Pop Up Shop benefiting Women & Children First is returning to Little Rock for a third year!
The event, dubbed the most upscale retail re-sale event in Little Rock, features some of the city’s most prestigious boutiques who donate new clothes and accessories to the event, as well as ask their customers to purge their wardrobes for some wonderful gently worn items for the sale. Items include designer purses, men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, evening gowns, plus home accessories and furniture. This year, the sale will be popping up at 5709 Cantrell Road, the old Hancock Fabrics location.
The Peacekeepers, WCF’s young professionals group, is the force behind the event. They have been gathering clothes from boutiques such as Vesta’s, B. Barnett, Tulips, Companions, and so many more, and pricing the items to sell! The event has expanded this year to also include furniture and home accessories from stores like Hank’s Furniture and Eggshells. As you shop, you will find items from designers such as Tory Burch, Valentino, Carolina Herrera, Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo, Oscar de la Renta, and more. Outfits like this sneak peek – which includes an Alice & Olive Velvet Military Jacket ($18), 7 Jeans ($8), and Chanel boots ($35) – are waiting for you to add to your wardrobe!
As if the amazing steals at Pop Up Shop were not enough, all of the money raised through the event is used to support the programs and services at Women & Children First, Arkansas’ largest domestic violence shelter. WCF has been working for over 40 years empower all victims of domestic violence and their children to live independently and free from domestic violence by providing crisis intervention, safe shelter, social/legal advocacy, and support services. Last year, over $35,000 was raised at Pop Up Shop to help WCF continue to provide these services at no cost to the hundreds of guests who come through the shelter each year.
