Second Wind

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

Otrā Elpa - "The Second Wind" - is a place for conducting good works. Doing your part is not only easy, but can be quite fun. You can either shop here or donate items for the store to sell. Everything sold at this elegant shop has been donated.
The treasure trove is immense, from practical items for home or kitchen to high art. Clothing, shoes, fashion accessories, books, home decorating items, furniture, games and toys can be found here.

The most interesting finds are sold in the "Quiet Auction" (Klusā izsole) every month. You might end up purchasing a purse that was once owned by the former president of Latvia, for example.
Five different projects are supported with the money that is earned, including homes for children and the elderly. Otrā Elpa is currently the only shop with this type of charity concept in the country.

Marijas iela 13, Berga Bazārs, 2nd floor
