The Upscale WeeSale was ‘born” after moving back “home” to Rock Hill in May 1999, My first sale took place in September 1999 with 60 consignors in the small VFW building on Main Street in Rock Hill. We are now preparing for our 32nd sale with over 750 consignors. Wow… I had no idea how we would grow over the years! It has been challenging, exciting, and fun! My goal is to provide our community with an upscale consignment sale that promises quality merchandise in a fun and exciting atmosphere. We are constantly trying to improve our sale, season after season. We have an amazing community in Rock Hill and Fort Mill. Thank you to all the wonderful UPWS consignors, volunteers, and customers that have made UPWS grow over the last 16 years.
I graduated from Rock Hill High School in 1986 & graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1990. Go Gamecocks! I currently sit on the board of a wonderful, God centered organization called Give Hope Global as Director of Orphan Care. If I am not planning a sale, I am planning my next trip to Haiti where we try to make a difference one child at a time.
My husband of 25 years, Martie, is my #1 partner at the WeeSale. He is a huge help and I couldn’t possibly do it without him. He is the chief “Husband Help” leader! He really appreciates the “man help” each season!
We have 2 wonderful kids. Brooke is 22 and a recent graduate from the University of South Carolina in Columbia. She works for Push Digital in Charleston, SC . She majored in Business with a double degree in Marketing and Management. We are very proud of her accomplishments and still can’t believe our little girl is now on her own. Josh is 20 years old and a Junior at USC. He is our social butterfly and is constantly on the go. He is working as an intern at Spirit Communications while working to get his degree in business.
Believe it or not, we are now empty nesters! I really miss having my kids home, but I am enjoying the new found freedom of just being married to my husband again! Our 4-legged fur babies keep me entertained most everyday! We have 2 dachshunds, Jake & Jovie and our newest addition little miss ‘Lana’ Del Ray tabby kitten! Josh rescued and hid her for 3 weeks in his apartment. Love his gentle spirit!
I could not do this sale without the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is the foremost and most predominant piece of the puzzle. Christian values and integrity are the backbone of The Upscale WeeSale. We will always do the right thing!
I have met so many wonderful people and have made friendships that will last a lifetime! God has blessed me abundantly and I hope that the Upscale WeeSale will be a blessing to you, in some small way.
Thank you for visiting and I look forward to meeting you at the next sale!!
