For once, you can buy pretty things for yourself and feel 100 percent certain in the aftermath that you’re not just a consumerist dweeb, you’re also someone who cares about the homelessness crisis in New York City. All proceeds made at this pop-up shopping event go The Bowery Mission, which depends enormously on donations and volunteers to help them feed the hundreds of thousands of men, women, and kids they feed each year (not to mention the tens of thousands of people the charity provides with shelter, clothing, and other kinds of essential services). You can find all sorts of amazing stuff at the event– it’s all donated vintage, designer, and vintage designer, all of which are recycled and priced affordably. But even if you’re not so sure a price tag is doable, the organizers say they’re “always up for a barter. Follow the pop-up on Instagram @LESamisNYC .
