Costume Sale! Costume Sale!

Sweet! Every now and again, a magical day appears on the calendar. It's a day where people have found vintage marching band uniforms, graphite Edwardian morning coats, and tiny hats that look exactly like birds' nests. It is the ACT Costume Sale. And it has appeared on the calendar once again.

Get out your ink pen and write this down: Saturday, March 17 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. 35below at Asheville Community Theatre. Then, draw a starburst around that information and maybe a glittery arrow pointing to it.  You'll be glad you did!

Here's a partial listing of things you can find:
Hats - from Easter Parade confections to sensible straw boaters
Dresses - from caftans to evening wear
Specialty - own a piece from Chicago or check out our "Wearin' of the Green" Saint Patty's Day rack
Other - coats, sleepwear, wedding gowns, and other eclectic pieces

The ACT Costume Sale is a bonafide treasure hunt. We have literally heard people squeal with spontaneous glee when sorting through the racks. On several occasions, we've asked friends where they got that fabulous 50s frock only to be told it was at our own Costume Sale.  And they paid, like, $5.00 for it. Gasp!

Hope to see you there!
