Mother's Day Clothing Swap
Sat, May 9, 2 - 6
What a response!
Wise Daughters received a mountain of fabulous fashions and raised far more money than anticipated for The Redwood Shelter. Because we had much more clothing than we could even display, there will be a Part 2. On June 13 from 9 - 2, as part of the Junction-wide yard sale, we'll put out all the rest of the women's fashion treasures. This time, just for fun, it'll cost $10 for all you can stuff into the biggest Wise Daughters paper bag. Once again, 100% of the proceeds will benefit the shelter.
