New Hope Midcoast will hold its 10th annual Shop for Hope (Pop Up Shop) sale of new and gently used clothing for adults and children Thursday through Saturday, August 25-27 at the Flanagan Center in Rockland.
This year’s event will feature designer clothes from Eileen Fisher and Jill McGowan, as well as clothing from participating boutiques including Barefoot in Denim, Black Parrot, fourTWELVE, Leonard’s and Portland Dry Goods. New this year are children’s items, household items and gender-neutral clothing.
Also new this year are two VIP events: from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 25 and from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. on Friday, August 26. Both options include elegant and light snacks and drinks, and require tickets available by donation of $150, $50, or $25. All ticket buyers will receive a reusable bag containing samples of local products from companies such as Bixby Chocolates, Fiore Artisan Olive Oils and Vinegars and Sugar and Spice Farms.
