Best Dressed Sale opens with Thursday Preview Party

When the 43rd annual Johns Hopkins Best Dressed Sale and Boutique opens its doors this week at Evergreen Carriage House, shoppers will once again find a wide array of gently worn and some new designer dresses, contemporary fashions, vintage apparel, furs, accessories, shoes, wedding gowns and men’s suits, coats, jackets, formal wear and ties.

“Not only can you be green by buying recycled and vintage clothing, you can save some green in your wallet,” says Pam Hindsley, co-chair of the event. “Buying secondhand clothing can be fashionable at the same time.”

The sale begins with the Preview Party from 4 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 30, for shopping and light refreshments; admission is $40 in advance, $55 at the door. General sale days (free admission) are Friday, Oct. 1, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 2, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, Oct. 3, noon to 4 p.m. (most items half-price).

The fundraiser is sponsored by the Women’s Board of The Johns Hopkins Hospital. All proceeds from the event, which in recent years raised $150,000, will support patient care. For more information, go to www
