Last year, we turned you on to one of our favorite places in Dallas to shop for gifts, LAFCO New York in Highland Park Village. They custom matched a cologne for us and we wear it nearly every single day. Sometimes that’s all we wear.
Even our closet smells like a temple of botanical worship thanks to several Santa Maria Novella products stuck in our various nooks and crannies. But what else would you expect from a place officially named Luxury Articles and Fragrance Company?
If you haven’t checked this place out yet, then Saturday is the perfect opportunity. LAFCO is joining forces with Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) Dallas and Gay List Daily to host a Charity Shopping Extravaganza. From 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. this Saturday, April 9, 2011, 20% of all purchases will benefit DIFFA/Dallas. It’s a great reason to do some shopping for graduations, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or just I’m A Queen And I Need Something Pretty Day (a holiday we celebrate far too often). And they’re going to have cocktails, too!
Jon Bresler, founder of the company, will even be on-hand all the way from New York to spend most of the day meeting and greeting customers and offering his expert opinion on fragrance selection (you’ve got to do this!), as well as waxing poetic about all the other products in this charming little boutique. There truly is something here for everyone on your list. Even the little fuzzy ones. (And unless you’re accustomed to buying gifts for your crotch-squatters, we’re talking about dogs.)
Plus, if raising money for DIFFA just by pointing at fabulous little things and swiping your credit card weren’t enough to get you excited, mention Gay List Daily at the time of purchase and get a free gift bag filled with goodies while supplies last, too!
Make sure to tell your friends. The more purchases that are made, the more money we can raise. It’s like a good old-fashioned telethon. Without the usual Jerry Lewis nightmares.
