Dressin' Up.......

I have been so excited to tell you about this new adventure that I, along with my mom, and good friend Bonnie are on. We teamed up to open an upscale consignment boutique, Dressin' Up. In case you are wondering how we are going to run all of these stores, I don't think I have ever mentioned how our stores are set up. Bonnie owns the whole building which she beautifully restored and in this building you will find her gift shop called Outside In, and a salon called Reflections on the ground level. Then in the upper level, you will find us, Backyard Candle Co. and now Dressin' Up across the hall! Originally, the two stores upstairs were apartments. We do ALOT of helping eachother out and so there is ALOT of running up and down the stairs, but we love it! I will post a picture of the outside soon so you can see how cool it is!

We are hoping to open next week, June 2nd but we still have a lot of work to get done before then. Our town doesnt have any stores like this and with times being so tough for everyone, we thought consignment would be the way to go. That way people can get name brand clothes at affordable prices.





Isn't the brick wall awesome! One day last winter, Bonnie and I were bored and tore into the paneling that was there to expose the brick. Who am I kidding, I mostly watched. Seriously, I have never met a woman who can work as hard as Bonnie can. She can and will do ANYTHING!!!!




This chandelier is soooooo cool and this picture doesn't even begin to do it justice!




We are continually taking clothes, so if you live in the area, and have clothes you would like to bring in we would love to consign them for you! The store hours will be the same as Backyard hours which are: Tues-Fri: 10-5 and Sat. 10-3. We will be closed on Sunday and Monday.
