Last night, Derek Warburton of Derek Loves Shopping hosted a sparkling evening to open Housing Works' newest shop located right in the middle of New York's Hell's Kitchen. As you may know, Housing Works is one of the most visited thrift shops in the country, where all proceeds from all sales go to help eradicate the double crisis of homelessness and HIV/AIDS. This spectacular benefit chain was also the inspiration for my book The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details.
If you ever find yourself, you'll want to head right to a Housing Works to satisfy your thrift shopping bug, but for the meantime, check out the good shopping online at www.shophousingworks.com.
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
