This weekend marks the 25th Annual Seattle Goodwill Glitter Sale !
All year long the good folks at the Seattle Goodwill set aside fabulous donated fashion items and save them up for a weekend event called the Glitter Sale ! This event has become a weekend "must do" for "Budget Fashionistas" to score some fabulous fashion finds.
To kick off this years Glitter Sale, Goodwill launched its' 1st Annual Glitter Gala on Thursday November 13th, 2008 in the Metropolitan Ballroom at the Sheraton Hotel. This years' Glitter Sale is Saturday and Sunday, November 15th & 16th from 9am to 6pm and there will be a line of dedicated Glitter Shoppers!
There will be designer, retro, vintage, dresses, gowns, jackets, tops, handbags, belts, shoes, jewelry and more! "Stuff" will often be sparkly, sequined, gold, silver, beaded, fringed, silky, velvet, leather, feathered, brocaded, embroidered, embellished....and will absolutely satisfy your inner "Dress-up Girl" with Fun Fashion and Glamour Galore!
A few years ago I went to the Glitter Sale with some friends and we had fun in the fashion frenzy finding a few new favorites to add to our collections. So, if this seems like your kind of fun....check out the Glitter Blog for shopping tips and enjoying Betsy McFeely's posts on some of the finds she has highlighted and more. While the Glitter Sale is a wonderful event everyone attending, there is a purpose to all that Glitters...helping people through Goodwill's job training and education programs .
Today, Betsy took me on a Pre-view tour of all the wondrous LOOT that will make up the Seattle Goodwill Glitter Sale and I have put together a slide show of what I saw...and ooooh how I would have loved to have been able to shop right then and there! Many thanks to Betsy and all the people at Goodwill who have worked so hard to organize and merchandise all the wonderful things that kind, and thoughtful people have donated to help fund Goodwill's job training and education programs.
