Some Baltimore traditions just keep getting bigger and better. That's certainly the case with this year's Johns Hopkins Best Dressed Sale and Boutique 2008, now in it’s 41st year. Exclusive designer dresses and shoes, chic contemporary fashions, classic accessories and enduring vintage clothing will be on the racks, waiting for a favored place in the closets of bargain-conscious - but demanding - shoppers.

The sale begins on Thursday, Oct. 2 from 4 - 8 p.m. (pre-sale shopping, light refreshments, $35) and continues (free admission) Friday, Oct. 3, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 4, 10 a.m. -5 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 5, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.(half-price day)

A fashion expert will be on site at this year’s event, which is sponsored by The Women’s Board of The Johns Hopkins Hospital. There are gently used shoes and handbags, skirts, suits, tuxedoes and furs. For serious shoppers, the advance shopping opportunity on Thursday offers a less chaotic shopping experience.

Thousands of shoppers turn out each year for this free fund-raising event, so come early for the best selection. All proceeds from this year’s event, which in recent years raised $150,000, will support patient care at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
