About The Annex Wine Bar

“Carmel’s new wine destination”

September Monthly News

School is Back in Session! As a parent, I welcome the routine and new school year and always love the excitement of the season. Labor Day was gorgeous here on the Peninsula and our Indian summer is gearing up for the next couple months. I love this time of year on the Central Coast – because we wait all year for it to arrive!

Over the Summer, I had the recent pleasure of attending a Women’s League Luncheon where the Women’s Leadership Council at CSUMB was recognized for their non-profit and the successes of their store called “Otter Outfitters”, which allows students and alumni free access to gentle used business attire for internship and professional interviews. I was so impressed with their Executive Director and their mission statement, it seemed fitting to host a month long clothing drive at the Annex to help stock their store!

I remember my first suit and job interview at an art gallery while I was still in college and the importance it was to feel successful by looking and dressing the part. We started accepting donations last month once the word got out and I realized there is more than just professional attire being donated. We have received hats, shoes, dresses, designer jeans and more.

So, in addition to accepting donations for Otter Outfitters, we will be hosting a “Pop Up Second Hand Store” at the Annex selling the gently used clothes and items benefitting another 501c3 non-profit – Na Wahine O Kalani. On Saturday, September 28 from 10-4PM you can shop our pop up store with $5, $10 & $20 selections – with all proceeds going to Na Wahine O Kalani. Complimentary music, small bites and bubbles will be on hand all day. The professional attire will be sent to the Women’s Leadership Council with the remaining treasures going up for sale – WIN WIN! We have some great donations so far and welcome you to stop in anytime during business hours and recycle your gently used clothing. We are asking for women’s clothes and men’s professional attire for the Otter Outfitters.
