Thank You from Amy and Caren

Hello Consignors, Volunteers, Family and Friends,

We would like to take a moment and thank you for the years of dedication you have given to our sale.  Recently, Amy and I found ourselves at a cross road, with Amy’s Real Estate business growing and with me working full time, consulting and going back to school for my Doctorate, we were worried about the amount of time we could dedicate to the Kidz Shoppe.  We were not looking to sell the business however, as things sometimes happen, an opportunity came to us.  This was an opportunity to not close the doors of Kidz Shoppe but to keep it alive, growing and serving the community.  With great contemplation but in the end great excitement, we have sold Kidz Shoppe to Ali Van Winkle and Sheila Hahn

This was not an easy decision because Kids Shoppe is like our second family.  We have experienced stress, loss, births and so many other amazing experiences with all of you.  Whether you have been with us for 18 years, 8 years or 8 months, we valued and appreciated everything we did together.  We feel so blessed that we were able to serve you, work with you, laugh and at times cried with you.  Like we said second family is not an understatement.  We have made life long friends that we will never forget.  We cannot say thank you enough for all you have done for us.  Amy and I never believed this sale would have become what it has, but as its’ leaders we realize it was the strength of our Kidz Shoppe Community that helped us create this legacy. 

Kidz Shoppe will continue to stand for amazing customer service, quality gently used clothing, and in mission driven work with charities and the community.  We will support Ali and Sheila in this transition.  We know change is not easy, but we ask that you all help in this transition.  It will take all of you to support the new leadership and continue to provide our customers with excellent service.  Kidz Shoppe will have a new face lift and we are excited to see what the next chapter holds.

You will all be missed.  Please contact Amy or Caren if you have any questions, do not hesitate.  In addition, you may also contact Ali at or  They can both also be reached via phone at 402-370-8150.

“Every act of kindness grows the spirit and strengthens the soul.”  Thank you for all you have done, your kindness and dedication to Kidz Shoppe has not gone unnoticed. 

Amy and Caren
