A record number of shoppers attended the 36th Annual Glitter Sale at Goodwill, and their purchases helped make this year’s sale a success! More than 3,100 people bought over $346,000 worth of eveningwear, shoes, purses, jewelry and accessories on Saturday, November 9 and Sunday, November 10. There were also 200 people who shopped the pre-sale on Wednesday, November 6. All proceeds from the sale will support Goodwill’s free job training and education programs.
Before the sale opened to the public at 9:00 am on Saturday, over 700 excited shoppers formed a line that stretched along Goodwill’s building and out to Dearborn Street to be among the first to browse the racks of designer, vintage and one of a kind pieces.
“We really want to thank the community for supporting both the sale and gala and making them such a huge success,” said Goodwill Senior Director of Retail Operations Derieontay Sparks. “The proceeds we raised will allow Goodwill to help more people in our community get jobs. Last year Seattle Goodwill served over 6,000 individuals.”
