Local companies rEVOLVEr resale and Yolaine’s Enhancing Skincare Products will soon open a new co-leased shop in Birmingham’s Five Points South. Read on for details.
About the co-space
In a Facebook post on August 16, Sarah Randolph, owner of local consignment company rEVOLVEr resale announced the news that rEVOLVEr resale and Yolaine’s Enhancing Skincare Products signed a lease for a space in historic Five Points South with plans to open in September.
The shop, located on 11th Avenue South, will feature both companies in one shared space.
“We think our products and customer base will complement each other very well.”Sarah Randolph, Owner, rEVOLVEr resale
If you’re big into Birmingham’s startup scene, you may recall rEVOLVEr resale. Owner Sarah Randolph, who identifies as queer, won Innovation Depot’s first-ever LGBTQ+ pitch competition for founding her unique consignment shop.
rEVOLVEr resale offers a space for all, especially LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities to shop a little bit of everything secondhand.
Since May, rEVOLVEr resale has had a temporary home in Vinegar, an artist-run, women-led, contemporary nonprofit art gallery in Birmingham. Randolph’s recently held her Summer Lovin’ pop-up market series in the space over the past few months.
Here are some of the things rEVOLVEr resale offers:
- Vintage + modern clothing
- Home goods
- Children’s items
- Local art
Prices range depending on what you find, but generally you can find furniture as low as $15-$25, modern clothing from $5-$25 and rare vintage clothing for $55-$85. Rare mid-century or modern furniture typically sells for more.
“My main priority is sustainability. Personally, I’ve had a philosophy over the last decade to try and buy as much secondhand as I can because I see it as a form of recycling and keeping things out of landfills.”Sarah Randolph, Owner, rEVOLVEr resale
Yolaine’s Enhancing Skinscare Products
Yolaine’s Enhancing Skincare Products was created out of necessity seven years ago by Birmingham local Yolaine Sykes.
“My children and I have highly sensitive skin. I grew tired of finding it difficult to find products that were fragrance free and organic in addition to paying high prices.”Yolaine Sykes, Owner, Yolaine’s Enhancing Skincare Products
So, Yolaine set out to create a line of quality organic products that were also affordable.
What’d she come up with? You guessed it—Yolaine’s Enhancing Skincare Products. Her product line features organic hair and skincare products such as:
- Handcrafted body oils
- Soaps + salves
- Facial toners
- Hair deodorizers
- Loofah sponges (grown in Yolaine’s very own garden!)
Prices range from $7-$25.
Since its start, Yolaine’s Enhancing Skincare Products has continued to grow with products being sold at seven different stores, spas and gift shops around the Birmingham area.
Eventually, Yolaine hopes to further expand her product line to more cities and states.
