The Gem: Pensacola’s Upscale Thrift Store
The Gem graciously welcomed Pensacola Magazine to view the new, upscale thrift store benefiting Covenant Hospice. From vintage to modern pieces in jewelry, furniture and more, for a small store The Gem offers a large assortment of goods, so there’s bound to be a little something for everyone—even for your fur babies and children. All items on display have been donated, and all proceeds go toward supporting programs and patients at Covenant Hospice. If you have unused items cluttering your home, then consider donating them to The Gem. Otherwise, you may support the cause by purchasing either a $100 membership for the year or paying $35 for entry to each of the four annual sales. Don’t miss out on the chance to attend The Gem’s inaugural preview party on Wednesday, Sept. 9 from 5 pm to 8 pm, where there will be music, drinks and hors d’oeuvres while you browse. If you can’t make it to the party, you can still search for your own hidden gem this weekend, Sept. 11 to Sept. 13 from 10 am to 4 pm at The Gem’s not-so-hidden location on 1901 N. Palafox St. To learn more about The Gem, or to find how to become a member, visit eventsatcovenant.org/TheGem.
