Memphians are lucky to have two opportunities to shop excellent vintage clothing in the next few days. The best part? Someone else has done the pile-sifting for you.
Crew of the movie Losers Take All spent weeks looking for the best '80s clothing in Memphis thrift stores, and this afternoon they're selling everything they found. The sale starts at 2 PM at 515 S. Main. Cash only.
For more info check out the event's Facebook page.
UPDATE: The sale will run until 10 PM, and I can personally verify that they have some great pieces. Click after the jump to see my finds!
And Saturday, Theatre Memphis is unloading a ton of old costumes and props they've collected over the years to clean out their closets and raise some money for improvements. At their Overstock Yard Sale, you'll be able to find great pieces (many from the '50s, '60s, and '70s) for sale prices.
Be sure to arrive at 630 Perkins Extended early: the sale runs from 8 AM - 1 PM, and for the last hour they'll have "grab bags" available - all you can fit inside for $5.
At the Losers Take All sale today, I found this skirt ($4) and pair of glasses ($5)...
...these three blouses ($5 each)...
...and by far the best piece, this purple/brown leather jacket for just $15!
