Goodwill, Holiday Fashion, High Tea, TV....such fun!

I joined Goodwill SA Marketing Manager, Melissa Mireles, this morning for an appearance on the Saturday morning news!
Isn't Melissa cute...she looks so great after having her second child this past October!

Melissa brought some great DIY ideas from Pinterest using items found at Goodwill SA.  I discussed dressing for holiday parties and evenings out with items from Goodwill at Bitters and Hwy. 281.
I love doing these appearances with Goodwill...it is always fun!
This time I got to watch one of the chefs from the Emily Morgan Hotel prepare a segment on the high Christmas tea events they have planned around the fireplace in their amazing lobby....complete with crumpets and teas that bloom!
And this woman of a certain age looked lovely as she was interviewed.
If you are looking for party attire in the San Antonio area, make sure you stop by a Goodwill location.  And may everyone have a fabulous weekend!!


  1. OMG - are those stirrup pants?

    I hope the point of those was that some things that happen at Goodwill should stay at Goodwill!

    1. No Rose, those are not stirrup pants...they are a beautiful pair of silk patterned red pants which are right on trend for this year and perfect for holiday parties...some smart lady is going to snatch these up at Goodwill!

  2. Wow, that is so exciting that you were on tv. Love those jackets.

  3. Hi Pam,
    What an exciting way to spend your day. I love your mix of colors and textures. You have a way of pulling together a fantastic look. Thanks for sharing a peek into your adventure.
    Happy Holidays!!
    Cheers, Heather

  4. Oooh, how exciting to be on TV. I love those moustache mugs too.

  5. Hey Pam you are becoming quite the celebrity! You will be the next Oprah I am telling you!

  6. Hey Pam you are becoming quite the celebrity! You will be the next Oprah I am telling you!

  7. Oh wow I wish I could see your segment, I think I'd develop an excitement-rash if there was a regular thrifting spot on the telly! Fantastic job Pam! xo

  9. Congrats on your TV appearance, Pam - you do a great job getting the word out about Goodwill! We just bought an occasional table there today, really pretty and for a great price : >

  10. My daughter and I shop Goodwill. The search is always fun. She just purchased a lovely dress for an upcoming formal...for under $10. It's good to pass unused items to Goodwill too.

  11. Bravo Pam!
    I wish I could watch your show. Must be full of precious ideas!
    Keep on :-)

  12. Goodwill is my favorite thrift store, hands down. I love that they help soooo many people and that they don't discriminate. I love their prices ... A great place.
