Meet The Shop Melee Team

Shop Melee ® was a typical entrepreneurial venture, which began out of Louise’s home some 10 years ago. While operating within a very tight household budget, Louise wanted an easy way to gain value from her own family’s gently used items. The money, which she generated, enabled Louise to buy new items for her family, while insuring the integrity of her budget. Soon, Louise’s family and friends realized the value of recycling their items and a business was born. In 2012, Kim decided to take the entrepreneurial plunge and became partners with Louise in what was known as Shop Melee ®. Today, Louise and Kim provide their services to the general public directly as well as through their team of “mavens” and “masters” who assist clients with closet and home reorganizations. We have also recently changed our name to Shop Melee to reflect our positive growth. The Shop Melee team is ready and willing to help you buy or sell your new items today.
