Donald J Pliner heels, Armani Sunnies, Vintage Statement Earrings….this Meetup was full of the goodies.

On 10/26, we had the pleasure of hosting our October Shopping Meetup at only Goodwill in DC on South Dakota Avenue. We used this event as a way to remind the public that although Goodwill’s HQ offices have moved, the store is still staying at 2200 South Dakota!

With many attendees present bright and early at 8 AM, any sleepiness did not hinder shopping energy. Carts were piled to the ceiling, laughter was heard throughout the store…it literally felt like everyone was shopping during a typical weekend 12 PM rush!

Below are snapshots of the fabulous morning’s festivities – which were filled with gems, snacks and good company. As you scroll through the images, you’ll see that many new and familiar faces were at this event – all uniting for the greater Goodwill and really good goodies. 🙂

The sunnies game was on point at this store. In the front case, we spotted heart-shaped beauties, designer shades….there were options for all tastes.

Many know that this store in particular carries great shoes. This fact was confirmed via customer’s carts.

Donald J Pliner shoes for 50% Off!
These booties were real leather!
The heels are so divine

It seems that someone also donated there 80’s jewelry collection to the DC Goodwill – and we sure can’t complain about that!

Carolyn is not a hat person, but she felt the need to take this 60’s french hat home with her. How should she wear it?

Jasmine, a local lifestyle blogger, picked this Madewell strawberries dress from our FYG curated rack. This probably originally retailed for $50+!

We are very delighted to see Keisha, our new Instagram friend, during this exclusive shopping event. Her style in-person is as good as it is on social media!

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 Meetup!
