It’s almost time for Norwich’s Nearly New Sale!

Get ready, fashionistas and bargain hunters: Norwich’s Nearly New Sale is nearly here.

The sale, sponsored by the Norwich Women’s Club, starts on Friday at Tracy Hall in Norwich and continues through the weekend. The fun begins at 7 p.m. with the sale’s grand opening. The sale will be shoppable from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. Sunday closes out the three-day event with a half-price sale from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. before wrapping up with a $15 bag sale from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

There will be clothing for the whole family, so it’s definitely work a look. I’ve heard there are great deals to be had — pretty sure our own Maggie had a v positive experience last year, when she found a super warm winter coat for a steal.

More deets on the sale can be found here.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (if you enjoy thrift shopping in the White River Junction area)

That’s right, Revolution’s annual mega-sale — where there’s plenty of clearance marked down to $5 and $1, and sometimes they even pay you to take stuff away — is happening downtown today and Saturday.

Here’s some scenes from this morning, not more than 20 minutes after the sale opened, and when I found a strong contender for my wedding dress next month for five dollars:

Revolution is not only a business and clothing store featuring upcycled clothes and indie designers, but a community hub promoting the arts and social issues.

Coming soon: 12 more parking spaces at Listen’s WRJ location

Yas, Listen, yasssssss. This has been the plan for quite a while but couldn’t happen when construction was happening on the bridge over the Connecticut River.

Walking/public transportation is the best and all, but I think my fellow thrifters and I will be pumped to have a little more breathing room in the Bourne Center parking lot when things get bumpin’ on the hunt for ~deals~.

Don’t forget: Listen is also planning to move into the Bridgman’s furniture building on the Miracle Mile in Lebanon, consolidating its inventory down from its downtown Lebanon store and White River Junction furniture store (that is, the old 25,000 Gifts building — not the Bourne Center building referenced above).

From mid-June:

“We have had on our strategic plan how we are going to address our space constraints,” said Kyle Fisher, executive director of Listen. “So we have been on the lookout for something that meets our needs for a long time but it took a back seat when we built our River Point Plaza store” in White River Junction.

OK, so, that’s a thing I just made up, but look at all the THRIFTY opportunities happening in the Upper Valley tomorrow, according to our very own Valley Calendar.
