Have you seen those cute upcycled handmade skirts that usually are made from used T-shirts or sweaters?
I’ve seen them in a rainbow of colors as well as team colors like Packers or Badgers. They are adorable, and I’ve wanted one since I first noticed them. Not only are they trendy and original, but they put old clothes to good use.
A friend’s mom, who is an expert sewer, is going to be taking on these skirts as a project so I’m very hopeful I’ll be able to put in an order!
If you get just as excited about these things as I do, you might want to check out Goods Made Good, an enterprise of Goodwill, that’s having a show today.
The two-day sale continues 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. today at Goodwill’s new Outlet Center that is located within the Shiner Center at 1341 W. Spencer St. in Appleton. Enter the facility off Outagamie Street.
Goods Made Good products are made from reclaimed clothing that has been donated to Goodwill NCW but couldn’t be sold in its stores. The unique products were sewn by area people with barriers to employment as well as skilled team members.
I checked out Thursday’s event and found lots of tree skirts — simple and elaborate, sweater skirts — with discounted prices, decorative wine bags, pillows, T-shirts cut into strips for scarves, belts turned into bracelets and handbags.
Cute stuff that’s worth checking out.
