Shop Local Retailers and Help Flood Relief Organizations

It's amazing to see some of our favorite Stella stores and vintage dealers graciously offering to donate percentages of their sales to flood relief efforts throughout the month of May.  The outpouring of generosity I have seen and heard of this week is just astounding.  It makes me very proud to be a part of this community.  Shop these stores this weekend, volunteer if you can, donate if you can, conserve water and don't forget your Mom this Sunday! 
Goodbuy Girls are collecting vintage and contemporary clothing donations.  Proceeds from these collected items will go to the Community Foundation of Middle TN.  Drop off any fashion goods including dresses, purses, shoes, etc., this Saturday from 9am-6pm at their store at 307 N. 16th St. next to Alegria.  Please click HERE for more details.

Speaking of Alegria, now through Sunday, 10% of every purchase will be donated to flood relief programs.

The Hip Zipper will be collecting household items, clothing and pet items throughout the month of May. These items will be delivered daily to those organizations who need them.  Also 25% of all profits will be donated to flood relief efforts, specifically Hands on Nashville.  Please click HERE for a detailed list of items the Hip Zipper will collect. 

Two Elle is our Stella Spotlight store this month. So print out your Two Elle coupon and take any clothing donations you have to the store this weekend.  Don't have a Two Elle coupon?  Check your Inbox for a Stella email or if you're not on our email list, sign up and we'll send it to you!

Update! For every exclusive Two Elle "Nashville" t-shirt sold, Rachel will donate an item of clothing to flood victims.  Shirts are only $25!

Online, check out jewelry designer, Freshie & Zero.  Congratulations to Freshie Beth who just had a baby!!  Her website shop is closed until June while she is on maternity leave, but she has listed a number of items on her Etsy site.  50% of all Etsy sales during May will go to flood relief efforts.
For the next 30 days (well, 28 now), Troubadour Vintage will donate 30% of each purchase to flood relief. 
Closet Case Vintage will donate 10% of each purchase to the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee through May 15.  Carmen wrote a great blog today which you can read HERE.  She posted a few heartbreaking photos of the city and also featured some awesome new items she has up for sale at her Etsy shop.
For more information on where you can volunteer or make donations, please refer to this post from Nashvillest.  It is the most comprehensive list out there and they continually update it.
As I finish this post, tonight's Flood Relief Telethon just ended.  $1.7 million was raised.  Yazoo and Imogene + Willie each raised $6,000 at their respective events tonight and last night the Mercy Lounge raised over $11,000.  Truly amazing.
Keep supporting these events and keep supporting your community!  We are Nashville.
