Vintage Whimsy ReMix (located inside of Vintage & Vape in Warrenton) and Dixie Belle Paint Company are raising money for Soles4Souls, a nonprofit based in Nashville, Tenn., that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world.

Vintage Whimsy ReMix will host a shoe painting class on Saturday, Aug. 17, at 2 p.m., to encourage local participation in the “Paint It Forward” social media campaign. The class will be held at Vintage & Vape, 1000 Warrenton Shoppes, Suite 30B, Warrenton.

The fee is $5 to participate. Participants should bring a pair of shoes to be painted.

The class is open to 10 participants. Interested people should RSVP online through the Vintage & Vape Facebook page.

“Paint It Forward” is a social media campaign hosted on Facebook until Sept. 15, 2019. For every photo submitted of shoes painted with Dixie Belle Paint, $1 will be donated to Soles4Souls.

To participate, contributors can submit a photo of their painted pair of shoes to the “Chalk Mineral Paint Enthusiasts” group on Facebook.

Dixie Belle Paint Company supports small businesses around the United States and Canada by supplying high-quality Chalk Mineral Paint and other painting products.
