Our $3 Sale Returns -For Tinker Camp!

Tinker Camp

Yes, the $3 Sale is back!

This is one of our favorite events, which we host 3-4 times each year as a benefit fundraiser.

If you’ve not attended before, let us give you a primer. It’s a bit of a madhouse, a bit of a treasure hunt, and a LOT of fun, with great deals to be had for only $3 per item!

Saturday, June 1st

At our Johns Landing shop, we clear out all we can from Shoe-La-La, and roll in the rolling racks. Then, we stock the racks with hundreds of clothing items, and some accessories like handbags and scarves. (No shoes so far, due to space constraints.) The doors open promptly at 10:00am, and the rush begins!

Our selected recipients for the proceeds are chosen from small local groups, with shoestring budgets where our contribution can really make a difference. So far, we’ve raised money for Mainspring Portland, Depave (twice!) and The Rock and Roll Camp for Girls.

We’re so proud to be hosting this event for the benefit of Tinker Camp!Tinker Camp Portland Oregon

Tinker Camp is a local not-for-profit that works with kids on STEM-based Tinker Camphands-on structured play and problem-solving. They work with both girls and boys, many of whom might not get exposed to focused educational experiences in  “outside the box” learning.

Tinker Camp’s approach to taking kids’ curiosity and funneling it Tinker Camp Portland Oregontowards an experience where failure is only an opportunity to try again. Their fearless approach meshes with our view of the world, that experimentation, whether with fashion or robots and tools, is to be applauded and encouraged!Tinker Camp Portland Oregon

We love their motto: “Try. Learn. Try again.” Their goal :

We seek to help any kid — any kid with the desire — to embrace their very own
Life Scientific.
Life Mathematic.
Life Technologic.

Bravo, Tinker Camp. Help us raise some money for them, y’all, and get some great stuff for only $3!

Chris is a self-confessed resale fashionista. A fashion recycler from an early age, she learned the consignment business from her mother, Jan Gauger, at omt divine resale in Lincoln, Nebraska. Chris moved to Portland, Oregon in 1990 and immediately felt at home, among her people. She started Here We Go Again Deluxe Resale Boutique in 1992 and has never looked back. The second location of her store opened in 1997. Chris loves pretty much everything about clothes and fashion, but she has a serious boot and shoe addiction that is fed by the two stores. It's doubtful she will ever be recovered. In addition to clothes, Chris loves mentoring young women and teaching them about what it takes to run and manage a small business. She has employed some pretty remarkable women over the years and is grateful for all they've done to help grow Here We Go Again. She is a Hoosier by birth, but was raised in Nebraska. She has two sisters who continue to run the consignment store there, and one brother who has sense enough to stay out of the way. Her husband of twenty-seven years, is a land use planner and the fix-anything-guru that Chris relies upon more often than she'd like.
