From what I've heard it's a madhouse. We missed it. So when we got news of another costume warehouse sale, we were on it. Especially when we read they had 1950s vintage clothing and accessories.
We got there relatively early (a little after doors opened). If this had been the opera sale, we would have arrived too late, but we were able to walk right in. Tables piled high with pants, shirts, and more greeted us. Racks of clothes.
And boxes. Boxes stuffed with clothes on shelves, on the floor, everywhere. One had to have a mission and a plan. There was lots of trash you had to dig through to find the treasures. Many items were water stained or moth eaten. But if you were patient and lucky, you might find the Holy Grail.
Back from the dry cleaner, here are our treasures. The four aprons together were $5 and the strapless 1950s cocktail dress was $15.
