Last year, we gave you a peek inside Goodwill's massive new flagship retail store and outlet center in Atwater Village. Offering 135,000-square-foot of secondhand goodness, the space also hosts a cafe and the Community Enrichment Center at Fletcher Square, which offers programs and services that address the employment, education, health and universal needs of the community. Come Sunday, April 19th, the center will also be the home of Goodwill's one-time-only vintage fashion sale.
Taking place from 10am to 8pm, the landmark sale will feature "clothing collected by Goodwill Southern California over almost 100 years (our 100 year anniversary will be in 2016)," the nonprofit tells us. "The sale is a once in a lifetime, one day, one location only opportunity to purchase Victorian and hand beaded dresses from the early 1900's, frocks from the 50's, designer and one-of-a-kind knits from the 70's and much more. Over the years, Goodwill has curated thousands of iconic items including nearly 700 stunning hats and menswear."
Epic! Now, the fine print: all sales final; items sold as is while supplies last; no additional discounts will be offered or applied; may not be combined with any other offer or coupon; 10 item limit per person; restrictions apply.
