Cure Thrift Shop marks its sixth year in operation next Friday with live music, an open bar, a raffle and dashing duds. Liz Wolff, founder of the East Village vintage haven, says it has been stockpiling its most exciting inventory for months so that party-goers can purchase them at the party.
Tickets go for $15 in advance on Cure’s website or $20 at the door, and all proceeds from the party, like all proceeds from the shop itself, go to juvenile diabetes research.
Rest assured, this is no small-time shindig: 450 people showed up to the last party Cure threw in 2011.
Plus, this is your chance to see the store’s bright new look. “We recently renovated the shop, so it’s a totally different look and feel,” Wolff says. “It used to be more furniture and household items, and now it’s kind of a mix of furniture and clothing. But we’ve completely revamped the store. It’s newly painted, newly decorated, and it’s really awesome inside.”
