Everything Must Go from the Designers’ Vignettes
ARF, you look fabulous for 40. You only get better with age. Your shop in Sagaponack has never looked better than this Memorial Day weekend, all decked out from a makeover by seven top designers. In each room a designer created a vignette from thrift store donations, as well as his or her own personal collections. All the items in the room were for sale. Paintings, rugs, chairs, sofas, lamps, you name it, it had a tag. And they were going fast as soon as the show opened. In fact, while we were there, someone bought an entire suite of wicker furniture right out from under us!
The occasion was the fourth annual Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons Thriftshop Designer Showhouse and Sale, held to raise money to support the good work done by ARF in rescuing pets. It coincided with ARF’s 40th anniversary.
Fern Mallis was the Honorary Chair of the event, while Gordon Hoppe, Gigi Mahon and Sandra McConnell were chairs, and Peter Hallock and Lisa McCarthy were vice chairs.
The Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons actively rescues cats and dogs, provides quality care and offers sanctuary until loving homes can be found. If would like like to make a donation, follow this link.
