Bargains Await At Johns Hopkins’ Spring/Summer Best Dressed Sale
BALTIMORE (WJZ)—If you’re looking for bargains on spring and summer clothes, have we got a sale for you. It happens Wednesday right here in Baltimore.
Ron Matz has more on the big event which benefits Johns Hopkins Hospital.
They’re buzzing in Baltimore about the spring/summer Best Dressed Sale at the Carriage House at Evergreen.
It’s a benefit sponsored by the Women’s Board of Johns Hopkins Hospital.
“The Women’s Board has been around more than 80 years. The Best Dressed Sale started in the early 70s in someone’s home, and here we are all 40 some years later,” said Barbara Dover, president of the Women’s Board at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Laurie Long is one of the many volunteers who says come on down, the price is right.
“We have some wonderful spring and summer clothing for women and men. I’m wearing a Calvin Klein dress for $12. All dresses are $12. I have a beaded bracelet for $5 and a beaded necklace for $3. You can’t beat the prices,” Long said.
They have great deals on prom dresses.
“We have a nice selection of prom dresses. We have all sorts of different colors, and they’re just $20. We also have graduation dresses. These dresses also go for just $20. It’s hard to beat these prices,” said Anne Robothan, volunteer.
And there are big bargains for men too. All ties are just five bucks. Dress shirts are only $10.
“We have our annual fall Best Dressed Sale. This year it will be Halloween weekend. This is the third time we’ve thought about doing a spring sale,” Dover said. “Our spring sale is at Evergreen and it will be tomorrow from 8:30 until 4 with wonderful spring values; very much what you’re used to with our fall sale.”
All the money raised goes to Hopkins.
“We divide our money between the clinical departments that have to do with patient care, and we also fund a full scholarship each year for the School of Medicine and the School of Nursing,” Dover said.
Styling for summer….
“The prices here are magnificent. Men’s shirts are $10. Women’s shirts are $10. Women’s dresses $12. Lots and lots of clothes and wonderful prices,” Long said.
The Evergreen Museum is located on North Charles Street near Cold Spring Lane. Last fall’s Best Dressed Sale raised more than $200,000 for Hopkins.
