Savvy bargain-hunters have learned after 10 years that the best place to shop for Christmas presents is Project Angel Food’s Divine Design, held at Barker Hangar.
Items ranging from Barbie dolls to complete living room sets are donated and sell for 50% or more off retail while raising money for an org that prepares and delivers more than 1,200 free meals to people living with HIV/AIDS throughout Los Angeles.
At Thursday’s grand opening, Annette Bening received the Woman of Style award from Kevin Spacey, while Lauren Hutton was feted with the Humanitarian Award.
As the event centered on shopping, Winona Ryder jokes were center stage. “On Monday, you can actually go in and take the stuff,” said emcee Eric McCormack. “We call it ‘Winona Monday.’ ” Merchandise started at 50% off on Friday and graduated to 90% off on Sunday.
