Fashion Calendar: Goodwill Glitter Sale


The 33rd annual Goodwill Glitter Sale is going down Nov. 5- 6 at the Dearborn store in Seattle, a.k.a. the largest Goodwill store in the country. We're talking insane prices on designer, vintage, and one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories you won't find anywhere else. What will you find at the sale you ask? Is it worth waiting in line at 5 a.m. to be the first to shop the sale? Yes, yes, and yes. Last year shoppers found everything from Louboutin shoes to Burberry jackets and Coach bags.  A coveted Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress? Yes, those have been known to make appearances at the sale too. Last year's Glitter Sale helped raise funds to support Goodwill's free job training and education programs which served more than 9,700 people in the community and helped over 1,000+ people obtain job placement. This really is shopping for a cause.

The sale runs daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. all weekend long and admission is free, so you can bet there will be a line, but trust us, it's worth the wait. Racks will be re-stocked over the weekend. Oh and the best tip we've heard for finding the coveted designer pieces at the sale? Follow the stylish people around the sale and wait for them to ditch items they've been carrying around.
