Get ready for the "glamorous, gay Goodwill."
Don Hammill's resale shop, 3 Snaps, opens its doors on Friday, May 7. The opening weekend bash will include a fashion show and possible appearances by Valley drag queens.
Hammill says he named the store after the flamboyant finger-snapping gesture synonymous with gay men (also known as the "z-snap" or "triple snap").
Michael Todd Robinson is the current manager, but has also worked with the Hospice of the Valley store and owns Zinnias at Melrose. He says hopes to recruit 200 volunteers to help staff the store (volunteers can sign up at the 3 Snaps website).
If you plan on attending the opening, youth from 1n10 will present a fashion show and refreshments will be provided. Opening celebration will be held this Friday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m..
The store is located at 626 W. Indian School Road. For more information, visit www.3snaps.org or call 602-265-6300.
