Hidden Treasures

Attention all benevolent bargainistas!

Some of you may know that I work full-time with Dress for Success Ottawa as the Manager of Programs.  Dress for Success is an international charity (located in over 120 cities worldwide) that provides disadvantaged women with career clothing and the skills to boost their confidence and succeed both personally and professionally.  On Saturday September 15th from 10am-2pm, we are opening our boutique doors to the public to shop our overstock merchandise.  All profits will go towards Dress for Success Ottawa operations so that we can continue to enrich the lives of our clients.
We are clearing out seasonal and overstock merchandise to make room for more donations this fall!
 Join us for our overstock sale. All items are priced to sell.
See what hidden gems you can uncover

    Saturday, September 15th from 10 am to 2 pm
Dress for Success Ottawa boutique
1339 Wellington Street West (corner of Ross Avenue).
 Basement entrance from the back parking lot.
Please bring your own shopping bags to take home your treasures.

* All profits will go toward Dress for Success Ottawa National
Capital Region operations. Only cash will be accepted.

Thank you for your support and see you at the Boutique!

Curious about what we're selling? Here's a sneak peak of some of my favourite pieces:

Et pour la pièce de résistance , a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress (size 6).  I envision some rock, paper, scissor battles over this one!

  4. What a wonderful place to work............the rack of scarves alone is quite impressive! Hope all is well and good luck on the sale. My Mom volunteers at her church's basement. Same type of thing but free clothes for the whole family. I have been steadily donating to her cause!

  5. I so wish I could come! but I am working : (


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
