One Person’s Trash…
One person’s trash is another’s treasure ,so the saying goes for the hundreds of thousands of people who treasure hunt at garage sales nationwide.
Desperate Housewive’s Teri Hatcher knows something about managing a households as the single and fabulous house wife of Wisteria Lane. It maybe from that starring role that she drew inspiration to kick off her first annual garage sale in her Studio City home to benefit the Aviva Foundation, Westside Food Bank and Casa Pacifica on Saturday.
Invited guests paid $50 to enter and browse through items including Coach purses, Disney hotel packages and boots signed by her Housewives costar Eva Longoria Parker and my own Samantha Knapp Atelier for maisonettestore.com deocrative pillows.
Along with our pillows, never-worn clothes as well as toys and other items once belonging to her daughter Teri’s daughter Emerson filled tables in typical garage sale style. Teri tells People Magazine her daughter came up with the ida to have a garage sale for charity. With that idea and a motivation for giving, Teri & Emerson took to cleaning out closets. Several of Hollywood’s heavy weights pulled at their purse strings.
“I was up all night,” Teri told People Magazine. “Once it was all set up I realized there were thousands of dollars worth of stuff out here and I couldn’t sleep. I’d come and patrol.” The doors opened at 8 a.m. with some food for shopping thought. Greenwich native, my sister and CEO of Treskoi Public Relations organized not only my participation in the event but coordinated a little breakfast bite from Buttercream Cupcakes & Coffee, flown in from Coral Gables, Fla.
