The Junior League of Atlanta's Nearly New Shop
Since opening its doors in 1949, the Junior League of Atlanta’s Nearly New Shop has served hundreds of thousands of customers, raised more than four million dollars in net revenue, and moved eight times — growing with each relocation. Countless memories have been made by every League member who has worked at Nearly New at some point in their League career. More than 350 League members work more than 7,000 hours at the store and more than 1000 members make direct donations to the store on a yearly basis. Just as The Nearly New Shop helps financially support the efforts of the Junior League, so do the members of the Junior League of Atlanta help support the Nearly New.
The Nearly New Shop opened its doors after careful research, led by then president of JLA, Mary Elizabeth Schroder. “We knew we were going to be losing some income from the Metropolitan Opera, so we were looking for another fundraiser to implement,” said Mary Elizabeth. After seeing the success other leagues were having with their own second-hand shops, Mary Elizabeth and the JLA leaders put together a committee to investigate the feasibility of a shop and started making plans. “All of the fundraisers we had done up to that point were really events or programs of some other organization that benefited the League.” Mary Elizabeth went on to state, “the idea that we could possibly raise the money all on our own was an entirely new concept.”
Throughout all the growth, the mission of The Nearly New Shop has remained the same: to offer quality merchandise and a positive Junior League image, to raise money for community projects, and to offer an interesting, fun placement for members. Proceeds from the Nearly New Shop are used to train and educate League members for effective community service, as well as to financially support projects and programs where League volunteers serve.
