Bounce Around

Bounce Around is a quarterly shopping event hosted by several Portland metro area resale and consignment stores to bring awareness to shopping sustainably while supporting nonprofit organizations that are doing their part toward creating a more sustainable environment. The first Bounce Around event happens October 5-6 during our normal business hours.

Gather Resale and other participating stores will have textile recycling available during the event, along with information about shoe and clothing repair. Gather Resale will also have a special presentation, “How Sustainable Fashion is Supported through Resale Shopping." This 30-minute conversation will be repeated on October 5 and 6 from 1:00-1:30. We will cover expert tips on how to sell and buy resale fashion so you can look good while doing good as you create your best wardrobe yet. Much of the information comes from our recent book club discussion of The Conscious Closet by Elizabeth Cline.

Each Bounce Around store will sell raffle tickets (1 for $5, 5 for $20) for a basket of their own design. All raffle ticket proceeds will be donated to Friends of Trees! The basket at Gather Resale basket contains shop favorites from Missionary Chocolates, Mad Sass, Claws Out, Rx Letterpress and Christa Pierce, plus a $50 Gather Resale gift card! Don’t miss your opportunity to win this basket.

Participating stores include:
Consign Couture (Lake Oswego)
Here We Go Again (Both Portland locations)
Little Roo’s (Lake Oswego)
Gather Resale (St. Johns)
GHM Boutique (Beaverton)
The Silver Lining Consignment Clothier (Sellwood)
