How did it all begin? “The Edna Boutique” was the nickname for the room where clothing donations were kept at The Edna House for Women. The ladies would be able to treasure hunt in these donations. Whether it is out of necessity for those that come to us with little more than the clothing on their backs, because they are back to a healthy weight now that they are sober and need to change sizes, or just to bolster their self-esteem, the ladies have all shared adoration for “The Edna Boutique” over the years.
The idea of extending The Edna Boutique to the public came after our Board Chair paid a visit to the Harbor Light Complex of the Salvation Army and found that their operation was funded primarily by proceeds from their store. The Edna Boutique would give us a venue for job skills training and employment for our residents, as well as a revenue stream to help defray the $30,000/month operating costs of the sober living facilities. Thus The Edna Boutique was born in a sunny storefront on Madison Avenue in Cleveland's Lakewood neighborhood. If you're in the area, stop by, say hi to the cheery ladies behind the counter, and find your own treasure.
