Rags to Riches: Thrifting 101



    Sentara Helps Army Vet Take Control of Her Pain

    Whether you want to look good or feel good, the First Class Inc. Lifelong Center (1726 20th St. N.W.) is offering a class that teaches shoppers how to get their bang for a buck.

    This shopping awareness course, offered from 10:30 a.m. to noon this Saturday, Oct. 16th, will provide a list of 50+ thrift shops in the metro area. The seminar will inform students on selecting which tossed items can become their treasure.

    The class ends in a pop-quiz field trip to the Secondi consignment shop -- not to be graded but to see if these shoppers can actually sniff out a great deal.

    You can register for the course online ($29) at takeaclass.org.
