Please note we have stopped taking winter clothes effective immediately.  We need to make room for our wonderful new spring collection! We will however continue to take purses and shoes. You can always get your prom dresses ready, as we will accept them at any time.

In other consignment news, we have installed and are working with a new point of sale system.  A special thanks for everyone’s patience as we learn and train on this system. Unfortunately, the inventory online search is unavailable at this time, but will be back up and running again soon!

In related news our rewards program is in transition. As we shift to the new POS system, we have had an opportunity to revamp our rewards program for the better. Watch for great savings to come in your email including customer only promotions!  If you have a $5.00 coupon out from our previous program, it will not be forgotten!  By mid-spring we will plan to have our new reward program in place, so stay tuned!
