Thank you again to everyone for making our recent Flash Sale for Charity a success! Kim and Scott (Yellow Brick Home), Kyla (House of Hipsters), and I, along with a team of volunteers and raffle prize sponsors were able to raise almost $4000 in just a few hours thanks to you lovely people coming out to shop and show your support. The money has all been split evenly between Housing Forward, CRISP, and Jackson Chance.
As we were setting up (in the beautiful studio of GoochToo, photographed here by Daniel Peter), I kept looking around at everything we had gathered for the sale like “ooh that’s cool, wait, that too!” People scored some amazing finds. There were a few pieces I was particularly attached to, but it felt good to see them go off with excited new owners, knowing that the cash raised was all heading off to good causes.
We had a DJ, the sweetest pup (looking for a home and available through One Tail at a Time), and coffee from Grounds and Hounds Coffee Co. It was a winning combination that kept everyone going and having fun!
Thank you also to the partners that generously came through with fantastic prizes for our raffle winners.

A good time for a good cause was had by all! What do you think, Chicago, should we all do it again sometime?
