Get ready to shop ‘til you drop.
She Shoe Swaps is a unique charity event that gives women a chance to donate those nearly new or gently used shoes, boots and handbags from their closets.
Donor names are entered for draw prizes from wonderful local businesses for flowers, movie passes, spa treats and more.
Ladies then shop the one-day sale blitz, held this year on Saturday, May 12 – always the day before Mother’s Day. All the proceeds from the event go to two local causes: the SAFE Society and Rosemarie’s Fund held by the Shuswap Community Foundation. In 2017, $10,800 was raised for the two charities to share.
Each year the sale gets bigger and better. On Saturday, May 12, the sale doors will open at 9 a.m. at the Okanagan College Salmon Arm campus. Most items are $10 per pair or purse, while boots are $15.
