Get high-end, vintage and contemporary furniture, art, home accents and gifts for 50–70% off retail at the Design on a Dime show. Admission is FREE, and your purchases of curated furniture and interior design accessories, including antiques, benefits one of the largest and important NYC charities, Housing Works, which supports New Yorkers suffering with HIV/AIDS with jobs, housing, education programs and other services. This is a win-win – you get bargain furniture and home fashions, and help NYC’s poor and sick at the same time. Design on a Dime is at the Metropolitan Pavillion, 125 West 18th Street, Friday and Saturday, April 26 and 27, 10 a.m. to 6 p. m. Go early for the best selection, go late for the best markdowns.
Housing Works also operates numerous thrift shops around town.
