The sale features formal wear for both men and women, shoes, handbags and boatloads of jewelry and accessories for holiday and special occasions. There are also special racks of designer, vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces. The Farewell Goodwill Glitter Sale will be held on November 9th and 10th from 9 am to 6 pm both days at the Seattle Goodwill Store.   “While the sale has been beloved tradition for the past 35 years, increasing costs over the years have reduced the total dollars we can raise for our mission and we believe that there are better ways to support our mission,” said Seattle Goodwill Vice President of Operations Funmi Popoola. “As we look to the future together, we will continue raising funds for free job training and education programs in the most innovative and effective ways possible.
