Member volunteers at Assistance League® Way Side Inn Thrift Shop, located in the well known Lafayette Square at 3521 Golden Gate Way, have an aversion to dropping names but find it impossible what with the upcoming events. On Tuesday, October 22, at 10:00 AM sharp, you will find yourselves among discerning shoppers as you are ushered in to a thrift shop that will be lined with an array of cashmere sweaters. You’ll have no difficulty shaking off the autumn morning or evening chill after you select that perfect sweater, whether a cardigan, v neck, scoop neck, long sleeve, three-quarter length sleeve—the possibilities will be endless. When you glance at the price tag, you’ll probably adjust your sights by selecting two garments, if not more.
October 22 will also launch the St. John/Misook event, an absolute must when considering career, holiday, and evening attire. The words “timeless, classic, versatile, elegant, sophisticated, and AFFORDABLE” will surely come to mind when you sample items previously owned, yet infrequently worn. You’ll be in very good company. You’ll also be in a quandary when you weigh the St. John upscale, women-feature-friendly, formal, sport, and cruise attire against the varied sized, easy-to-care-for and travel with, nearly spot and stain resistant Misook. You’ll figure it out, you’ll see! Hopefully, this event will run through November 2, subject to availability—no promises!
As an additional advantage, when you purchase and donate items at Assistance League Way Side Inn Thrift Shop, you will improve the lives of those in our community who are in need and at risk. Dedicated member volunteers will provide you with a tax receipt for your donations, as well.
