If you've not been in our shop here's a quick rundown of who we are and what we offer. Salina and I (Joanna) opened Fresh Digs because we felt like Effingham lacked home decor and gift shops for the trendier 25-50-something age range. Having to travel out of town or online just weren't doing it for us. Our goal is to offer our local community the ability to touch and see in person what they're buying PLUS have the option to spend their retail dollars in our community all while receiving personal customer service.
In 2014 we found our space in downtown Effingham and got busy finding and supplying our local community with trendy new home decor as well as vintage and handmade goods and gifts. We do our best to source as many wholesale items that are made in the US and/or Fairtrade as possible and we've slowly curated over twenty local artists who make everything from furniture to soap to art. Being able to support these small businesses and offer locally made goods to our community makes us proud.
The shop is separated into the main room where we display new and locally made home decor, furniture and gift items. Through the main room you can walk into The Backroom where you'll find many different vintage eras represented in clothing, wall art, decor, jewelry, lighting and furniture. And don't forget to check out the Sale Room down the hallway on the left-hand side of the main room. We're always adding to it and you can find items that are up to 75% off.
In addition to our business, we are also members of and participate in the Downtown Effingham Business Group activities.
Feel free to email us if you see something on our social media that you'd like to have shipped or put on hold for you for 24 hours. We'd love to help you out!
