thrifting for a good cause: housing works’ design on a dime benefit

As the weather warms our homes go through their annual purge and renew process. Out with the old and tired! In with the new — or new old — things we will cherish. Those of you in the NYC area may want to make some extra room for a new item; Housing Work’s annual Design on a Dime is coming up on April 25th. Featuring curated vignettes from designers like Evette Rios, Sabrina Soto and Lara Spencer, the proceeds from the event benefit Housing Works new development in Brooklyn, the Hull Street Residence for homeless adults living with HIV/AIDS. As you can see from the photos above, last year’s event was chock-a-block full of swanky items from lamps, rugs, and even hefty pieces like couches. Early birds with deep pockets can buy tickets to the opening night reception ($200), and the rest can shop on Friday and Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm at the Metropolitan Pavilion on 125 W. 18th Street.
