Diversifying Our Fairytales
By Christine Stoddard
Frugalistas in all shapes and forms--from hippies to punks to vagabonds--can't complain about great prices that support a great cause. In Richmond, VA, the first such shop that comes to many locals' minds is Diversity Thrift, founded by The Richmond Gay Community Foundation in 1999. With "the goal of supporting Central Virginia's lesbian, bisexual and transgender people," Diversity also provides shoppers with bargains on clothes, furniture, housewares, and bricolage. Diversity has raised a whopping $5 million since 2000 for non-profits whose projects benefit the LGBT community.
In relation to Quail Bell, Diversity has been kind enough to lend us several pieces for our "Once Upon a Dream" fashion show on October 16th. Check out all the bizarre and fantastical fashion we have in store for you, courtesy of Richmond's only rainbow-painted store!
