Y do I love this place....

This summer have been volunteering at Fringues & Cie- this is a thrift shop in the YWCA in downtown Montreal. A lot of my clothes are purchased at Fringues & Cie, I always find that little something missing in my closet or that great piece that you absolutely have to purchase which for me is every week!

Fringues & Cie is a non- lucrative organization helping women to insert the workplace.
The ladies get a paid work experience and a complete training in customer service.
Money spent at Fringues & Cie will finance activities that will promote socioprofessionnal insertion.
 I loved volunteering at Fringues &Cie this summer especially because Ericka who is in charge of the thrift shop is such a sweet lady.
 I bought that night a wonderful lace dress that I will remix with all kind of funky pieces , a snake pattern skirt that can be worn every season-  and a sweater with an ethnic pattern.
 Can wait to see more Fall clothing in the store, they already put out some pieces, and I will surely be there often!

The pics were taken with my reflex and then treated with the App Camera +
I was wearing that night –
Top – Lush – Winners - Montreal
Skirt – Fringues et Cie (YWCA Montreal)
Sandals – Ardene

Enjoy the pics - Ariane  xxxxxx

What a wonderful-looking shop! I adore the lace dress (and your co-worker's expression). Your striped top looks fab too.

Oh my, I would love to volunteer in a place like this...it looks like so much fun. It would be really gratifying to help the women who come in and of course, it is fun to find your own treasures!


me and stephane both agree this post is awesome! Good work mom!
