More Goodies for Good Causes



Purse (black leather): $2, metal choker: $3, Arabic coin earrings: $2, wooden-cross necklace: $1. I gave $8 dollars for this loot, and my generous, big spending goes entirely to the Dekalb Rape Crisis Center.

About twice a year, the Dekalb Rape Crisis Center holds a jewelry sale in downtown Decatur at the community bandstand. Nothing is over $3 dollars. I've gotten some pretty sweet deals in the past, and today was the day to secondhand shop again- in the name of a great cause (assisting victims of sexual assault and to educate the public on sexual crimes).

Locals, you can drop off your unwanted jewelry, bags and scarves, and the DeKalb Rape Crisis Center will sell it at their next sale come September. They don't keep any of the money because all the ladies running the show are volunteers. Pretty incredible, huh?

Non-locals, you can probably ship your unwanted goods to DRCC or you can donate to the cause here. DeKalb (pronounced dee-cab) is our county, and a very welcoming one at that. Next time you are in the south east, stop on by!



This is how I wore my two new necklaces. That sweater is another sweet Tracy Feith steal from Target. Full outfit shot to come.

what a great charity event! there's nothing better than shopping for a cause. and your finds look great!

the photographs from my art hist exam were horses in motion i think? I wikipedia'd it the other day. it somehow changed how people painted horses because they didn't know what way horses legs moved prior to that photography series. & I'd really love to study art history in college next year too!

Shopping must feel EXTRA good when you know your dollars are supporting such an important cause.

Can't beat a wooden cross for a buck. Plus if you run into vampires you'll be all set.


That Feith cardigan looks sweet.
