The popular local pop-up boutique Fancy’s Folly has re-opened in the Sewickley village. The store continues its tradition of charitable giving on behalf of customers through the “Shop for a Cause" event, donating 10 percent of all gross sales over $100 to The Child Health Association of Sewickley.
“Fancy’s Folly was built upon this philanthropic practice and I am thrilled to continue this tradition,” said Nancy Follett, owner of Fancy’s Folly.
In addition to donating a portion of all sales, Fancy’s Folly will also provide information to the community on the Association’s upcoming events and ways to become involved. The "Shop for a Cause" event runs from Sept. 22 through Oct. 6.
In June, the shop hosted their first-ever "Shop for a Cause" event that benefited the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Phipps Conservatory and The Village Theater Co. in Sewickley.
“It was a huge success,” Follett told Sewickley Patch. “I am confident that ‘Shop for a Cause’ to benefit The Child Health Association of Sewickley will be equally, if not more successful.”
Founded in 1923, The Child Health Association of Sewickley has been engaged for almost 90 years in charitable giving and volunteer service aimed at improving the quality of life for children in western Pennsylvania.
Fancy’s Folly, founded in 2001, offers distinctively classic gifts, accessories and clothing for women, men and the home including many choices of monogrammed gifts.
The store’s re-opening will feature a special trunk show of the Lex & Lynne Jewelry Collection, fabulous new “finds” for fall and the addition of several new lines not currently available anywhere in Pittsburgh! Beaded clutches, a wide assortment of pillows, tabletop including glassware, vases, totes, frames, cashmere, candles, purses, scarves and needlepoint shoes are just a few of the many wonderful items the store will be featuring this fall.
“I'm really excited about re-opening on Thursday, Sept. 6th since we will be open this time through Christmas!” Follett said.
