Interested in thrifting but don’t know how to do so successfully? Want to use your flare for fashion to make a difference and serve a purpose? Then look no further than Bellevue Goodwill’s October 19 “Style with a Purpose” meet-up event.

Taking place from 5-8pm and featuring a dozen popular mid-state bloggers and DIY fashion experts, come join the meet-up to learn strategies for finding assembling eye-catching outfits at bargain prices.

This event is the third in the series of Style with a Purpose, the other two being previously held in East Nashville and Charlotte Ave. Each drew hundreds of guests- so be sure to get there on time to get your pick!

In addition to access to all of Goodwill’s shelves and racks, attendees of the meet-up will get to browse merchandise carefully selected by each blogger. There will be refreshments and door prizes, so really what more do you need?

If you remain unconvinced even still, perhaps it will help to know that all puchases of merchandise from Goodwill’s stores benefit the nonprofit’s mission of changing lives through education, training, and employment.

We hope to see you there October 19 at 5p.m. The Bellevue Goodwill is located at 7663 U.S. Highway 70 S.
