I attended a Dollar Sale hosted by Back By Popular Consignment in Lilburn. The fashion collection at this consignment is filled to the brim with designer clothing, shoes, accessories and handbags too. The Dollar Sale event happens several times throughout the year. It is sale that is also a fundraiser. So the money generated is donated to support a local charity. That is one of the reasons I enjoy going. Because I can great designer fashion without breaking the bank and support a good cause. I call that a win win situation. One main difference between this dollar sale, compared to previous dollar sales, is the amount of items available. In the past the sale would boast about 15,000+ pieces (reviewed HERE & HERE). That sale would have hundreds of people in attendance. This one was much smaller with only 2,000 pieces. However, it was just as fun and I did very well.
I spent $25! Brands that I scored include Tory Burch, Lilly Pulitzer, Theory, Vince Camuto, Escada and many more. Not all of these pieces are mine. I am sharing with my friends, family and "clients" too.
Here are my must-have tips for a successful day:
- ARRIVE EARLY. Get a sneak peek and set-up of the inventory. That way you can develop your strategy and know which items you will shop first.
- WEAR THRIFTING UNIFORM. This is an outdoor event, so there are no fitting rooms!
- BRING FRIENDS. The more the merrier and you can score items for each other.
