Oh, hey December! The tree is up, the holiday Pandora station is on repeat, and I’m officially ready for Christmas… who’s with me?? Today I’m talking all about finding high-end items at a great price and there’s a new place to do that here in the Queen City. You may have seen my snaps yesterday (khendley) and wondered what this GW store is all about. GW is a Goodwill concept store and the newest thing to hit uptown Charlotte… but it won’t be here for long. More on that in a minute!
I had the opportunity to get a sneak peek of the store and style some outfits last week for the Scoop Charlotte photo shoot. I was so impressed after walking into the store! Megan from Freckled Italian and Dania from Always Dania were also in attendance and we all put together some pretty cute outfits.
Home goods (and the delicious candy bar!)
Last night I headed back to the store to pick up some goodies. I scored a J.Crew clutch, a grey tunic, and a black Drew tank with leather trim. I had never heard of this brand, but my friend Lindsay who works in fashion said these tops retail for almost $200. I got it for $8.99. Oh, and let’s not forget my most festive item… the tacky Christmas sweater!
All of this for $23!
The great thing about GW that appeals to me is that they have lots of high-end brands of clothing and accessories at ridiculously good prices. The store is now open on the 2nd level of the Epicenter (across from Whiskey River) and will only be open for one week through Sunday, December 6th. Here are the store hours:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: 11am – 7pm
Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 10am – 10pm
Sunday: 11am – 5pm
Charlotte may be continuously growing, but the importance of shopping local and helping a good cause continues to have a big emphasis in our community. I hope y’all get a chance to check it out and thanks for reading 🙂
