If you’re anything like me, you likely daydream about treating yourself to a shopping trip for a nice new dress to wear to work or for an upcoming date night out on the town. Whatever the special occasion may be, that little voice creeps into your head that says, “You know you don’t need more clothing. That money is best spent elsewhere or better yet, you should just save it.”
Then I discovered Promises Charity Boutique—a trendy, upscale shop where my purchases are something I can feel good about. As I buy high-end, name-brand luxury items to add to my closet, they come at a very pocket-friendly price, creating a win-win situation for all involved. You see, by shopping at Promises Charity Boutique, every item of clothing is linked to a charity. So, when you buy, you’re giving a donation to the charity attached to the item. Every purchase you make is a direct donation to a specific cause, be it Funacáncer, FundAyuda, Casita de Mausi, Luz&Vida, or Cruz Blanca Panameña, just to name a few.
Prior to moving here to Panamá, I lived in several, trendy big cities across the United States—Los Angeles, New York, and most recently, New Orleans. One thing I loved most about living in these big cities was the big wins I’d make when shopping the local thrift stores. From my go-to being the hot and hip Buffalo Exchange, to other staples such as Goodwill, Crossroads, and Plato’s Closet, wherever a secondhand shop would pop up, I would be sure to visit. The items I’d find would be in prime condition, for a fraction of the original price. Who can say no to a bargain like that?
With Promises Charity Boutique, this amazing thrift shop takes secondhand clothing one step further. Actually, two steps. Not only are they strictly high-end, luxury clothing, but they are 100% charity-based. And if you haven’t visited the shop, you must! The featured clothing for sale is immaculate, and the low prices will result in your need to retrieve your jaw from the floor in the very best way.
Don’t take my word for it, though. Have a look for yourself. Visit this lovely boutique located in the amazing San Francisco neighborhood, and you will be so glad you did. As will your closet, and your wallet, and the charity you are directly contributing to via your purchase.
I don’t know about you, but this is one divine opportunity for feel-good retail therapy that I cannot turn down. Without further ado, I’ll bid you adieu, and see you at Promises Charity Boutique.
