Markdowns and Mocktails features steep discounts on vintage clothing

Big deals, good drinks

Grease Kelly Vintage and Runaround Sue Vintage are partnering to host Markdowns and Mocktails: a major vintage clearance sale on Sun. Jan. 26 at Tin Roof.

The event will include marked down items and mocktails made by Kathleen, a beloved bartender at Tin Roof who is nearing the end of her long-time employment at the bar. Those in attendance will enjoy shopping and non-alcoholic drinks (regular drinks will be on tap too, fear not), 12 p.m.-4 p.m.

Lovers of vintage items and participants of #SoberJanuary alike were kept in mind in the planning of this event. The sale is being labeled as an “all-things-must-go” clearance, as these sellers are anxious to clear out their old inventory to make room for all new finds; most items will be on sale for $10 or less.

While this event is free, those interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP on Facebook.
