Pageant dresses? Check. A retro owl lamp? You got it! A disco two-piece set? Absolutely. Everything and anything under the sun was scored at this month’s Monthly Meetup at the Goodwill on Sudley Rd. in Manassas, VA.

Last Saturday, the Goodwill Monthly Meetup crew headed to the gorgeous and newly renovated modern Goodwill in Manassas and oh my, it was certainly one for the books.

With over 40 attendees present, it’s no lie that carts upon carts of scores were rolled through the store to the check-out counter.

This vintage sweater peeking out was under $5!

As noted above, this location was just renovated. As you can see by the photos, it’s looking bright and beautiful! All items were perfectly organized, the aisles were clear and the lighting was cheery.

With this lighting, all smiles were easily spotted on both staff and shoppers!

I myself scored a plethora of items including a 70’s Bobbi Brooks retro suit. It’s a little big on me but for under $20, it’s SO worth hemming.

Shoppers ventured out from all across the area – VA, MD, DC – the whole DMV woke up at 8 AM for an exclusive shopping experience! I think all can agree that it was well worth it.

How adorable is this owl?
This White House Black Market jacket was under $10! This shopper purchased it for her capsule wardrobe.

Kat always finds the best of the best at our Meetups. This comfy hoodie will be great for any fitness class with a pair of black or patterned leggings.
Within minutes, this mod bag was taken home. I love how it was styled on the mannequin!

Thanks again to everyone for making it out to this 8 AM event!

It really is such a pleasure to meet like-minded individuals who love style and know how to shop smart at Goodwill stores. There’s nothing better than shopping for a great cause that provides job opportunities in my beloved community.

I hope to see everyone at the next event!

Come to our next Meetup of 2019, if you couldn’t make it to this one! Sign up for our Meetup group! <3
