The other day I went to a designer clothes clearance sale, organised by a few friends of mine.
You know how sometimes you meet a girl who looks absolutely incredible, and then she tells you that she bought the designer dress she was wearing – on sale – for $10 and the jacket for $20… and you walk away thinking.. OMG how does she find those sales???
Anyway, I’ve recently found the answer – FACEBOOK!
So I popped over to one of those elusive clearance sales on a sunny Saturday morning.
Today’s sale was held at an old, but charming, local community hall. I turned up nice and early and joined the very long queue that had already formed.
At 10am on the dot, they opened the doors and everyone poured in. There were dozens of racks and tables covered with STUFF! Dresses, jackets, jeans, shoes, bags, accessories, you name it.
The markdown prices were REALLY incredible. From $250 down to $50. And tonnes of $20 and $10 items. It was look, grab, look, grab, LOOK, GRAB, GRAB, GRAB.
Then with arms full of clothes, people slowly made their way to the change rooms.
Now I suspect that this is a norm for these kind of sales – the temorary change rooms. It was just a room, for changing in.
In fact, it was just a big store room, with chairs and a couple of mirrors.
Everyone, with their bundles of goodies, found a corner, created a little haystack of clothes on the floor and just got on with it.
Off with their clothes – thighs, boobs, legs were flying everywhere.
The room was jam packed with women on a mission.
The room was humming with chatter. It was like being in a cloud of random girl speak – Do I look fat in this? Is this see-through? This makes me arms look huge! Can you see my bra? This would look great with jeans. I’m so wearing this to Sharon’s party! Neh it looks crap. I don’t know where I would wear this. It’s only $5 so I may as well buy it.
It was the oddest thing ever.
And I found some spectacular bargains! Can’t wait to share with you all!
