The Pop Up Shop is the most unique fundraiser Little Rock has ever seen. This first-time event is a fundraiser to benefit Women & Children First: The Center Against Domestic Violence.   

Several of the WCF Board Members have closets full of clothes, donations and even more items as we are planning a thrift store in the future. In a casual conversation we were talking about having a “Flash Sale” – a one or two day event to sell these lovely “gently “worn clothes to raise money for the shelter. 

As our enthusiasm grew, we asked our past “Women of the Year” to purge their closets as well for this event. This idea caught on like crazy. The best dressed women in Little Rock all wanted to participate. Then we took it a step further and asked some of the coolest clothing stores in the city if they would like to give us new clothes, shoes, purses, and accessories to sell.

The flash sale turned into “The Pop-Up Shop.” The brands are amazing: Versace, Escada, Lafayette 148, Ralph Lauren. Michael Kors, Chloe, Fontana Couture, Dolce & Gabbana, Eileen Fisher, Elie Tahari and so many more! All these new and “gently worn” clothes will be sold at ridiculously low prices. Fabulous ball gowns that originally retailed for several hundred dollars are now available for less than $100.00. The retail price tags are still a lot of the clothes and many are NOW priced at 10% of the original retail.

The sale is an all-day event on Saturday, September 13 starting t 8 am and ending at 6 pm. The sale event will take place at the Verizon Office Park on Riverdale in Building 3. Best of all - admission is free! But if you want a sneak peek and first dibs on all the great deals, check out the “Shop and Sip” event on Friday night. Tickets are just $25 – proceeds benefit WCF. In addition to great deals, there will be wine and hor d’ourves. 

Watch us on KATV Channel 7 on Good morning Arkansas on Sept 11th where we will be showing some of the couture bargains.
