Here’s the plan: Give back to the community. Do it while shopping. Get high-end, designer names for less. Pay no tax.
Is it a utopia? Almost! It’s the Upscale Resale to benefit the Wiregrass Museum of Art and in my opinion, a fabulous idea!
I attended the preview Thursday and can’t wait to go back Saturday morning and shop! These women have put in such time and effort to turn the Depot on Main into a relaxing, friendly, fun shopping atmosphere while the community has come forward and donated some of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry, artwork, home décor and clothing. It’s just plain fun!
Here’s how it works: You wake-up super early, shop for the latest styles, looks and trends and all your hard-earned money benefits the educational programs the Museum sponsors. Basically, that means you’re not only giving back to the Museum, you’re also giving back to the community and the school system and getting new clothes, jewels, art and more all at the same time!
From my female point-of-view…it’s a great idea! I’ll see you on Saturday at 7 am!
What do you think? Did you find anything fabulous on Thursday? Will you be heading out Saturday? Are you a fan of “donation shopping” or would you rather see the Museum put on other kinds of fundraisers?
