    Grab a girlfriend, or two, and register for this “Invitation Only” event!


    This year we are thrilled to add some new shops and stops on our tour! And, YOU are invited to participate in this fun-filled thrifty shopping adventure.


    Fun Power Packed Thrift Shopping Day
    DIVA STOP 1: Barb Tobias’ Mountain Home! Experience the Diva Party/Sale. You may ask, What is the Diva Sale? Well, Barb Tobias’ annual garage sale has been such a huge success that the name garage sale just doesn’t do it justice, thus this extravaganza has been aptly named … The Diva Sale. Amidst the shopping frenzy, set your coveted items aside (on hold), sit back, relax, and enjoy gourmet delights or a refreshing beverage before resuming your shopping.


    DIVA STOP 2:
    After delighting in Barb’s Diva Sale prepare to be whisked away to more splendid shopping at a chic Englewood boutique … The Second Time Shop, where more treasures await. After discovering fabulous fashions take a few moments for a chair massage and get those muscles back in order for more exciting things yet to come! Of course, indulge in a glass or wine or a refreshing mimosa.


    DIVA STOP 3:
    End your day with a final stop at one of the Diva’s favorite thrift shops … the Littleton arc Thrift Store where discounts, tote bags and delectable goodies await you. Come prepared to duke-it-out to win incredible prizes for:


    Best Thrift Find
    Best Dressed Diva
