|Lights. Camera. Thrifting!|
Fashion doesn’t have to mean excessive spending. As avid thrift shoppers, we know the the power of the almighty dollar and just how far we can stretch that dollar when it comes to what we’re wearing.
Impact Thrift Stores recognize the need for fun, fresh and trendy fashion pieces at affordable prices. And what better way to show off their selection of secondhand clothing, but with a thrifted runway show?
To conclude the grand opening celebrations of the new Impact Thrift in Feasterville, PA on Saturday April 21st, the staff, family, friends and special guests presented the crowd with a showcase of ensembles for every occasion. The show featured sharp and classy menswear, trendy looks for women and cute-as-a-button kids' collections. And the looks were only outdone by the low cost on the price tags.
Hosting the special event was honored guest and longtime Impact Thrift supporter, Sheila Fortson-Williams, who is otherwise known as “The Glam Thrifter” for her expertise in finding lux looks for less.
The runway show was a runaway success, with some thrift shoppers interested in buying some of the clothing and accessories right off the models’ backs.
And once you see these ensembles, you won’t wonder why the catwalk meant a catrun right to the register for these fashion-frenzied thrifters.
So without further delay, I present to you...
