DETAILS:

Owner Bernie Shine is an eclectic and eccentric collector, a treasure hunter of sorts. But he does not seek sunken ships, buried treasures, or archeological ruins. Rather he recovers GENUINE VINTAGE MEMORABILIA from dusty warehouses, old factories, and closed stores. He searches the world over for quantity finds from bygone eras, all in unused condition.

Shine Gallery is a collector’s paradise for bona fide period items mostly from the 1910s through the 1950s, all guaranteed to be AUTHENTIC & VINTAGE. Named by Los Angeles Magazine as Best of LA® 2009.

Bernie will be presenting an amusing look at the history of joyful junk, featuring vintage jokes, novelties, tricks, pranks, prizes, trinkets & treasures from the incredible inventory of Shine Gallery.

Please join us at Shine Gallery on Thursday, April 1, 2010, between 7 PM and 9:00 PM for this special meet and greet. Shine Gallery will donate 30% of gross sales made during this event to the Los Angeles Conservancy Modern Committee. It’s a FUN FUNDRAISER!

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE . . .they have a FREE gift for the first 50 guests, a mystery GRAB BAG containing a genuine vintage item from Shine Gallery! Lots of FUN and SURPRISES!

WHAT: Cookies Without Borders: A Bake Sale for Haiti
WHEN: Sunday, January 31, 2010, 2–6pm
WHERE: Scoops Gelato, 712 N Heliotrope Drive, Wilshire Center

cookie1DETAILS: “We know about earthquakes here. Very few of us have ever experienced one as strong as 7.0, but we can only imagine the lasting devastation affecting every aspect of life in Haiti after such a huge tremor. Please join us in doing what we can (baking cookies, eating cupcakes, hanging out at Scoops, raising money) to help out the people of Haiti.

We will be featuring a dizzying array of sweets from both professional kitchens (Spork Foods, Whisk LA whoopie pies, and Bitter Sweet Treats, Valerie Confections, Large Marge Sustainables) and local homes, as well as a few jars of choice homemade jams, and all proceeds from the bake sale will go to Doctors Without Borders‘ (Médecins Sans Frontières) Emergency Relief Fund. Doctors Without Borders a Nobel Prize-winning international humanitarian organization working to meet the overwhelming medical needs of post-earthquake Haiti and throughout countries where survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe.”

If you’d like to be more involved, love to bake and want to donate a few of your favorites, just let them know and they’ll e-mail you more information. If you can’t make it to the bake sale but still want to help out, they’re requesting that people take a moment to mail a check directly to Doctors Without Borders with “Cookies Without Borders Bake Sale” on the check.
