Whoo Hoo! The clearance sale is coming back to Richmond! I bought my wedding shoes for $8 at the last Richmond sale (retail was $248) and wound up getting most of my bridesmaids their dresses at the last Charlottesville sale (for $30).
This sale isn’t wedding specific, but it’s sure to have lots of bridal and special occasion stuff. They always do!
If you go, go EARLY. Everything is reasonably organized on the first day, but it can be total chaos a few days later. They replenish a few times during the sale, but they don’t usually tell anyone what days that will happen.
When you arrive, they’ll give you a trash bag and a price list. If you see anything that has potential, put it in your bag and keep moving. When you’re done, sit down and go through your bag to make final decisions.
There WILL be ebay resellers there trying to find popular items, so if you have a particular bridesmaid dress in mind, bring a friend and move quickly to get it.
Here’s what the price lists looked like at recent sales:
