Starting today in New York City, the public is invited to the Society Boutique (also known as the Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s thrift shop on the Upper East Side) for Winter Wonderland, an annual holiday sale that “presents the perfect opportunity to find gifts for the design enthusiasts on your holiday shopping list,” according to Martha Glass, president of the society. The event features a curated collection of gifts, home goods, toys and luxury accessories.
"The best part is that gifts from The Society Boutique give twice, as all proceeds support The Society’s patient care programs at MSK," said Glass.
This year’s sale features pre-owned, donated items like Baccarat crystal, Louis XVI furniture, silver cocktail sets, Art Nouveau and Art Deco design accents, jewelry by Julie Vos and luxury coats by Gerard Darel.
Here’s a look at some highlights of this year’s sale:
Polished Chrome and Green Eight-Piece Cordial Set from the 1930s, $295
Silver-Plated Art Deco Eight-Piece Cocktail Set from the 1920s, $250
Baccarat Vase, $1950
Louis XVI-Style Bench, $495
The store will be open daily through Dec. 24 from 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., except on Sundays, when it will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Proceeds will support The Society of MSK’s quest to promote the well-being of cancer patients, support cancer research, and provide public education on the early prevention, detection and treatment of cancer.
The Society Boutique MSK Thrift Shop is located at 1440 Third Avenue (between 81st and 82nd streets) in Manhattan.
