There are those who can turn a negative into a positive and those who can turn a negative into positive cash flow.
The second Divorcée Sale, also billed as "A Charity Shopping Event at Pelican Hill Resort," unfolds July 22 through 24. If you think you've heard of everything, you probably haven't heard of this.
What a concept. A woman named Jill Alexander and a confederacy of compadres, many of whom belong to the Divorcée Society of America, came up with a brilliant idea to resell gently used luxury merchandise that had to go when they had to go. For most women — and plenty of men — purging the closet, cleaning out the house and emptying all of the drawers is cathartic. Out with the old, time to start over and begin a new phase of life.
"If you have always wanted a certain handbag, but hesitated spending the money fearing your husband would divorce you when he found out, this is the perfect sale for you," Alexander said. "It's a win-win in the best sense of the term."
