BELFAST — On Saturday, Sept. 10, from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 11, from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., Nealley Van Horne and Carey Dube will be holding a women’s clothing sale in downtown Belfast, on Miller Street, in between Cross and Front Street.
The sale idea was born of a response to the overturning of Roe V. Wade.
“We want to express that women’s rights are human rights and those rights extend to our bodies and what we choose to do with them,” said a news release.
All proceeds from the sale will be sent as a donation to the Maine faction of Planned Parenthood.
“We’ve had an amazing response from the community and over 75 men and women have contributed clothing, shoes, accessories, and the myriad of necessities to make an event like this come to fruition, even including the actual location,” said the release.
An outdoor boutique will be created where ladies of all shapes, sizes, and income levels can feel welcome and special in their shopping experience.
There will also be locally made and donated organic lip balm, two styles of T-shirts designed just for the event, baked goods, gourmet popcorn, fancy granola, beverages, and a grill going for Peruvian chicken skewers and Thai pork skewers.
The location of the sale is split into two levels. The upper level will consist of the food, T-shirts and donated items (100% of the proceeds from all of this will go to the cause). The lower level is where the independent sellers are located.
Six women have signed up to sell their personal new and used clothing, including a LulaRoe distributor. These women will be setting up their own tables and racks and 50% of proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood.
What doesn’t sell will be donated to The Bangor Homeless Shelter, New Hope for Women, Threads of Hope, and Heavenly Threads.
“This sale promises to be a good time, a fun way to raise awareness, with great deals and a lot of money going to a worthy cause,” said the release.
