Our Flash Sale for Charity

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.

Flash Sale for Charity

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!

    I love that you guys did this! Sounds like it was a ton of fun and what a great way to raise some funds and bring awareness to NFPs that are working hard.
