My great friend and personal hair stylist Charlene Boggins opened her own salon in my hometown Veazie, Maine about two years ago. She is not only a certified Vidal Sassoon hair stylist, but she also specializes in treating women going through medical hair loss due to chemotherapy or other medical conditions. She helps women through the whole process of hair loss which can be very traumatic for most. Charlene also supplies beautiful scarves and gorgeous wigs which she trims and styles to each clients specification.
Charlene wants to also be able to help women who may not be able to afford a wig or her services. That is why she has introduced
The Nourish Salon & Spa Angel Fund.
Charlene and I came up with the idea to hold a Clothing Swap twice a year to benefit her Angel Fund. We are very excited about this event and we plan on making it a huge success!
Below, you will find your official invite.

P.S. I had so much fun helping Charlene style and merchandise her salon for this :)
And below you will find the letter that we sent out to clarify some of the details of the Clothing Swap:
We just wanted to send you all a little note to explain some of the small details about the clothing swap that is taking place on Tuesday October 14, 2014 at 6:00 pm at Machias Savings Bank in Brewer. The admission is $15 and all of the proceeds go to The Nourish Salon and Spa Angel Fund which helps to provide services and luxury wigs for cancer patients as well as patients experiencing medical hair loss.
You will want to arrive promptly at 6:00 pm the evening of the event. Bring a reasonable amount of clothing and/or accessories that are in fabulous condition that you no longer want in your wardrobe. All size ranges are welcome! We have decided to NOT put a limit on how many items you can bring to the swap. Just make sure it’s not a truckload or anything. One or two big garbage bags or boxes is plenty. Please make sure you arrive promptly at 6:00 pm with your items so that we have time to set everything out before we officially begin the swap at 7:00 pm. We will not be putting a limit on how many items you can take home. Anything that is left at the end of the evening will be donated to a local charity unless you would like to take it back home with you.
We hope this clarifies everything! Please let us know if you have any more questions. This will be so much fun and it will be so great to meet and mingle with each other!
See you on October 14th!
Laura Michaud & Charlene Boggins
