Nashville has a new star by the name of Lori Elam, a remarkable woman inspired by the loss of her pets to open a new consignment shop that sells clothing donated by country music artists and celebrities in efforts to raise money for animal rescue efforts.
“When I lost those two [pets], I met this world of people who are out there saving animals. They educated me on how animals were being treated and being euthanized, and it was a whole other culture that I was not aware of,” Elam told the Tennessean.
Elam’s celebrity consignment shop Estrella will open in May on 12South Avenue.
The nonprofit consignment shop is already well stocked. Items available include country singers James Otto’s biker helmet, Kellie Pickler's autographed T-shirt; and over 150 pieces of clothing, hats and shoes from celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Emmylou Harris, Rascal Flatts member Jay DeMarcus, Christian artist Amy Grant and singer Naomi Judd.
All profits from the ‘Estrella’ boutique will benefit Noah’s Ark Society, a nonprofit that Elam and her husband, Wade, founded in late 2010 to feed, care for and nurse to health cats, dogs, horses, rabbits and birds.
