Fashionable finds at amazing prices, our tips to shop Goodwill Glitter Sale

It's the event of the season for folks who love scoring fashionable finds at deep discounts.

Seattle Goodwill's Katherine Boury gave us the scoop on THE sale of the season featuring a whopping 65,000 (yes thousand) pieces!

"The Glitter Sale (November 10th at 11th) is an annual sale that Goodwill does. This year is the 35th anniversary-- so there's all sorts of things that will be here: ball gowns, dresses, purses, accessories, shoes - everything you can imagine."

This sale is for men, women-- even kids!

For starters, Boury demonstrated two glam looks for less featuring deals from The Glitter Sale-- one for a guy and one for a gal. Each outfit included clothing and accessories, and at under $100 for the head to toe looks-- the price was right.

Other notable finds included designer deals. We spotted a leather Rock & Republic jacket for about $25 and a Pendleton coat for around $60. Not to mention the 'to-die-for' strappy Valentino pumps marked at $19.99. If you are into labels, there are lots of them, including Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Balenciaga.

If retro is your groove-- this is the place for you. We found vintage everything here and the price points felt like throwbacks too. If you need a tiara (who doesn't?)-- barrettes, earrings or literally any kind of jewelry-- you can find it at The Goodwill Glitter Sale.

There are thousands of beautiful bargains. But at Seattle Goodwill, helping others is always in style. According to Boury, "There's something for everyone. And also really importantly one of the best parts is you actually are shopping for our mission as well so this amazing sale where you can get something wonderful and blingy and designer that also happens to benefit our free job training and education program. Last year we helped over 13-thousand individuals with that program."

The Goodwill Glitter Sale is the spot for everything sparkly, shining and fabulous.

"People love that they can find something really unique. I think it's the treasure hunt that people really enjoy," says Boury with a grin.

Tips for Shopping at The Glitter Sale

  1. Think Layers: Dressing in layers makes it easy to try items on quickly.
  2. H2O To Go: Bring water to keep hydrated.
  3. Make the Most of Your Time: When you arrive at the sale, you'll receive a number. Then, when when it's your time to enter the sale space you'lll get a text. You can make the most of your "in between" time by shopping the rest of the store or grabbing breakfast.
  4. Getting There: While there is a parking lot, it can fill up fast on Glitter Sale Day. The bus is another great alternative as is a shared ride. Seattle Goodwill is participating in the Uber donation drive on Saturday, and one of locations that people can donate to is at the Dearborn location. It would be a great way to get a ride to the Glitter Sale by donating to Goodwill that day.
