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:
With delight our staff presented a check for $1070.00 to Rose Brooks Center this week. The check represents all of the donations given for our holiday gift wrapping as well as the money raised through the sale of our eco-friendly, fair-trade shopping bags. The check was presented to Marie Dispenza on behalf of Rose Brooks who said they were delighted to receive a check of this size right at the beginning of the year. Our heartfelt thanks to all of you customers who dropped donations into our box. You made a difference!
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.
Starting Saturday morning, November 3, over 150 nativities will fill one our front windows for our annual show of nativities from around the world. Nativities of cloth, ceramic, carved wood, hammered metal, stone and even bottlecaps have been gathered from countries such as Peru, Mexico, Haiti, the Philippines, China, Kenya, Indonesia, Rwanda, Tanzania, and El Salvador as well as from The Holy Land - Bethlehem.
