All That Glitters

The 34th annual Glitter Sale at the large Goodwill store, 1400 South Lane Street (Seattle), is fast approaching! If you’ve never attended before, come prepared to be dazzled (and possibly a little frazzled, because of the sheer number of attendees) on November 11th and 12th from 9 am- 6 pm. Since the waiting lines to the few fitting rooms are long, it’s best to come prepared by wearing clothing in which you can try things on over the top, right in the aisles, such as tank tops, body suits, and thinner leggings/pants. You still have the option of waiting for the fitting rooms, but the afore mentioned does save time. The glittery or glamorous finds on sale include formal dresses and suits, pants, tops, shoes, coats, hats, jewelry, and many other items.

Last year, this 2-day event brought in a record $310,000 towards free job training and education for those in need. Goodwill placed 1,918 people in jobs last year through their programs.

There will also be a Glitter Sale Preview event on November 8th from 4 pm-8 pm at $50 to $125 per ticket. The advantage is being able to view the collection before the general populous sees it at the official sale three days later. Click here for a sneak peak at a few of the items that will be offered.

So when you’re trying on that vintage hat or buying that sequined outfit, you can feel good about contributing toward a good cause. With the number of people’s lives that are improved by Goodwill’s programs and this sale, all that glitters really is gold.
