Elizabeth's: A Baby Boutique

s-3Elizabeth’s: A Baby Boutique has operated since November 11, 2011 within the Family Life Services organization. Elizabeth’s: A Baby Boutique is named after Elizabeth in the Bible who was the mother of John. Three things we learn from the Elizabeth of the Bible, and these three things we desire to be: a humble servant, a compassionate non-judgmental nurturer, and a gracious hostess.

We humbly accept the call that Christ has on our center to serve the needs of men and women who find themselves in unexpected pregnancies. We desire to provide incentives for these parents to receive education from the Pregnancy Resource Center, other local agencies, churches, and the medical community, that will assist them on the journey of their lives. We aim to treat them with the respect due to any person who brings life into this world as all life is sacred and intended.

Elizabeth’s is a volunteer-run resale boutique for infant wear and accessories with brand new, gently-used, and handcrafted items. We present an extensive range of items, re-fashioning traditional items in ways that would benefit new mothers and babes. The shop carries baby care items that can be purchased, money from these sales will go toward purchasing additional items for the shop. In addition, participants of the Pregnancy Resource Center can purchase items using Baby Bucks.

Elizabeth’s is staffed solely by trained volunteers. To learn about the volunteer process, please read our volunteer page. The items sold in Elizabeth’s are provided by donations. Donations come in the form of diaper and bottle drives, new to gently worn item donations, and monetary donations.

Elizabeth’s operates on donations alone and as a result, it’s inventory varies. Items Elizabeth’s typically carries includes; baby food, size newborn to 4 Toddler clothes, bath tubs, bottles, crib sheets, wipes, bouncy seat, car seats, cribs, changing tables, powder formula, liquid formula, high chairs, potty chairs, shoes, strollers, swings, and various children’s furniture. (Some items Elizabeth’s carries are only available to Earn While You Learn participants.)
