broadway is located at 50 South Broadway in Pitman, New Jersey. You can call them at 856-218-1414. Or, click here for their website.
