|What you'll find at the Housing Works Spring Sale Event - Vintage suede Gucci shoulder bag, Retail $525 HW: $125|
My absolute favorite thrift/second-hand shop in the world is having their most anticipated sale of the year this weekend--Housing Works is having their "Best of Spring Sales".
This one you should NOT miss. If you've been putting off your thrift shop hopping trip, this weekend is it! And, talk about guilt-free shopping--you'll be saving a ton a money, helping the environment by purchasing second-hand items, and supporting an amazing cause (Housing Works hopes to end the dual crisis of HIV/AIDS).
