Fashionistas, this year was our most successful one yet filled with twelve Meetups, one each month at a different DC Goodwill store location.

Not only did I get to see familiar faces each and every month, but I also met new ones too. And although these have grown in success and popularity, amazing finds have continuously been scored with stores filled with happy shoppers. Here’s a recap of each event this year:

1.) January – Gaithersburg, MD

This year our Meetups kicked off at one of my favorite Goodwill’s located in Gaithersburg, MD. At this event, I took home a blazer and faux fur vest for under $10! I can’t wait to wear these pieces this coming January – they’re still in style!

2.) February – Arlington, VA (Glebe Rd)

Another successful event in the books! At this Meetup, we saw almost 30 attendees shopping away. I am still super stoked on this brand new Dooney bag that a fashionista scored for under $100!

3.) March- Dale City, VA

Still one of the biggest DC Goodwill locations, you could spend the whole day in this store! I know I did during this Meetup. When shopping I found this working electric drum pad for $15! I use it for my band now. 🙂

5.)  May- Clinton, MD

The newer Clinton, MD store is still a location you need to put on your must-visit list. It’s packed with vintage and designer brands and labels. I still use this Kate Spade bag that I got for about $15.

7.)  July- Alexandria, VA located on Kings Hwy

This event was a memorable one, for sure. I walked out with a $5 Rebecca Minkoff bag and a life-sized M&M! The M&M has a nice home in my new place in Takoma Park. 🙂
