Jennifer was born and raised in Antioch, IL. Jennifer and her grandmother, Wilma Gibbs, used to volunteer at Antioch's local thrift shop. Their memories together inspired Jennifer to open The Village Thrift Shop in 2008, and to once again provide the community with a second hand thrift store.
Jennifer has a bachelor's degree in Psychology. She previously worked as a financial consultant before pursing her passion for thrifting.
Lisa has been in the hospitality business for over 20 years! Previously, she specialized in retail management and department store display/design. She ensures that donations are handled with great care and thoughtfully placed throughout the store. Her creative ideas keep The Village Thrift Shop fresh and beautiful and she makes each visit to the shop unique.
