    Does anyone offer an online thrift shop?  We are looking at expanding our Boutique and offering it via our website.  We use Wordpress and the e-commerce plugin they recommend is WooCommerce.  Does anyone have any experience with this or any other e-commerce plugin?

    Hi Christine! While I do not have any suggestions I just wanted to say I think that is a great idea! Hopefully, you can find your answers even if it is through a regular business example-maybe a small business forum or podcasts such as 48 days Eagles or something similar could help. Have a blessed day and thank you for all that you do for the animals! Sarah

    Hi Christine, I don't have any answers for you or experience with this.  However, "maybe" Hugh, at Hugh's Views and News might.  He is a blogger who blogs about writing, but he also is a wealth of knowledge about blogging.  He has knowledge about WordPress and answers questions for people.  He is also an animal lover.  Here is a link to his site in regards to blogging info.  You could also contact him/send him an e-mail at the top of the page where it says contact Hugh.  Not sure he'll have the answers for you but if he does I think he would be happy to help you.

    Hi Christine,

    Our thrift shop has been selling via our Facebook page, Facebook marketplace, Offer Up and LetGo. Ebay is an option but can be a lot more time-consuming- it may be best reserved for specialty items. We are allowing shipping and pick up. You can check out our Facebook page here.
