This weekend kicked off the first Bi-Annual Sale at Dress for Success! While all donations are used for clients, some donations are just not appropriate for meetings and business. Some are also going to be out of season so they need to make room for spring and summer.I was so honored to be able to help with this event and it was a success!! With over $5,000 raised many women left feeling as if they had given back and left with a few awesome finds in their bags! I had family and friends stop by and assisted women in finding great colors and statement pieces to add to their wardrobe! It was seriously so much fun and I am really starting to think this may just be my calling..just sayin...anyway..I got some AMAZING things myself and will share those in next weeks Link Up, but for now here were a few pics I snapped of the goods...

These were some auction items, look at some of these names!

Ughh I really wanted this....










Now it is your turn!
 If you have a thrifted item, a sale item, or something you can help others save money or time on from this past week, Link up to Thrifters Anonymous every MONDAY and you will have a chance to be featured! Let's be real folks...who doesn't want to see what others are doing to save money, or even how they are letting their creativity amaze us. Oh and not to mention that it's just a cool club and there are no rules, so I won't punish you if you don't want to post my button...I mean it is anonymous right? Thank you and see you every Monday!

Here is how it works...

  • In the "Link it to" section, leave a link to one specific Thrifters Anonymous post from the past week or week prior...doesn't matter...
  • In the "Title" section, tell me what was thrifted cuz you were super excited about your outfit or new couch . An example would be "Thrifted Belt, handmade skirt, & shoes on sale!
  • That's all...and there is no judgement here...everything is worthy...and believe me once you link up you are officially a Thrifters Anonymous Member...FOR EVA..ha ha ok..or as long as I am doing this madness..
