This Saturday Sarah’s store will host their 4th annual Charity Yard Sale,  where you’ll be able to snag some amazing finds for only a toonie (no joke)! Think anything from Old Navy to Burberry… you just never know what you’ll find burried in those bins! For the third year in a row Room 152 will be supporting the IWK Foundation, a charity that means a heck of a lot to Sarah. In 2003, her son Jacob was a patient there after being born just shy of 25 weeks, weighing a little under 2 lbs. After some major time spent in the hospital and a few years of regular follow up, Jacob is now a 14 year old strapping lad who’s almost as tall as his 6′ tall mama. Needless to say, Sarah is incredibly grateful to the IWK and the amazing people who helped Jacob in his early start. Holding the yard sale is just a small way of saying thank you!

Fill it up!

Last year Room 152 raised $4000 and are hoping to beat that total by far! They receive donations year round from their generous consigners and customers, but are still in need of clothing, shoes and accessory donations to sell at the event. So clean out those closets, and give them a hand in kicking last year’s butt! Anything goes, including brands they normally don’t take in store. Donations can be dropped off to the Room 152 (152 Portland Street, Dartmouth) anytime before 5:00 p.m. Friday (May 11th). We thank you so much in advance XO!

Summer to Fall

It’s September 1st, and it’s beginning to feel a lot like Fall here on the East Coast! Time to start thinking about putting away your Summer go-to’s, and breaking out those cozy knits and pants. If you’re a bit stressed about the damage a whole new Fall wardrobe will have on the bank account, don’t fret! We’re convinced that most summer pieces can be transitioned into the colder months with a couple of quick add-ons! Throw a cardi over that tank, or pair booties with that dress for a new look fit for Fall. You’ll prolong the wear time of those Summer favs, and get a big high five from wallet while you’re at it! Below are a couple of our favourite transition looks to give you a little inspiration :).

Happy Labour Day Weekend!
