If you've never made it along to a Lifeline $2 Clothing Sale there are a few things you will want to know to expect. Firstly this isn't just any sale, it's a monster sale that happens twice each year and it is complete madness. Literally tonnes and tonnes of clothing are waded through by mad keen thrifters and fashionistas along with those who just love a bargain.
You have a chance of finding anything from a vintage gems to designer threads and everything else in between. To score yourself some great pieces you need be prepared because you're going to up against a lot of competition with the masses that head along. However it's great fun to get in there and rummage around and see what luck you have.
- Get along and be there for when the doors open and make sure you're already fuelled up on a good breakfast you won't want to break for a snack with some many others doing the same.
- Wear clothing that will keep you cool as it gets hot rubbing shoulders with all those people. Also consider wearing items that are easy for you to try clothing on over the top. There are a few change rooms available, but once again unless you want to join that line up you're better off trying pieces on over something else you're already wearing.
- Take a market trolley or large bag that you can pop anything you're remotely interested in so that you can fill it up and take a break I do mini cull and edits of what will be keeper. If you don't take a trolley or bag you will be struggling carrying it all in your arms.
