Shop Local ~ Consignment Store Fashion

I love to shop but I think people don't realize that their dollars can make a difference.  When I shop, I keep the fashion in mind as well as the power of those dollars.  I tend to shop in smaller boutiques primarily because of what that means to the shop owner.  I also find that in the smaller settings you get better customer service & you get to know the owners.  There are some great benefits to knowing the owners of the shops.

They start to know your style & will alert you of new inventory often when the merchandise hasn't even hit their floors yet.  You also find out about the best sales even if they don't have a newsletter.  

I like knowing who I am spending my money with & knowing their passion for the business they own.  It feels much better knowing you are a part of their dreams.  I also get caught up in their excitement of their merchandise.  I have gone into many of the places I enjoy shopping wearing something I got from there maybe a year ago & hearing "You got that here!  It looks great!"  When I showed this video to one of the owners of one of the shops I visit frequently, she was able to point out every single jacket & sweater I bought from her.  Try that in the mall.  So without further adieu, here are my fun jackets & sweaters.  AND if you are in the Tampa area, please stop in and see these ladies, they are all wonderful people.
