An August 31 post on The Pioneer Woman Mercantile Facebook page reads:
We are very happy to announce that every Wednesday in September, we will be having our first-ever sidewalk sales at the Merc... and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. We have a ton of awesome and amazing things picked out for the sales: Dishes, glasses, flea market finds, wall art, display pieces, camping goods... and some HUGE markdowns on really pretty clothes. There'll also be a bunch of barely damaged/dinged things that will make your heart go pitter-pat. We're excited to welcome you to Pawhuska for the sidewalk sales, but are grateful to be able to offer love and support to the victims of Harvey. Texas and Louisiana, you are in our hearts every single day. ??
To us, Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman, has always represented the best of the Heartland and the Midwest, and it's easy to see why when you take stock all of the ways she gives back, not only to her hometown, but to her fans around the country.
