We actually interviewed Retrofittings’ Chairperson Tamie Sullivan this week in Cincy Chic and she did a great job of explaining what the concept is, the importance of the event as a fundraiser, and the trends you’ll see tomorrow!
Speaking of trends… I was just talking with Lee Krombolz who we’re working with to develop a holiday trends story for. I found out he’s a huge supporter of Retrofittings, and has been for years. He created a great piece of jewelry for the event this year. From what I understand, it will be sold in a live auction at the event. I got a sneak peek of the piece and I love it! I love that gold is making a big come back… and floral too!
I also found out another nugget of Retrofittings yumminess. People who are attending RetroFittings will be able to use their tickets and receive a 25% discount on any clothing purchase at area St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Stores the weekend after the event.
I’m going with my girlfriend who I make jewelry with, and we love buying up old necklaces at thrift stores and garage sales. So, we can’t wait to get ideas at the show and head to the store and buy up some vintage bling with our discount! Hope to see you there!
