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 is a local not-for-profit that works with kids on STEM-based hands-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 towards 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!
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
Bravo, Tinker Camp. Help us raise some money for them, y’all, and get some great stuff for only $3!
