Hung Up on Rung

 In Feature, Style

Rock Hill’s hot new resale shop-with-a-cause will have you obsessed from your very first visit.


A self-proclaimed resale junkie, the owners of most STL secondhand stores know me by name. So, when I heard that Rock Hill was home to a new shop that could soon become a regular on my shopping days’ out, I couldn’t wait to check it out. When I went to Rung Boutique for the first time, I immediately fell in love with the bright-and-girly ambience; it felt as though I was walking into an upscale boutique. Before I introduced myself, the owner greeted me and walked me through the store’s setup: spaced-out racks, divided by style and size. The inventory is best described as gently-used (looked new to me!), in-season professional and business casual clothing and accessories (including handbags, plus new jewelry by local female artists) by the likes of such labels as Tahari, Ann Taylor and Banana Republic. I got busy…

As I shopped, motivated as much by the on-trend styles as by the budget-friendly prices, I was informed that each piece of clothing was someone’s tax deductible donation, and that 100 percent of the store’s profits go to the Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis, a volunteer organization that funds local community projects that support the needs of women at all levels of the career ladder—a perfect cause, when considering the business-focused inventory.

After a good hour of mid-weekday shopping (it’s my job!), I left with a handful of items, including what’s becoming my signature—a light button-down that skews menswear. I was doing a good deed.
