Shopping for some is a favorite pastime, shopping for others can be grueling, but shopping for a good cause, is something special. Each summer season there are an abundance of charitable events, one of the more popular and anticipated events in recent years is the UJA Federation of New York Women’s Philanthropy’s Annual “Hamptons Trunk Show” located on the grounds of the Bridgehampton Historical Society. From the moment we entered the grand tented event, our eyes were drawn to aisle after aisle of elegant jewelry, accessories, clothing and unique novelties. Each and every booth offered an array of the most magnificent and unique items. If you were not able to be there this year, make sure to mark your calendar for next year’s show. I guarantee it will be worth it! For more information, visit ujafedny.org/womens-philanthropy.
