Stevie Daniels and WMAR visit Renewal!

Stevie Daniels came to shop.  She loved what she saw, and returned to Renewal two days later — with a WMAR camera team to film a feature on the store!   The video footage shows the many departments, outstanding choices, and sophisticated display of clothing, accessories and jewelry at Renewal.  Susan Posner gave an outstanding presentation of Renewal as shopping for a cause, promoting sustainability, and providing affordable fashion.  Susan says somehow a 90-minute visit turned into a fabulous 2-minute television feature.  Stevie says she is now a 100% regular customer!

Stories from the Women’s Board Shops

Last week, as two friends paid for their finds at Renewal, they said they knew by waiting a few days for Black Friday, they would save 30%.  They went ahead and purchased at full price fearing their treasures would be sold by then.   At the Carry On Shop, a visitor from France bought first copy a new item — the colorful, upbeat new book Let’s All Go to Baltimore!

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Hosts Event at Carry On Shop

The Carry On Shop hosted an after-hours event for  the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation on Oct 24.  It was a time to eat, drink, mix and mingle, and comb the treasures of the shop. The event introduced the Carry On Shop and the Women’s Board to members of the Johns Hopkins community who may not be aware of all the Shop  and the Board  do to help support patient care at Johns Hopkins.

If interested in having an event such as this, please email The Carry On Shop at Jsizemo2@jhmi.edu and someone from the committee will be back in contact with you.

The Women’s Board invites you to the Farmers’ Market

The Carry On Shop will have a table at the Johns Hopkins Farmers’ Market on Thursday, September 28, and Thursday, October 12, from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm on the walkway between the cancer research buildings. The table will feature goods from the Carry On Shop as well as Johns Hopkins logo wear and gift items, which also are available at the Women’s Board Hospital Gift Shops.

The JHMI Office of Sustainability sponsors the Farmers’ Market, to bring local, nutritious food to the Johns Hopkins community. It is managed by Reduction in Motion, an environmental consulting firm, with over 10 years of experience in establishing such markets and a goal to accomplish zero waste. The Market provides a time to mingle with employees, students, patients, families, and community members, while browsing varied offerings, enjoying treats at pop- up eateries, and taking home healthy foods.

It is fitting that the Carry On Shop, located on East Monument Street, be present at the Market. The Women’s Board Shop and Renewal Upscale Resale, at Hunt Valley Towne Centre, practice sustainability and reduction in waste through resale, giving new life to donations. Come visit the Market and the COS team!

WB Videographer Receives National Recognition

In videotaping interviews with recipients of Women’s Board annual grants for the web site, the Board is fortunate to be able to draw upon the talent and skill of member Sharen Becker. Her interviews explain the impact of the awards from the Board in advancing patient care at Johns Hopkins.

Sharen’s first documentary short film has been accepted at festivals across the country including Orlando FL and Davis CA, and has won Best Document Short in the American Golden Picture International Film Festival. Using a cell phone, she videoed the story of Charm City Ballet, as the troupe attempted to make a comeback following the Covid-19 shutdown. The ballet company strived to keep the dancers inspired and well trained as they worked to produce a full-length ballet after being closed for two years. During the awards season public screenings of the video are not allowed outside of the film festivals. As soon as possible, the Women’s Board will have the chance to see the work celebrating Charm City Ballet. Congratulations Sharen!
