I was lucky enough to be invited to a blogger field trip hosted by Savers thrift store. We all met downtown and took a party bus to the suburbs to visit the brand new thrift store! The Savers we visited had just opened the week before and it was massive. I had never been to one before so I was pretty blown away. Savers is a department store style thrift store that is organized, clean, and the staff was super nice. Savers has been around since the 1950's and is across the nation! Saver's recycles the garments that do not sell in stores and all of the proceeds for the sold merchandise is donated to local non-profit charities.
It was a totally different experience than our usual thrift trips that require us to try clothes on top of our current outfits (not very easy to do while wearing a cute dress!) and staff that was excited to see that we were excited!
I'm excited to announce that Savers has given me the chance to spread the love to you!
One lucky reader will get a $50 Gift Certificate to experience Savers for themselves!

We also got the opportunity to interview and chat with celebrity stylist Eric Himel and find out a bit more about how he got started
Just itching to go in!
