See everyone is doing it - even fashion designers!
When I walked onto my back porch this morning, my mom hands me a cutout from the NY Daily News and announces BETSEY JOHNSON is having a yard sale! I was ecstatic, until I realized how far East Hampton is from my current location.
So unfortunately, I will not be able to make the 4 hour trip to East Hampton, where Betsey is hosting her yard sale at 25 Grape Arbor Lane. But boy, do I wish I could drop everything and head on over. Not only do I love yard saling, but I have been enamored with Betsey Johnson’s designs since I was a little girl. Meeting her at her own yard sale would have been epic.
I picture her greeting everyone with,"WELCOME TO BETSEYVILLE!"
The article states she will be selling vintage clothing, accessories, furniture and much, much more. In addition, amNY.com affirms that 5% of proceeds will be donated to Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation. IF YOU ARE IN THE AREA, STOP BY AND SEE WHAT SNAZZY ITEMS OF BETSEY’S YOU CAN SCORE!
Lastly in honor of her yard sale, I am sharing my first Betsey Johnson thrifty thrill. When I was a teeny-bopper, I begged my mom to take me to Woodbury Commons where there was a small Betsey outlet store. We didn’t have a lot of money to spend on a frilly dress or glitzy shoes, but long behold there was a thrifty thrill awaiting my arrival. There were necklaces that read “DOMINA” near the register. The cashier proclaimed they were worn by the models in one of Betsey’s shows. After that little tid-bit I couldn’t walk away and I didn’t have to. The necklaces were only a dollar!
“Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys, they’d just walk around naked at all times.” — Betsey Johnson
