Annual Events

There are SOME events that are TOO good to miss!

Lydia Place’s Handbags for Housing Event (June 2018)

The mission of Lydia Place is to support sustained independence of Whatcom families in need, by providing housing, supportive services, advocacy, education, and by raising awareness of the faces and causes of homelessness. They do such important work and we support them 100%!

For the last few years, Lydia Place has done a fundraiser that involves a fashion show, handbags for sale, fabulous refreshments (cocktails and other great snacks), AND a lot of FUN!  2018 was their 6th year to throw this fabulous shindig (Alice in Wonderland ‘Mad Hatter’ theme) and we were once again excited to participate!

Check out some of the fun photos of our participation.



Social Fabric’s Annual Sidewalk/Clean Out Your Closet Sale (mid to late July)

2018 “Clean-Out Your Closet” Sidewalk Sale – July 20th – Sunday, July 22nd (Click here for FULL details)

Sidewalk Sale

If we had a nickel for every time someone has told us they really needed to ‘clean out their closet’ before they could buy more clothes – well, we’d be millionaires!  So we decided to give you all the opportunity to do just that. CLEAN OUT YOUR CLOSET!  Collect the items (clothes, shoes, hats, handbags, accessories & jewelry) and bring them in to Social Fabric and we’ll throw a HUGE “garage-type” sale.

Starting mid-July, in the week leading up to the sale, we’ll invite you to bring in a limited number of items (garments, shoes, accessories and/or jewelry) and you will get a 25% discount* on anything in the Social Fabric boutique (except consigned items).  Sorry, we do not accept any household items.

The sale is scheduled to coincide with the annual Downtown Sidewalk Sale and Commercial Street Night Market (usually held the third Friday of the month) and continue through the next day (Saturday).

2018 “Clean-Out Your Closet” Sidewalk Sale is Friday, July 20th – Sunday, July 22nd. (Click here for FULL details)

But, here’s the BEST PART, the proceeds from the sale are split this way:  50% goes to Lydia Place and The Agape Home respecively, 25% goes BACK to you, and 25% goes to Social Fabric!

You don’t have to be present to participate in the sale and you don’t have to clean out your closet to shop it!  So plan on joining us in this crazy, FUN Sidewalk/Clean Out Your Closet sale in 2018!

*25% Discount is for one item in the Social Fabric boutique. You have up to 1 year to redeem your discount. Does not include consigned items or items on sale.
