Today at Amos Alonzo Stagg High School in Palos Hill, IL we opened for probably the 20th time this year Staggbucks.
For those of you that don't know, Staggbucks is a cafe that the Junior-Senior Class Council runs at Stagg in order to help raise money for the senior gift, different school events, etc. (I am going to need to write a whole post about that on its own).
Recently while we have been going through the Student Council's inventory we saw that there are a lot of shirts left over from prior year's homecomings, Stagg fests, Dances, and many other fun things that have been organized throughout the years. So, we decided to do something about these shirts instead of letting them lay in boxes in storage somewhere. We decided to host a "Vintage Sale" where we sold each shirt for $5. We saw the potential in capitalizing on the current dress phase of going vintage and thrifting.
The cool part in all of this is that we were able to use the resources we already have in order to put together something fun that students were able to take part in and show their pride with. I attached a video taken by one of our council members, Natalie Jarzabek. I also attached some twitter posts to show how we advertised as well!

I wanted to share this on my portfolio because I want to allow other schools to also hop onto this trend and start finding different streams of revenue in order to enrich the experience of high school students!
