Twitter LogoAFacebook Logos a long-time friend and employee of Arc’s Value Village, Michelle Dustin has the inside scoop on all things thrift.  With extensive retail experience and years of avid secondhand shopping, Michelle has developed an impressive knack for shopping and styling on a thrift store budget. In 2011, Michelle approached the Value Village team with the innovative idea to offer the same personal shopping services found in high-end department stores at Arc’s Value Village, and customers responded enthusiastically. To date, Michelle has shopped with over two hundred Value Village customers and regularly sees happy return clients. In May 2012, Michelle became a full-time team member at Arc’s Value Village, serving as Personal Shopper, Thrift Stylist, and social media contributor.
