Since 2013, Shoppe 561 has provided a venue for Florida artisans to showcase their work, which is accepted on consignment and available for purchase both in the store and online. The underlying theme of the Shoppe is HOPE. Since Florida is ranked third in the nation for human trafficking, the Shoppe uses HOPE to focus their philanthropic efforts on the cause. In addition, many of the store’s professional artisans have designed pieces of their own to create awareness about human trafficking and raise additional funds for the cause.
