RECICLA SHOP Grand Opening!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – December 15, 2010

Entreamigos is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of the new Recicla Shop Resale Store on Thursday, December 16th from 6-8pm at the Entreamigos facility in San Pancho.

The Recicla Shop Resale Store is a collaborative project between Entreamigos, the Victoria Women In Need Society and Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates.  The objective is  to create a revenue stream for Entreamigos  to increase our  self sufficiency  in providing  programs and services  to individuals in our  community.

This fun benefit event is free to attend and will include a huge selection of holiday gift items  for purchase from the Entreamigos Gallery,  local artists  and great “like new” items from our  new Recicla Shop!

Come and enjoy the live music and fun fashion show along a welcome beverage and chocolate for our  first 50 guests!

Entreamigos gratefully accepts  donations of gently used clothes and house wares the night of the event or at the Old Town Farmers Market on Saturdays.

This is a perfect opportunity to make it a weekend in San Pancho, do your Christmas shopping at Entreamigos and stay for the festive Art Walk on Friday!  For more information about Entreamigos, please visit their website at or send an  email to
