"If it’s November, it must be time for the Seattle Goodwill Glitter Sale. This year, on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 13 and 14, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., is the sale’s 27th annual event, where vintage and designer clothing and accessories are for sale for a song.

All items in the sale were donated to Goodwill throughout the previous year and all the proceeds from the sale benefit Seattle Goodwill’s free job training and education programs.

“Last year we sold $140,000 worth of merchandise,” says event organizer Tracy Schneider. “This year I’m seeing an astounding selection of shoes, from brand-new beaded Manolo Blahniks to vintage Roger Vivier,” Schneider continues, revealing that a pair of Beth Levine shoes is also for sale, for an astonishing $39. Levine, as you may recall from the retrospective at the Bellevue Arts Museum earlier this year, was a visionary female shoe designer from the 1940s to the 1990s. Her designs were sold at Nordstrom and she designed Nancy Sinatra’s famous white go-go boots."

This is a perfect time for Nice Girls in the Northwest to go shopping for a great cause! Be sure to check it out!
