Thrift Shop of Aspen to host pop-up sale featuring Boogie’s retail items

Staff report

Thanks to the generosity of Boogie Weinglass, the Thrift Shop of Aspen will be selling all the remaining inventory from his Boogie’s Retail Store in a special pop-up sale at 308 E. Hopkins Ave., the former Ute City Bar and Grill on restaurant row.

The sale begins today from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., repeating at the same time Friday and Saturday.

It will include designer jeans, boots, shoes, T-shirts and children’s clothing, all at bargain prices.

The Thrift Shop credits J.P’s Nevada Trust, Charlie Weaver and Ruth Kruger for making the space available for the pop-up sale.

All proceeds from the sale will go to nonprofits in the community. The Thrift Shop of Aspen was founded in 1949 and continues its tradition of being an all-volunteer, all-women organization, now with more than 130 volunteers (and always seeking more). In 2015, the Thrift Shop’s grant and scholarship programs awarded more than $580,000 to nonprofit organizations throughout the Roaring Fork Valley.

“Boogie’s gift to the Thrift Shop is a huge gift to the community,” said Thrift Shop of Aspen Treasurer Lynda MacCarthy. “We are excited to be able to offer this amazing designer clothing to locals and visitors alike, and especially grateful for this fantastic boost to our grant making and scholarships. Thank you, Boogie!”
