Shopping for a cause


Pam Older, the Larchmont-based jewelry designer who’s been featured in WAG (November 2011), has let us know about her latest effort – and it combines her jewelry with a most worthy cause.

Older is one of the local artisans, authors and entrepreneurs participating in a Holiday Gift Boutique that will benefit the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force.

The event will run from 3 to 8 p.m. Dec. 5 at Vintage 1891 in Larchmont.

Among the other participants are:

Lori Greenblatt’s Tiny Treasures – featuring costume jewelry, gifts and accessories for all occasions;

Carrie Bell’s Madcapz – fabulous caps and visors designed just for women;

Elka Raved’s Triple Sweet Earrings – 14k and 18k gold earrings for girls;

Jill Simpson’s Bespoke Custom Gifts – hand-selected, stylish gifts that can be personalized;

Sheryl McSherry’s stocking stuffers;

Joy Newton Designs – exquisite botanical illustrations featured in note cards and prints;

Flowers by Marna – distinctive flowers and wreaths;

Kathy Rutsch’s hand-built pottery;

Priscilla Warner’s books (Faith Club and Learning to Breathe) and spiritual accessories; and

Cash for Gold by LaGravinese Jewelers of Pelham.

Each vendor is donating a percentage of the evening’s sales to the Larchmont Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force. Also known as the Food Pantry, it is an all-volunteer organization that provides food to more than 1,200 Larchmont and Mamaroneck residents twice each month.

Admission is free, although donations are welcome.

The evening will also include savory nibbles, a cash bar and music performed by students from the Larchmont Music Academy.

Vintage 1891 is at 2098 Boston Post Road.
