I just found out about this from the Japanese classifieds ads. There will be a used kimono sale in Seattle. "...Guaranteed to be high quality and like new, free of wear and stains." Price ranges are between $50-200, cash or check with ID, no cards. Please do not wear shoes on the mat. All proceeds will be donated to the Seattle Cherry Blossom Festival. First come, first serve. It looks like there will be about 30 kimono. Items listed are: kurotomesode, irotomesode, houmongi, iromuji, tsukesage, komon, tsumugi, wool, hitoe, awase, gauze, haori, michiyuki, coat, fukuro obi, nagoya obi, maru obi, hanhaba obi, komono, etc.

I will not likely be going (cry!) as funds are tight. But if anyone else does go, please share your wins and the experience!
