For many, the typical transition from high school to real life is postponed by a forray into an extended adolescene wherein young adults rely on their parents to attend keg parties and other “college” activities. But times are changing and not all children are entering into this destructive stage. SeacostOnline has more on one such teen:
For many kids, graduating high school means getting out of mom and dad’s house, going to college and experiencing everything that goes along with that and planning out their last summer at home.
For 18-year-old Stephanie Hartley, Winnacunnet High School graduation this year will give her the chance to open and run her own consignment store for teens, called Live. Laugh. Shop, located at 387 Lafayette Road, Unit 108, in Hampton.
The store is slated to open on Saturday, April 2. On Friday, April 1, Hartley will host a drop-off day from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., during which the public may drop off used clothing and accessories at the store.
Using a consignment store business model, donors of store items will receive a portion of the profits if those items are sold, Hartley said.
