Wabi Sabi Moves & Grooves in the New Year



The WabiSabi Thriftique, a thrift store on 400 East, will be moving across the street from its present location to the building that was formerly the Moab Mortuary.

Since 2002 WabiSabi has been operating thrift stores in Moab. It currently has two stores, the WabiSabi Thriftique and the WabiSabi Warehouse. The Thriftique specializes in quality used clothing for adults, sports gear, collectibles, books, and jewelry. The Thriftique is unlike a typical thrift store and resembles a boutique with its eye-catching displays and trendy merchandise. The WabiSabi Warehouse, WabiSabi’s other thrift store, sells discount clothing, children’s items, furniture, house wares, electronics, and building supplies. It is located at 145 W 200 South.

Only the Thriftique will be moving to the new location. The WabiSabi Warehouse will continue to operate at its current location.

All of the items sold at both stores come from donations. The money raised by the sales of these items is used to provide financial awards to other Moab based nonprofits, and fund WabiSabi’s programs including workshops, community meals, and The WabiSabi Nonprofit Network.

WabiSabi’s mission statement describes the organization as a community life force that empowers people, promotes sustainability and turns rags in to riches.

A grand opening celebration will be held on Friday January 11th. The day will include a ribbon cutting ceremony and refreshments. There will also be models wearing pieces from outfits that will be featured in WabiSabi’s Mardi Gras Fashion Show. The fashion show is a fundraiser for WabiSabi that includes outrageous outfits made out of recycled materials and designed by local artists. The outfits are auctioned off to the highest bidder. This will be WabiSabi’s 6th fashion show and will take place on Tuesday, February 5th at The Moab Brewery. Tickets for the fashion show will go on sale the day of the opening celebration.

Anyone interested in volunteering to help with the move should call WabiSabi at 259-9114.
