How to Help

The easiest way to help is… shop! The success of our resale shop also depends on volunteer support and generous donations of new or gently used items (which are tax deductible). Drop off your items during business hours!

The Story Behind
TattleTails

After retiring from the corporate world, Hamilton County resident Lisa Bednar Cook decided to use her business knowledge to start a virtual resale store named Kasey’s Kloset (named after her four-legged pal Kasey). As an animal lover and shelter supporter, Cook donated all proceeds from Kasey’s Kloset to HSHC for the first few months of operations.

Then Lisa had an even better idea — what if HSHC established its own resale shop where 100% of net proceeds benefited the animals? With a business proposal in hand and research proving how successful resale shops can be, Lisa sold us on the idea to mix our love of saving animals with saving money on great buys!

Lisa and HSHC then worked with Carolyn Harlow Deines, also an HSHC supporter and owner of Carolyn’s Consignments, to help HSHC establish the TattleTails Resale Shop inside the Noblesville Resale Shops (owned by Carolyn and her husband). The rest is history!

    Your Goodwill Alternative

    The success of our resale shop depends on your generous donations of new or gently used items. The good news is, your donated items are tax-deductible! Donations may be dropped off during our hours of operation (see above).

    NOTE: Dropping off clean donations in boxes, tubs, or on hangers makes processing so much easier for our very small staff of volunteers. You can drop off donations at the back doors of the shop (ring the doorbell!) or via the front entrance. Please don’t leave your valuable donations outside as they may get damaged or stolen.

    Have a large item or furniture you can’t transport? Not sure if we can resell an item you’d like to donate? Contact us at
    (317) 773-7655 or email TattleTailsResale@gmail.com for assistance.
