Carolyn poses with Meetup shoppers at Richmond Highway Goodwill store
To kick off the start of autumn, I headed to the Alexandria Goodwill on Richmond Highway for our monthly September Meetup, I honestly could not think of a better way to kick off my favorite season. The sun was shining and I was more than ready to fill up a cart of fun finds! I think a lot of Meetup attendees felt this same sense of excitement because when the Meetup began, I couldn’t help feel the goodwill with over 45 smiling faces ready to score some one-of-a-kind gems. As usual, this Meetup was filled with fun, good eats, and notable name brands.

Although it’s going to be cooler out, I couldn’t help but take home this bright green floral vintage Malia dress for $5. I CANNOT WAIT to rock this next summer with a pair of wedges and gold jewelry.

As always, Meetup attendees left with carts full of treasures and name brand finds. Literally, every single attendee left with at least one big bag of items.  It’s such a pleasure to meet like-minded individuals who love fashion and know how to shop smart. There’s nothing better than shopping for a great cause that provides job opportunities in my community.
