"I feel like I get even more back than I put in!"
This is Taya! She started volunteering at Shared Space Westcliff nine months ago when she became interested in supporting a local charity and felt that this would be a great use of her time. 
Taya enjoys the variety of tasks at Shared Space, such as sorting, pricing, and creating appealing displays. 
Taya also enjoys that she occasionally takes photos for our social media. 
You may spot a vintage and designer rail in our Westcliff store, this is something that Taya takes great pride in curating!
