Get thee to shopping Maddie! Madeline Weinrib, that is. For the first time, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Thrift Shop on Manhattan's Upper East Side is teaming up with the global goods guru Madeline Weinrib to sell her high-design rugs, pillows, fabric, furniture and accessories at deeply discounted prices.  I do whatever I can to support this wonderful charity, and succeeded in raising over $7,000 for my March Cycle For Survival Ride with the generous support you all provided. So, any chance I get to pitch in, I do.
Occurring this Friday May 3rd beginning at 10am, the brightly-hued sale will run until Sunday May 5th till 6pm. The entire shop will be turned into a chic global bazaar of sorts, filled with her designs from Morocco, Asia and India. Head on over to 1440 3rd Avenue between 81st and 82nd Street to score colorful patterned accessories, just in time for a spring freshening.

This is really a nice way to help. My friend went here and she said there are plenty of unique and beautiful items. Too bad I wasn't able to come. I hope there will be more. It is very nice to support this kind of event.

Madeline Weinrib is such a great inspiration to me. Love her pillows. She inspired me to launch mine. Her designs are absolutely fabulous
