Sneak peek: Goodwill Goes GLAM


On Wednesday, I received exclusive access to the Goodwill Goes GLAM sales floor at Blaisdell Exhibition Hall, even before the VIP pre-sale that takes place tonight. I felt like Tim Gunn was breathing down my neck, in a fun way.  I had a half hour to make it work and identify my glam picks for our bargain-hunting readers.

But first I spoke with Laura Smith, President/CEO of Goodwill. “Last year, there were 200 people waiting in line to come in on the first day, and we expect even more this year,” she said. “They know that when they purchase items at Goodwill, they’re helping people with employment barriers, to get jobs.”

Here’s a look at some of my GLAM picks:
