09/30/2014 / Junior League of Savannah, Sale Alerts, Shop Local, Shop My Savannah, Thrift Sale
It’s almost time for one of the biggest thrift sales (if not THE biggest) in Savannah. This Saturday marks the Junior League of Savannah’s 67th Annual Thrift Sale and it’s one sale you seriously cannot miss. As many of you know, I am a member of the Junior League of Savannah and I absolutely love it. I’ve met friends that I’ll have forever, have worked on initiatives and projects I never could have imagined otherwise, and I know that each and every day this group of women is making a difference right here in the Savannah community. To make all these initiatives possible though, the league has to raise money too…and that’s where the Thrift Sale comes in. This event is the single largest fundraiser for the Junior League and plays a major part in the amount of money we’re able to give back to the community through projects and donations.
So, how does it work? Each year members, along with their friends, family and co-workers, donate everything from furniture and TV’s to baby clothes and holiday decorations, in order to fill the Savannah Civic Center full of thrift. Then, on Saturday morning, everyone in the community is invited to come and shop said items! There is always so much see and buy and you can bet that there’s always some hidden treasures too. Three years ago I came across a gorgeous Ethan Allen hutch for just $75! After I picked myself up off the floor from shock, I quickly put a sold tag on that baby and off it went to my house.
Now that’ I’ve sold you on going…because seriously it’s the greatest ;)…here are the details…
When: Saturday, October 4 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Where: Savannah Civic Center (301 W. OGLETHORPE AVE, SAVANNAH, GA 31401)
Tickets: Tickets are $5 and can be purchased here.
New this year: The Thrift Sale will only be one day (Oct. 4) and this year includes women’s business, cocktail, and formal attire! (PS: I’ve already seen 2 BCBG dresses with the tags still on…just sayin’.)
Important details: The event is CASH ONLY so make sure you have cash on hand. No strollers or carts allowed.
But wait, there’s more! Each year the Junior League hosts a cocktail party (referred to as the Preview Party) the night before the event where ticket holders can shop the thrift sale early, enjoy dinner and enjoy cocktails all while participating in the Silent and Live Auction! The only catch is that to purchase thrift sale items the night before, you’ll pay double the price listed on the item. This year’s auction is going to be great too. I was just at the Civic Center checking out some of the items and I’m beyond ready to bid. We’re talking Satchel, Kate Spade, Dooney & Burke, Michael Kors, Lilly Pulitzer, and more. I could go on for days. I swear there are hundreds of items. They even have stuff for the men, including an awesome hunting trip! So, here are your Preview Party details….
When: Friday, October 3 – Doors open for Thrift Shopping at 5:30 p.m. from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Where: Savannah Civic Center (301 W. OGLETHORPE AVE, SAVANNAH, GA 31401)

09/06/2014 / Meet Sarah, Shop Local, Shop My Savannah
Good morning, y’all! Today is a very exciting day for ShopMySavannah.com. I am so proud and excited to introduce you to my very first contributor, Sarah. When I first started ShopMySavannah.com in 2010 it was just this tiny blog hosted on blogger.com where I shared my opinion on fashion and featured the best local shops Savannah had to offer. Never in my wildest dreams did I think back then that I would end up with a full-blown website, much less a contributing writer! Like I said, today is a very exciting day. I just know that y’all are going to love Sarah as much as I do. She’s simply fabulous. So…without further ado, let’s meet Sarah….
Meet Sarah Helen Drew
Sarah Drew sometimes forgets she’s not Carrie Bradshaw. Having recently moved from the heart of New York City to sweet Savannah, you will find Sarah bouncing around downtown seeking out the latest trends, meeting new people in the community, reading a great book in Forsyth Park, and smiling at the cutest Chihuahuas (she left Stella, her two pound pup back in the city, wardrobe and all). If you spot Sarah with a dashing Navy Officer, that’s her husband to be. She recently said yes to the dress, of course, after saying yes to the man!
Sarah worked for Vanity Fair Magazine back in NYC and is especially excited to spread her love of fashion, writing, and events in the South. As a contributor, Sarah will explore all the local wonders that Shop My Savannah has brought to life. Regardless of the city, Sarah will always be in a fashion frenzy! Watch out as she dodges the horse-drawn carriages rather than those crazy yellow taxi cabs.
