Goodwill's Retique opens this weekend in the Third Ward and it already has plenty of specials to celebrate. A smaller, boutique version of Goodwill, Retique will showcase a new version of second-hand goods with beautiful displays of the best Goodwill has to offer.

Hit the store  tonight with a "Be Beautiful Bar" from 6-9 p.m. Steal some make-up and application tips from beauty professionals under the soothing sounds of a cello and violin duet. While supplies last, attendees will receive a free beauty goodie bag.

On Friday, indulge in a "Chic Treats Night" from 6-9 p.m. Join the Third Ward's new Javino for wine, cheese and chocolate at Retique. A free sample box of Quality Candy goes to shoppers while supplies last.

But the celebration doesn't stop there. Join Goodwill Retique Saturday morning from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for "Fashion, Flair and Hair." Renowned Milwaukee fashion advisor Bjorn Nasset helps you shop for just the right look and Beauty on Water provides you with a few hair tips. Shoppers will get free hair product samples while supplies last.
