I’m about to set out on a grand camping adventure (a geeky adventure to be explored at a later date) which meant days of errands for me.
Enter, the Northridge Fashion Center.
I needed boots so before hitting DSW, I wanted to check out smaller, cheaper stores so ended up spending an hour or two wandering the mall when I stumbled on my new favorite gem:
Think recent fandom shift in Hot Topic but much brighter and with more room to move. Add a touch of book/tea nerd and science lover and here you are.
I had a huge case of “shut up and take my money!”
I ended up buying a nerdy girl mug, a father’s day book (I won’t name this because of a possible audience member!), and a candle, but I have a whole list ready from running shirts to chemical diagram jewelry and everything in between.
I’ve been trying to save money but the thing I love most about this store and why I don’t mind spending money here is that they are charity inclined.
For every $10 you spend in the store, a meal is donated through Feeding America. At the register, you can also donate as easily as rounding your purchase up to the nearest dollar.
While charity shops and the like have a slight edge in the giving back without creating extra waste as their merchandise is used and donated. However, with Box Lunch, you don’t have to worry about their being only one of something and not in your size because it’s all built.
So yes, love, love, love, and that’s all from me.
