Shopping Event

Designer Accessories Sale at Goodwill

Hunt for bracelets and score platforms on March 9 and 10 in the University District.

Among the goods that are being tagged and readied for this year’s Goodwill Accessories Sale: Kate Spade Mary Janes.

One of the major differences between Goodwill’s megapopular Glitter Sale and its upcoming designer accessories sale? Shelves are restocked throughout the weekend so there’s no need to camp out the night before.

The University District Goodwill hosts this yearly event, now approaching its third go-round. On March 9 and 10 from 10 to 8 the thrift store brings out its stock of designer shoes, handbags, jewelry, and men’s items (ties, belts, and the like) for a two-day blowout. We’re told that this year’s loot also includes handpicked vintage apparel.

Every penny of the net proceeds goes to support Goodwill’s community education programs. Ten of their centers around the region, including a Seattle location, offer free classes in basic computer skills, GED preparation, English for nonnative speakers, and retail and customer service. This real-world training gives low-income individuals job skills to help them become economically self-sufficient.

So tuck that in the Marc Jacobs clutch you score, and keep the organization in mind when you get down to spring cleaning.
