It’s already been a tough winter — near-blizzards, total blizzards — so we’re pleased to announce that Housing Works’ annual Spring Preview sales kick off this weekend to help pull you through. Every winter, we stockpile donations of spring merchandise and unveil the best items at separate “preview” sales at each of our locations.
This year we’re featuring an unprecedented ten preview sales because our new store in Hells Kitchen is opening mid March (stay tuned for more details). And of course, our shopping website, Shophousingworks.com, will host its own virtual Spring Preview. Spring 2010 featured goodies include:
Zac Posen print dress: $250
Catherine Malandrino limited edition clutch: $150
Robert Rodriguez silk cocktail dress: $65
Le Corbusier sling chair: $450
Etro men’s button down shirt: $55
COST OF ENTRY: Entry to each sale is $10 at the door; however, entry to all sales is free for Housing Works members. //www.shophousingworks.com/membership.cfm/”>Join today, or become a member at a Housing Works Thrift Shop location the same day on which that location is holding a preview and still get in free!
