Thrift Store Project Runway

Who doesn't love a great thrift store find? There's something to be said about spotting a gem amongst the discarded items from others' closets. Red Hat Society Members are no strangers to thrift shopping. In fact, many new Members in the Sisterhood purchase their first hats and pieces of regalia at local thrift stores, and some Chapters even host consignment shopping days.

This week, we would like to share a unique event hosted by Ruby Rambler Mary Elliott, from Ontario, Canada. This quick write-up and the featured photos were submitted by Canadian RHS Ambassador Jan Lukas.

Thrift Store Project Runway
Participants walked the runway and showed off their best deals- Sewing Skills- Crafty Creations (spray bomb hat or shoes- duct tape shoes) in our Red Hat or Pinkie colours.

Red squares and Red Duct Tape was put down for Red carpet for models to walk down.  Then the models told the audience about their outfits.  Each model was given along stem red rose as well as fashion loot bags.
Tea/coffee, dessert and sweet trays were enjoyed by the participants.
This is a great way to show off the amazing thrift buys and creative talents while enjoying the fun and friendship of our Red Hat Sisters. 

Isn't that a great idea? You can see the joy on their faces as they make their way down the red carpet.
