Lest you forget, Goodwill is hosting a once-in-a-lifetime vintage sale at its 135,000-square-foot flagship in Atwater Village this Sunday, April 19th. Going down at the Goodwill Southern California (GSC) Community Enrichment Center at Fletcher Square from 10am to 9pm (they added an extra hour!), the highly-anticipated event is a toast to Goodwill's 100-year anniversary next year, offering a mind-blowing selection of rare, retro pieces collected by the non-profit over the last century. To keep us all hyped, Goodwill shares the below additional details:
The collection includes thousands of pieces curated since GSC was established in 1916. Iconic items range from nearly every era of fashion ranging from the 1800s through the 1980s. The garments were donated to Goodwill over the years and were selected for use in fashion shows and other events also appearing in segments on television. From Victorian Lace and hand beaded dresses from the 1900s to fabulous frocks from the '50s and groovy knits and patterns from the '70s, men's and women's clothing will be offered for sale, including dresses, suits, separates, coats, and wedding dresses.
Fine print reminder: clothing origination dates are identified by the donor; 10 item limit per person; merchandise will be sold on a first come, first served basis; 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; all sales are final.
