A note about the Thread Social sale, ending today at 7pm, from a reader: "This sale was wonderful. I went today (Thurs 12th) after work and it wasn't crowded, there were maybe 4-5 people other than me, and there were a lot of sizes and beautiful, beautiful dresses, most priced from 150-200 dollars."
