Goodwill of Greater Washington will be celebrating the summer with a major trunk show at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery. The DC Goodwill Summer Trunk Show will operate from 11AM – 7PM on Thursday, August 25 and Friday, August 26. We had the pleasure of pulling fabulous resale pieces for sale for this event and we are beyond ecstatic! If you are available and in the area, feel free to secure your ticket here.
Goodwill DC has also decided to feature DIY items that have been transformed through Tim Kime’s workshops where many of them came from Goodwill (how freaking cool)! The exhibit is called The Art of Transformation Exhibit: Transformed, Upcycled, Functional Works of Art and the deets are listed below:
Tuesday-Friday, August 16 – August 19, 2016 12PM to 4PM
Saturday, August 20, 2016, 8AM-1PM
Pepco Edison Place Gallery
702 8th St NW Washington, DC 20068
I have been shopping at Goodwill for over twenty five years (before it was cool to say that you were a certified resale shopper). Resale shopping is my therapy and I always walk away with new to you finds that spark conversations. I like that I have the ability to create individual looks that screams freedom of expression. It is all about having fun with fashion, especially while thrift store shopping! I am a firm believer that you do not have to break the bank to look great. When traveling, it’s imperative that I schedule time to visit a Goodwill retail location in hopes of finding fabulous items to bring back with me in my suitcase.
Resale shopping in Atlanta.
Most recently, I snagged a silk Christian Dior polka dot print skirt while in Virginia and a vintage Diane von Furstenberg dress and Jimmy Choo sandals while resale shopping in Maryland.
High End Goodwill Finds
The items that I curated for Goodwill’s upcoming Popup Shop would be ideal for Sunday brunch and would be considered appropriate for the office as well. It’s all about modern essentials that can be styled in unconventional ways, while infusing a splash of edge into the mix. We also pulled a few pieces for those who appreciate a simplistic approach to style which involves all casual wear that can be put together in no time.
Love This Blazer – Curated Find For The DC Goodwill Summer Trunk Show
While visiting the DC Goodwill Headquarters, we were able to snag a few rebellious pieces that will turn heads and have people thinking you’re not from here, nor were these pieces snagged while resale shopping.
