It is that time of year we all begin to recognize our good fortunes as well as lend a helping hand to others who need it the most. I realized this when I sat with Jillian Ohriner from Dinosaur and Roses to talk about a new shopping experience that is popping up and looking for your help. Dinosaur and Roses is hosting The Street Shop, which gives those less fortunate a dignified shopping experience for clothes at no charge.This shopping experience was originally created by Max Pazak & Kayli Levitan in January 2014. In less than a year the free pop-up clothing storeÂ has become a movement worldwide; learn their story and view previous pop-up shops at thestreetstore.org. Â
On November 7th 11am-3pm,Â Vegas will be the 50th Street Shop pop-up to emerge at 9th Street and Mesquite Avenue in Downtown Las Vegas, transforming from a deserted lot to a shopping experience open to anyone in need of clothing. Interested? I hope you are nodding! If you have clothing you are looking to part with, donate it to The Street Shop at Dinosaur and Roses located at 4310 E. Tropicana ave. Suite #6-9. They are looking to accommodate women, men, and children of all sizes; winter gear is highly in demand with the colder months approaching. To get more involved, you can donate your time during the event or make an in-kind donation. The Dinosaur and Roses team is very involved in charities in the Vegas community and when they learned about the dignified shopping experience it was a perfect way to use their resources to give back. To get in contact with The Street Shop to volunteer, donate, or for more information, feel free to reach out to Jillian or Michele, their information is provided below. Also, help spread the word about The Street Shop by following them on Facebook and Instagram.
Everyone loves a shopping day, letâ€™s make November 7th a memorable one for those in need.
