We will be open late for afterhours shopping Wednesday evening to support an amazing organization, Resistencia Books! Shop for #fall #fashion #vintage #thrift goods at Treasure City Thrift in East Austin. Blue tag clothes will be $1 each at this event! ♥
Please share and invite friends. Everyone is welcome!
During these two hours, 100% of sales go to Resistencia Bookstore/Casa de Red Salmon Arts, a neighborhood center for aspiring writers, providing quality literature to Austin communities since 1983. Specializing in indigenous, Native American, Chican@-Mexican@, Latin@, African American, queer, feminist, and children’s bilingual literature.
Red Salmon Arts offers resources to Chican@/Latino@ and Native American communities living in working class neighborhoods of Austin to better understand the culture and arts of their families and ancestors. The founder of Red Salmon Arts, raúlrsalinas, was a world-renowned poet who developed his artistic technique through a life of hardship and experience, including time served in prison for non-violent crimes. His readings were dramatic and effective, helping young people who heard him understand the life circumstances of so many Mexican Americans in those days, and how poverty and racism still create challenges for Latin@s.
