Do you need a cute blue chair? Maybe a retro-mod table lamp or enough square wooden frames to make the gallery wall of your dreams? Because I don’t anymore, and off to our Flash Sale for Charity it goes! Chicago, you should come.
Sharing my home, staging shoots, and working with sponsors means I change things around here more quickly than I otherwise would sometimes. I sell or donate things often, and it’s time for another round of paring down. The cute blue chair above, but also other furniture, lamps and lighting fixtures, art and frames, and so many vases. Cute stuff, useful stuff, things I just don’t have a spot for but still love! Let it be yours. And hey, let the money you spend on it be donated to charity.
Kim and Scott from Yellow Brick Home reached out with the idea for this sale, and I was immediately on board. Kyla from House of Hipsters was all in too, and together we’re putting on the chicest version of a rummage sale you ever did see. What are you doing on Saturday, April 6th? You’re coming to see us at our Flash Sale for Charity!
That’s the location above, the studio of GoochToo at 159 N Racine. There is free street parking in the area and it is a 3rd floor walk-up, but we are working on gathering a team of volunteers to help carry the big stuff down for you. We’ll also have a DJ, coffee and refreshments, and a smile on our faces. The best stuff will go fast, and we will take cash if you have exact change, but would prefer credit, debit, or Venmo. Doors will open at 9 a.m. sharp!
All proceeds will be split evenly between Housing Forward, CRISP, and Jackson Chance Foundation. We are thrilled to be able to give back and support these local organizations that are so important to each of us with your help.
And speaking of help, we are thrilled to have the support of some of our favorite sponsors and local companies. They are donating goods and prizes for a raffle, like a stay in a beautiful hotel, custom framing, gift cards ranging from $250-500, and more! Raffle tickets will be $5 each or 5/$20, and as with the rest of the flash sale, all proceeds will be donated.
Schoolhouse • Rejuvenation • Article • Unison • MegMade • Framebridge • Hygge & West • Sydney Hale Co. • Josh Young Design Co. • St. Jane Chicago Hotel • Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co. • Strange Lovely • The Savoy Flea • Humboldt House
If this sounds like something you’d like to be involved in (beyond showing up and shopping, because you should totally do that too), let us know! There are two big ways you could help. We are looking for a few more strong people that are able to help carry purchases down stairs and out to cars. And we would also love additional donations! So many of us have that thing we love but no longer need that we’ve been meaning to sell. Consider giving it to the flash sale! Please get in touch to volunteer or donate.
We’re working to make this a great sale full of the kind of stuff you always hope to find when you hit thrift stores and garage sales, and then taking it up a notch (or ten) with the raffle. We can’t wait to see you there!
