Pop Up: Shop for a Cause

Our fellow biz owner and friend is hosting her first ever pop up shop next weekend, and it's going to be a good one--in oh so many ways. Always wanting to plan an event for community outreach and sale purposes, Courtney now has the opportunity to host her first pop-up shop event. Cash in the Closet started as a small online boutique specializing in hard-to-find clothing and accessories, and since its launch in 2004 has now become one of the leading fashion consignment and online retail boutiques on California’s central coast. Keeping in mind current trends, Cash in the Closet's owner, Courtney, specializes in designer apparel, accessories, and collections that suit every style. 

This pop-up shop will be a three day event located at 2146 Parker Street, SLO: May 29Friday will be an exclusive VIP 'Sneak N' Peak 5-8pm, then open to everyone Saturday, May 3010-4pm and Sunday, May 31, 12-4pm as an all-out public sale.

The purpose of this event is not only to provide designer clothes at a discounted rate to the customers but to also shop for a cause. Twenty percent of all profits will go towards the non-profit organization, Jack's Helping Hand. This local nonprofit's goal is to financially, mentally and physically help children and their families overcome the stress when one is diagnosed with cancer, has a disability or is severely ill. Courtney wanted to make sure that this event's benefits extend beyond the customers and her boutique. By sharing a portion of proceeds, she--and her customers--know they contributed toward their community and the well-being of others while still shopping for their favorite designer clothes. 

Not only is this event extending to locals shoppers and nonprofit, it is also reaching to the students. As a graduating Communication Studies major at Cal Poly, Samantha Brisbon's career goal is to be an event coordinator/planner. After meeting Courtney, she allowed Samantha to be her event coordinator for this pop up as part of her senior project. This opportunity has not only put her Communication skills to the test but has shown her what she can accomplish, given her new experiences and revealed the many things still to learn in a professional career. The coordinating process has been a phenomenal experience already in contributing to the  success of this event.

We hope to see you there!
