Saturday night was REO Town’s Second Annual Thrift Store Gala. My friend Sarah and I went again and had a blast. The idea is that you rock the night away in your best thrift store duds. They sell all kinds of fun thrifty treasures and knickknacks as well as provide entertainment.
My dress this year was an awesome velvet number I picked up at Goodwill. I think it was somewhere around $5. I actually bought it because just because and pulled it out for this event. I didn’t buy it for a purpose but I always figured I could wear it for the gala.
We had such a great time. REO Town is a section of Lansing that has really been trying to make a comeback. They’ve been holding more and more events to raise money and I’m glad they have proven to be successful.
Just like last year there were burlesque dancers and a “Ms. Thrift” Contest. REO Town’s Good Truckin Diner catered and Sleepwalker Spirits and Ale provided custom brews for the event.
The party went on until 2, but we left at about 11. We stayed for the Ms. Thrift pageant and then bolted. At that point we had already done and seen anything, so it was time to go. Plus it was the night Ivan got home from Texas and I was ready to see him.
