To say the least, we were excited to host our Thrift and Boast meet-up at this location. When we arrived, we had our donations in hand and ready to learn about their cause. We were greeted by the wonderful, Joy Litton and her staff, at the CHKD at 91 S. Laburnum Avenue, Richmond, VA. They eagerly awaited our arrival and took us on a tour of the store to see how they bring clothes back to resale life. They get donations from all over and are very thankful for the donations as they help fund the Children's Hospital of King's Daughters' mission.
After the tour, we had a timed style challenge which participants were partnered up and had to create a look for a specific season. This was a great time as everyone scurried around looking for specific pieces to complete their looks.

When the time was up all participants brought their outfits to the front and the CHKD staff judged the outfits. Although, everyone did a great job putting things together, there could be only one winner.
Winner: Ann-Michelle and Serena "Summer Summer Summer Time"
Each winner received a $10 cash prize to go towards their purchases. Our meet-ups allow us to understand what goes on behind the scenes, educate ourselves in worthy causes and have some styling fun in the process. Join us for our next event on Saturday, September 13th at 9am. Click Here to sign up.
We hope to see you there!
