Nordstrom is opening a new concept store, Treasure & Bond, in New York’s Soho area this Friday. So, what can you expect from a store that donates 100% of its proceeds to charity? Let me say, first, that this is no Goodwill. With Vogue’s Anna Wintour behind the idea and with Nordstrom’s upscale shopper in mind, you can likely expect no less than three digit price tags on the racks upon racks of clothing, jewelry, art, and other gems floating around the store. Also, the retailer hand picks up-and-coming designers from around the world to adorn its two-story confines, which sits below a residential condo building at 350 West Broadway.

     
If you find yourself getting a bit carried away with the store’s one-of-a-kind items, you can take comfort in knowing that every sale will benefit New York City’s children in need. This year, the charities involved are The Edible Schoolyard NYC, The Achievement Gap Project, and the Association to Benefit Children (ABC). Next year, a new set of beneficiaries will be chosen based on customer recommendations.
Vibrant cashmere scarves, collector’s jewelry and furniture, and children’s apparel are some of the pieces that Treasure & Bond will offer. For more details, read my Treasure & Bond preview on Ask Miss A.
