If you’re not familiar with this charming store, Raks is a consignment shop that carries women’s, junior’s, plus sizes and men’s clothes, as well as jewelry, shoes and accessories. The clothes are helpfully displayed, and there are dressing rooms. If the shoe fits, wear it home!
Youngstown Cash Mob August Event

RAKS NEARLY NEW
3800 Belmont Ave.
We also voted to visit a consignment shop in October. I think it’s great. Clothing resale reduces resource consumption, and keeps all of our purchase money local. We will be visiting The Encore Shop at 4427 Logan Way Plaza on Sat. 27 Oct. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. They will have some Halloween costumes, as well as women’s fall clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories. And the restaurant Breakfast at Tiffany’s will sponsor a bake sale to raise money for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
We had a wonderful day at the Northside Farmer’s Market in August. Word is spreading about our group, and the Youngstown Cash Mob Facebook page is busy with activity. Hopefully, that will lead to more Youngstowners making more of their day-to-day purchases at independent, locally-owned businesses, the places that make our community unique.
