A few weeks ago I showed you guys the awesome pieces I found at the Housing Works Buy the Bag sale. I fit 30 items of clothing in a bag for just $25, so that was less than $1 per piece of clothing. And last week I showed you how I put together a Thrifty Threads outfit with pieces from the sale. The sale I went to last month was initially the last one of the year, but the great folks at Housing Works added a few more dates for us thriftaholics. So if you weren’t able to attend a sale this year, or you couldn’t get enough, you’re in luck.
Mark your calendar for November 19 and 26, when the sales will be held from 9am-12pm. The hours are different than the regular sale times, but this gives you just enough time to get in, dig through some bins and add a few great pieces to your wardrobe. I’m still beaming from my Armani blazer and vintage sequin jacket I scored last time.
Housing Works Buy the Bag Sales:
Saturday, November 19 and 26
4849 35th St., Long Island City, New York
Update: The hours are now 11am-2pm. Same dates, just different times.
If you need any last minute tips on how to prepare for the sale, check out my quick video. I’m not sure if I’ll be there on the 19th, 26th or both, but if you see me, be sure to say hi!
