SAVANNAH — Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire, Inc. is proud to announce an exclusive partnership with The Southern Women’s Show with the debut of one of the shows  largest and newest features, the Goodwill Boutique.

Goodwill will showcase 400 square feet of retail items ranging from handbags, clothing, interior accessories and more for on-site purchase. The  Southern Women’s Show returns to the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center  Feb. 6-8.

One of the most highly anticipated events in Savannah, the annual Southern Women’s Show, attracts thousands of women each year for three jam-packed days of fashion shows, cooking demonstrations, beauty tips, health screenings, decorating ideas and personal growth  opportunities-all tailored especially for women.  

Celebrity guest Sue Whitney will be in the Goodwill Boutique area following her stage presentations to answer questions, give tips and sign autographs. Sue is a frequent “Today” show contributor and brings her “market style” to Savannah. She is regularly seen on HGTV’s “Country Style”, editor-at-large for Country Home Magazine and co-author of “Decorating Junkmarket Style” and the recently published “Junk Beautiful.” Whitney’s stage presentations feature many of her original, one-of-a-kind,  re-purposed items for the home as well as outdoor furniture and accessories.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Goodwill to demonstrate our services and willingness to help those who need a little assistance in becoming contributing, valuable members of the  community,” said Ann Crowder, chairman of Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire board of directors. “While we are, of course, gender neutral in our work, many of our clients are women who either crave the ability to become self-sufficient and achieving, or are the caregivers of those who benefit from our services. We are proud of producing most of our operating budget through our work which will be showcased at The Southern Women’s Show, and of the success and achievement of our clients —they do the hard work; we just provide the framework.”

Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire, Inc. provides job training, employment services, job placement opportunities and post employment support to strengthen communities and families by training people to become independent, tax-paying members of society. Those services include ADVANCE (formerly Second Chance), a community re-entry program for people with acquired brain injury.

The Southern Women’s Show hours are Friday 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m.. Admission is $9 at the door, $5 for children 6-12 and free for children under the age of 6; readmission tickets are $5.
