Tell Us Your Glitter Sale Story

The Glitter Sale begins tomorrow, and we hope to see you there! We've already heard from some of our longtime Glitter Sale shoppers, and they're ready to rock!

Shelley Deese flew in from her home in North Carolina Wednesday night to meet long-time friend, Seattleite Kim Tingley, and plan their annual shopping expedition at the Glitter Sale. Here they are at last night's West Seattle ArtWalk. Deese and Tingley have made shopping at the Glitter Sale a pre-holiday tradition - one that has endured for more than ten years.

Whether you travel from near or far, if the Glitter Sale is part of your tradition, please share it with us. Is this your first time at the sale or are you a longtime shopper? Tell us about your experience and your favorite purchases. Send us a photo. Next week we'll showcase scenes and stories from this year's 25th Anniversary Glitter Sale.

Doors open at 9am. For shoppers who arrive early, the WALLY 1 event truck, sponsored by PEMCO Insurance, will be in the Goodwill parking lot from 6 to 9 am with free refreshments, their prize wheel and giveaways. Have a great time! Bring some frineds. Make some new ones. And remember, all proceeds from the Glitter Sale support Seattle Goodwill's free job training and education programs in the community.

I was disappointed to see that on Sunday of the sale the vintage room was closed - that is the only reason I come to the Glitter Sale!

Dear Anonymous –
Thank you for contacting us. I am sorry you made a trip to the Glitter Sale on Sunday only to find the vintage boutique closed. We did restock the boutique throughout the day on Saturday, but the inventory overall was not as plentiful.

The Sale attracted a very large crowd on Saturday, and many items got snapped up. We apologize for your inconvenience and truly appreciate your support.

Best Regards,

Betsy McFeely
Public Relations Director
