The Seattle Goodwill's 25th Annual Glitter Sale

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.

Deborah, What a terrific event!  There would be a line around the corner if they had something like that here!  I was amazed by the variety of items--and many people are looking for real bargains these days.  Wish I were there :)

Hi Carol....I'm back! 

The Glitter Sale is a roaring success, they had a record turn out for today and there is still tomorrow!  I had a lot of fun talking to a couple the hour and 15 minuets I waited in line to get inside, and when I got there, met two women who come every year (on their 10th) and one comes all the way from North Carolina.  They were a blast to talk with and discuss our loot!  I am planning on writing a post about it sometime tomorrow....

Gosh, I have missed AR and all you Rainiers!
