Resale's Night Out

The idea for FK’s Resale’s Night Out was hatched last year when Boutique’s Manager, Stephanie Smith, headed up to New York City for Fashion’s Night out.  She had so much enthusiasm to share about her experience that I decided to bring a taste of NYC’s celebration to Finders Keepers for our special customers this year, and we have been planning for months. Tickets are $5 and 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales will be given to our favorite charity, Refugee Resettlement and Immigration Services of Atlanta www.rrisa.org
Finders Keepers Fashions and Finders Keepers Boutique + Menswear will both close at 6pm on this night (Thursday Sept. 6) to get ready for the event and will re-open for ticket holders only at 7pm.
Finders Keepers Fashions starts the event off with a fall preview fashion show featuring some special RRISA staffers along with FK staffers stomping the runway in looks put together by our own Jamilla Hill. Stylist Lillian Charles wows us every time she comes to our events as she pulls together fun looks for anyone who asks, so be sure to ask! Knikita, our resident caterer, has come up with tasty treats for the evening and our whole staff is ready to make this night fun and memorable.
Fall Fashion spotlights via live mannequins start the night at FK Boutique + Menswear with looks put together by FK Staffer, Carrie Tatro, known for her avant garde approach to styling. Barbara Warren’s spread from Tastefully Simple is sure to please while the entire staff is on hand to ensure all Resale’s Night Out customers enjoy their shopping experience. Tweets and FB Posts are expected regularly from Stephanie so be sure to follow the FK FB and Twitter pages.  Check our website to sign up for these.
I am really excited about this event for several reasons. Resale fashion styling requires way more talent than regular retail styling and I am lucky to have a staff gifted in transforming “used clothes” into fabulous fashion for a fraction of the cost, making our shoppers look great on a budget. I am also grateful to my FK employees, who are enthusiastically coming together to make this event happen. Honestly, I could not pull off this event without their willingness and expertise to go above and beyond for me and for Resale’s Night Out. Lastly but importantly, it is a charity event and a donation equal to 5% of total sales for the night will be given to RRISA in addition to money from ticket sales. I hope you will attend and enjoy our first ever Resale Night Out Event.
