We can’t all be humanitarian celebs, donating US$1M to the Red Cross’s good work (Sandra Bullock) or warbling on a fundraising single (Boy George, Cliff Richard et al.). Enter Nathalie-Roze Fischer, go-getting local columnist (and chief glamazon of her accessories fempire).
With a little help from designers-about-town, she’s organized a massive designer jumble sale taking place this Saturday at Bellefair United Church (2002 Queen St. East in the Beaches, across from Kew Gardens), 10am – 5pm. All money raised will go to the Tsunami relief fund via the Canadian Red Cross and the final donation amount will be matched by the Ontario gov’t.
The sale is still looking for product donations (new or very gently used items) from civilians: clothing, CDs, DVDs, toys, books, housewares, et cetera. Clothes hangers, shopping bags & warm-bodied volunteers are especially needed. The sale’s list of contributors is long and growing by the minute: Sister Underwear, Domistyle aprons, Snoflake, Dagg & Stacey, Skirt, Pink Saki, 2-Mile jewellery, Flyball bags, Greenbaum Clothing, Barbie’s Basement Jewellery, Nathalie-Roze and Peach Berserk (plus gift certificates from restaurants, spas and gyms/yoga studios).
Drop-off points for your gently used – repeat – gently used merch, by Friday night, are:
Peach Berserk at 507 Queen W. (Bonus: owner Kingi Carpenter will give everyone who drops off a donation a PB coupon for ten bucks.)
And beginning tomorrow, at Skirt at 903 Dundas W.
Alternatively, you can contact organizer Nathalie-Roze. As a last resort, you can also drop items off at the church, on the day-of only, between 9am-10am.
