On November 1st, Thrift Town will release the "uglies", deeming it the place to go for all ugly Christmas sweater needs. Join in the phenomenon that has reached epic proportions by hosting an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party, sign up for a local Ugly Christmas Sweater Fun Run, or simply enjoying wearing a festive frock this season. At Thrift Town, we applaud and support this tradition because let’s be honest, if there’s one thing thrift stores are full of, it’s ugly sweaters.
If the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party is the direction one is headed, here’s a few tips from Thrift Town to help make the most out of this festive occasion.
1. Most people have fond memories of older female relatives at holiday gatherings wearing sweaters with Christmas trees or Jolly Old St. Nick on them, and granted, the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party theme pokes fun at these wardrobe choices. Nobody wants to offend Grandma, so the trick to really having fun at these parties is to mentally separate the Grandma sweater from the Party sweater. Pretend she wouldn’t be hurt by the concept, and above all else, don’t tell her about it, or ask to borrow one of hers (Trust me. I learned this the hard way.).
2. Think un-sexy. There is nothing hot about a Christmas sweater, except maybe if it’s wearing it in the tropics. The uglier the better.
3 . Make it fun! Invitations set the tone for any party. As mentioned above, Thrift Town supports this tradition, and in the spirit of giving, created a free downloadable invitation on their website to use for your gathering.
4. Rather not mess up the house? Do an Ugly Sweater Pub Crawl.
5. Sweaters not your thing, too itchy? There are plenty of other tacky accessories you can don such as blinking holiday pins, singing ties, giant jingle bell necklaces, and the ever popular dangling Christmas tree light earrings, all of which can be found at Thrift Town.
6. Deck the halls with tacky Thrift Town finds.
7. Speaking of tacky, why not play up the whole Ugly Christmas Sweater tacky theme, and extend it to your appetizer menu; sausage ball muffins, corn dogs, fruitcake squares or dump cookies.
8. Award prizes for the ugliest, tackiest, most heinous sweater worn. A Fruitcake or Christmas socks are great prize ideas that keep true to the party theme. Fruitcake tins and festive socks can also be found at Thrift Town.
9. Take a photo of yourself wearing the Ugly Christmas Sweater, and submit it to Thrift Town’s Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest for a chance to win a $100 gift card. No purchase necessary.
10. Finally, when it's time to retire the ugly sweater, or want to trade up from last year's, donate it to Thrift Town, and receive a $5 off coupon while supplies last.
