Are you Spring cleaning your closets for Rose Brooks Center? Now’s the time! Our World's Window 9th annual "Flipping Favorites" clothing drive is now under way. As a part of our 30th anniversary celebrations, we are aiming for the most successful clothing gathering ever. The Rose Brooks benefit “Flipping Favorites” Grand Finale Party is Thursday, May 8, but first we need to collect hundreds of new and gently-used clothing from customers like yourself.
Another World's Window anniversary celebration - or saleabration! An amazing 30 years - it's hard to believe. We're getting ready to throw an all-day party and hope you can join us.
The festivities start on our sidewalk at 9:30. We'll give you some yummy breakfast "fuel" for shopping and meet you with a colorful wrist tie that will designate your special 30% discount for as long as you want to shop.
It's that time of year again. As the weather gets cooler, perhaps with some frost on the ground, we start pulling out sweaters and jackets and coats to keep us warm throughout the winter. At Rose Brooks Center, the women and children that arrive for shelter from domestic violence often come without coats and many times without any additional clothing besides what they are wearing.
This week a sewing machine has been humming in the middle of World’s Window, the eclectic world folk art and clothing boutique in Brookside. During pauses in regular retail “busy-ness,” staff have perched at a table to cut quilt squares. Customers stop by to ask about the project at hand and share their own stories of making, collecting or receiving gifts of quilts.
Over 850 nearly-new and gently worn garments hang in size-runs, ready for this Thursday's "Fabulous Flipping Favorites" clothing drive for Rose Brooks Center, Kansas City's largest domestic violence agency.
Our 8th annual spring fund-raiser on Thursday, April 18 from 6 - 8 pm (hopefully outside in front of our store) will provide needed clothing and funds for the women at Rose Brooks. We'll hold the sale, rain or shine!
Now is the time to clean your closets and donate for our 8th annual Flipping Favorites clothing drive for Rose Brooks Center, Kansas City's largest domestic violence agency. Many of you already know the routine:
This Saturday Yes, right in our store. Our own Arlene Williams, who is a licensed massage therapist will have her massage chair tucked into a corner of our back room to treat you to a mini-massage of 5 or 10 minutes. Maybe a hand massage. Perhaps a neck and back massage. This will no doubt be the BEST $5 or $10 you will spend on yourself all holiday season! This Saturday, Dec. 1, starting at 10 when we open. These little treat appointments will be first-come-first-served, so come early to get your name on her list.
