Remember Nora’s posts about her whole house purge and the brand new closet? Not only did it make Nora very happy, it brought to life an idea to benefit others.
Nora generously shares recaps of her trips to the Kentucky Derby — one of her favorite annual events. (Click the links to refresh your memory of the 2013 and 2014 races. ) Many years she’s worn gorgeous, custom-made hats by Penny Rieck that add even more flair and elegance to the experience.
As she cleared out and moved her closet, Nora realized that her collection of Derby Hats was just too big for the space and thought it might be fun to raise some money for charity by auctioning them off. Over the next week or so she is partnering with Turn the Page Bookstore on eight ebay auctions of the hats to benefit the Shepherdstown (WV) Public Library.
