From a press release:
“WHO/WHAT: This holiday season, everyone will get the chance to pay it forward by donating gently worn or new winter coats and accessories to three local charities while shopping one of a kind local art and vintage clothing. To continue their mission of building community by enhancing experiences through art & design and creating unique connections, Swatchroom is launching COMMON THREAD, celebrating what connects everybody through their ability to provide for each other individually and collectively. Designed to offer an accessible and sustainable retail experience focused on giving new life to gently used clothing, footwear & accessories while supporting the local community.
Curated vintage men’s and women’s clothing and one of a kind sneakers can also be shopped during a special vintage and bespoke resale. Artwork by local artists like mixed media artist Nicole Salimbene, sculptor & painter Michael West, and photographer Violetta Markelou, will be available for purchase during an exciting art exhibition.
Clothing Drive – All clothing donations will benefit N Street Village, Central Union Mission and Women Giving Back.
Vintage & Bespoke Resale – With retail partners Los Gitanos Vintage, Gary Williams Jr., Tribute Collective, Victor Nguyen-Long & Violetta Markelou
Art Exhibition – With artist partners Nicole Salimbene, mixed media artist; Michael West, sculptor and painter; and Violetta Markelou, photographer
