I only wore them once

"I only wore them once." It's something we hear a lot from our consignors. Maybe they purchased the piece for a special event or maybe the sizing was just too uncomfortable. Well these to-die-for unbelievably adorable Tory Burch shoes were just the case: the consignor wore them to her wedding! Fantabulous shoes peeking out from a glamorous gown is a trend I'm definitely into. A friend of mine got married over the summer in a traditional Hindu wedding celebration. Her own little secret: royal blue Jimmy Choo stilletos. (Now if she never wears THOSE bad boys again I'll cry foul... unless ofcourse she consigns them... Hey, a girl can dream!)

Fall cleaning is obviously in full swing here in Atlanta - made very evident by the new arrivals marching in through our front door like ants to a picnic! Check out pictures of some of the beautiful pieces.

p.s. We are now accepting holiday decor! We'll accept better holiday decorations until November 30th.

Michelle Hammer's Fall Gardening Work Shop

Here are pictures from Michelle Hammer's fall gardening workshop from last Saturday. She's a fan favorite, and with her enthusiasm and hands-on approach it's easy to see why! She's hosting a pumpkin/flower sale this Saturday in the garden area beside our store, which will open at 9:30am!
