I have Amy to thank for telling me about this sale. It was put on by a costume warehouse, and there was a ton of old and crazy stuff there. I had a field day, but I imagine if I was really into dressing retro, it would have been absolute heaven. But, I did manage to find a few things. I found a leather coat that fits a little snug, but I just couldnt walk away from it. (leather can be stretched, right?) You basically pick a bag, 20pounds for Small, 50pounds for Large and fill it with whatever will fit. I ended up with a couple things for Z, a blazer for Q and my leather jacket. It was incredible to walk around and see all this stuff though. old military jackets, crazy hats, school uniform blazers..clothes, hats, jackets from every era, 40s up through the 90's.
It was a little overwhelming, rifling through all the boxes..and, it was difficult to try anything on. people were crammed into corners with their loot, sorting through it, trying things on however they could.
But, it was alot of fun.
