A Boutique Experience with The Creative Emporium


Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter Club of The Villages wants you to picture a community where every person and family has the chance to feel the safety and warmth of a secure home.  Adjacent to the Leesburg ReStore, The Creative Emporium is giving you the chance to realize this goal by helping support the community through the sale of handmade gifts and one-of-a-kind upcycled creations. 

Housing is more than just a roof over one’s head; it is the cornerstone of thriving communities and paves the way for brighter tomorrows. Club members realized that for many of our community’s essential workers, their wages have not kept pace with rising housing costs. Our neighbors earn a good income but still struggle to live near where they work. The Club worked towards a solution to this problem and it required an all-hands approach to open and run — the club designed and launched The Creative Emporium in Leesburg at 200 N. Lone Oak Drive in 2023.  Your purchase supports Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter Club of The Villages and their build in Oxford!

The Creative Emporium is an artisan boutique designed and created by the hardworking hands of the volunteer members of the Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter Club of The Villages.

Filled to the brim with beautiful, custom, quality and handmade products, all the proceeds from every sale are used to further the mission of Habitat for Humanity Lake-Sumter to provide affordable housing throughout our community.  The Creative Emporium sells products that the Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter Club of The Villages members build, repurpose, and upscale to upcycle. This club effort extends their reach and allows the community to purchase these creations to support Habitat Lake-Sumter. The Creative Emporium is committed to offering gifts that are not only beautiful and well-crafted, but also meaningful and thoughtful too. Their unique stock is never the same from one day to the next. 

We would love to have you stop by and see our beloved gift shop, known for our exceptional selection and friendly customer service, and support affordable housing in our community.

With all proceeds going towards constructing homes with Habitat Lake-Sumter in our local area, every handmade gift and repurposed piece of art supports the mission for affordable housing in Lake and Sumter counties.

We are delighted to share our carefully curated and created items with you!
