3 Thrift Events To Check Out!

Earlier this year, I had asked and wondered how people could take the thrill of thrifting to the next level. Happy to see, many around the country are doing just that! From A "Sip & Swap" event happening in NYC, to a Pop-Up Thrift Shop happening in Texas, to special Goodwill Sale Days with 50% off being held right here in Arizona - Here's a quick re-cap of some of these events:

APRIL 13 - MAY 13

Thrift Studio is a bi-annual 30 day pop up shop created to provide financial viability and fundraising for Dwell with Dignity through selling their warehouse of overstocked donated, gently used furniture, housewares, accessories and high end designer finds to the public. This limited time only thrift shop concept will be open Tuesday - Sunday (closed on Mondays) during April 13th – May 12th from Noon – 5PM. It's located in the Dallas Design Center at 1250 Slocum Drive, Suite 550. The Thrift Studio will also be hosting a Pledgers Preview Party on Thursday evening April 12 - from 6:30PM - 9PM. Tickets are $125, and are available at Dwell With Dignity or at the door. read more about the event at Dwell With Dignity and my previous post A Pop-Up Thrift Shop.

APRIL 28 from 2PM to 4PM
The Sip & Swap is a fantastic way for ladies to update their wardrobe for Spring - without spending  thing! The event, held in NYC is being hosted by Thrift Blogger Patrice (author of Looking Fly On A Dime) with OSoChic.com. By invitation only (get your invite HERE) you can bring your gently worn or unused clothing to the even, which will be serving up complimentary cocktails (from Ciroc) as well as raffles hosted by NYC famed thrift shop  from Housing Works.

Happening every Saturday in April & May!

Goodwill stores already have a great selection of budget friendly second hand goods (and even new donations including tags!) so if you're looking to stretch your budget even further - for your home or your wardrobe - this event is not to be missed! Although I am not a nut about being at any store the moment they open for a sale (especially after working in retail!), last Saturday, I did venture out to check out this event and I was blown away! It was rockin' like a Black Friday at a big-box retailer! And here's a Tip: Scope out your local AZ Goodwill on Friday!

Loved the clean lines, simple turned leg detail and 
the bookmark veneer front drawer!

Great little find for a small hall or entry: only $15 at Goodwill!

I spotted this small table on Friday marked at $29.99. It's an old sewing table, already sanded down, and for 50% off - a great little find! Since I arrived at store at its opening for the Saturday Sale, I was able to walk right up to the piece and walk right up to the register before the lines began! (and trust me - they had lines longer than Ross!) At my local Goodwill, off Power & Ray Road, every shopping cart in the place was put to use, while extra staff members were on hand to replenish the store - with both new goods to the floor and put-backs from the fitting rooms. 

One persons trash, is now this person's new treasure!

I also checked out a few more local AZ Goodwill stores, where I was able to add some more wall baskets to the new collection I'm starting (a great way to add natural texture to a space!)

If you're in these above areas, will you be attending any of these events? I'd love to hear about your experience! What are some other thrift events happening in your area? If you're on Pinterest, you can check out some thrift board finds pinned by another local thrift blogger at The Goodwill Gal, plus also check out my finds on Pinterest too...
