Our Story

 Agape Chic:  Where Style is Reborn


Our Beginning:

Agape Chic is an upscale women's consignment boutique located in Brandon, Florida established in 2010 by two friends, Dena & Stacy, through the guidance of Jesus Christ.  His vision is for a place where women can come together in order to create a community of power, love and self-control (2Timothy1:7).  In 2018, Dena continued as sole proprietor of Agape Chic and is continuing the good work that God has begun in this little boutique.  Because we are locally owned and operated, we promise to make your consignment process an enjoyable boutique experience.  

Agape Chic makes available to our friends, family and neighbors the ability to find beautiful fashions that are reborn.  We are aware of the need to reduce, reuse, and recycle in order to preserve the earth's awesome beauty and resources.  We desire to empower women through advocacy and community involvement.  At first glance, Agape Chic is a retail women's consignment boutique, but the true heart of this body is to show God's love through our hands and feet through self-giving service within our local area.  We have been blessed with an opportunity to blend our commitment to God, our desire to empower women, and our love of fashion in order to encourage all who enter our doors.

Starting Agape Chic was God-inspired.  As the youngest of 8 kids, I learned my hard work ethic from watching my mom and learning from her.  God directed my path as I grew older and I learned to lean in, trust and listen. I found that He is my Hope and Strength and through Him, I am able to bless others without judgment.  

At Agape Chic, we run the store with the customer in mind through our business practices and beliefs, as they are the heart of our business. As a way to ensure we stay up to date with what is happening with our resale community, Agape Chic is a proud member of NARTS (The National Association of Resale Professionals).  We joined when we first opened and it has guided us, taught us and empowered us through its knowledge and friendships.  

I have a heart for community and am involved with a local non-profit, The Angel Foundation, a wonderful organization that helps people who are going through catastrophic life events. I also promote other organizations and other local small businesses in our community. We donate throughout the year to The Lighthouse Gospel Mission (Tampa) and work with countless schools and organizations by donations and support.

On a personal note, I recently celebrated my 24th wedding anniversary, and I am a mom of 4, with my youngest graduating from college this year. I am also grateful for the 5 grands that I am able to love on every chance I get. I was born in this area, attended schools in this area and now get to live this beautiful life in our still little town.

I consider my staff an extension of my family and we are able to support one another at work and outside of work. Customers and consignors are friends, and we grow tight in our relationships around here, I hope you come in and check us out. We would all love to welcome you to our community!
