Select Seconds Holds Their Most Popular Sale THIS Saturday!


The designer handbags currently on display at the Select Seconds thrift store in Downtown Frederick will be available for sale starting at 10:00 AM on Saturday, July 23rd.

Over 60 designer handbags from popular brands like Dooney & Bourke, Michael Khors, Kate Spade, Coach, and Vera Bradley are priced from $9.00 to $95.00. Those interested in purchasing a designer handbag from the Select Seconds window display are encouraged to get in line early. According to Fran Norwood, designer of the Select Seconds window displays, this sale is their most popular; “In the past, we’ve had people show up at 7:00 PM on Friday evening to get in line. However, most people interested in buying a handbag start getting in line very early on Saturday morning.”

Select Seconds volunteers will begin handing out numbers to those in line approximately 5 minutes before the store opens on Saturday. Each individual that receives a number will be able to purchase 2 handbags. If you are interested in purchasing additional bags, you may get back in line, after your first transaction, to receive a second number.

All designer bags sold at Select Seconds are sold in “as is” condition and cannot be returned/refunded. Select Seconds cannot guarantee the authenticity of any handbags sold. Due to the popularity of this sale, items cannot be put on hold. Payment is due upon final selection of your items.

"Shopping at Select Seconds is a wonderful way for community members to support Frederick Memorial Hospital in meeting the healthcare needs of Frederick County and the surrounding area” said Joe Collins, FMH Auxiliary President. Select Seconds is run by volunteers of the FMH Auxiliary. All proceeds from sales at Select Seconds currently go toward fundraising efforts for the James M Stockman Cancer Institute.

Donations of gently used clothing, shoes, accessories, household items, and small appliances are accepted. The thrift shop also accepts and sells collectibles, antiques, jewelry, linens, small furniture, toys, and gift items. When designing her window displays, Fran enjoys seeing the high-quality items being donated to Select Seconds. “The community is so generous to Select Seconds with their donations throughout the year. I’m always so impressed with the quality of items that are donated to us.”

If handbags aren’t your thing, Select Seconds features many other sales throughout the year. Stop by during regular business hours to see what’s featured in their next window display. If you have any questions about items for sale at Select Seconds, one of their generous volunteers will be happy to assist you.
