If you happened by DreamWrights over the past week, you couldn’t help but notice the conglomeration of stuff: dresses, suits, uniforms, sewing machines, fabric, shoes, hats-a-plenty and sundries galore. Prior to the sale, the Facebook postings attracted a lot of attention. The sale did not disappoint, bringing in a record amount of income for DreamWrights.
But what was most remarkable about the sale, was the shoppers and browsers. Shoppers came from far and wide and from many different walks of life. And, with very different (and unique) buying criteria. As expected, a good number of shoppers came from regional theatres seeking costumes. People shopping for theatres in Scranton, Delaware, Hershey, and New Holland were among those rummaging.
A few were film makers looking for costumes for upcoming projects. There were people getting a jump on Halloween, brides looking for a deal, and a bunch of Cosplayers looking to fashion their favorite character. Reenactors found delight in our large selection of military uniforms for sale. Religious groups snatched up goodies for their productions. We even had people looking for dresses and accessories for retirement home glamour shots. But the award for most unique shopper must go to the people who were looking and bought a wedding dress for their pet llama on her special day.
I know right?! Why didn’tI think to buy my llama’s wedding dress at the DreamWrights sale, you ask?! Well, you’re in luck; we are having another costume and dress sale September 8 – 10. Please mark your calendar and keep your eyes peeled for more details as we get closer.
