The Berkshires’ premier annual pop-up clothing sale and fundraiser function, BerkChique! ushers in the season and helps us get our wardrobes in order for the busy months ahead. Returning for its 7th year, the “shop” will be held at the West Stockbridge Historical Society this weekend. WAM Theatre is the host this year.
The donated merchandise — new and gently used clothing and accessories — has come out of some of the most fashionable closets in the Berkshires, as well as the “The Bonnington Collection” from the area’s preeminent fashionista, Vicki Bonnington. She, along with philanthropist and businesswoman Nancy Fitzpatrick, conceived of BerkChique! as a fun way for donors to clean out closets in support of local nonprofits. Since its inception, the event has donated over $150,000 to organizations.
