The annual North Monroe Vintage, Hearts & Flowers charity event to benefit the Women and Children’s Free Restaurant here in Emerson-Garfield will take place tomorrow (Saturday, August 24) at The Heart of Spokane (3017 N Monroe) [map] between noon and 5pm.
The event is both a canned food drive and family-friendly shopping extravaganza. In addition to face painting for the kids and fundraising raffles, you can wander up and down North Monroe and visit the many individually owned retro, craft, and antique shops there like Cruz’n Back in Time or Bag Lady.
There are usually a few vintage cars and motorcycles on display, and you’ll be able to purchase a grilled hotdog or two across the street at the Hub Tavern in their outdoor lounge area. And don’t forget to stop in at Paint in My Hair to get a DIY project to go.
Drop off your donations of canned food at The Heart of Spokane, check out the unique shops on N. Monroe, and help benefit a fantastic nonprofit community service all at once!
