Day 1….Success!

Thanks to all who stopped by ReStyle’s grand opening on a wet and windy day.  They say that it’s good luck to have rain on your wedding day, so maybe that holds true for retail as well?!  Either way, it was wonderful to see everyone enjoying the store and all that it has to offer.  I learned a few things during the day that I’ll share with you below:

1)  I need to add a kids section to keep the little ones entertained!

2)  Helium balloons don’t float in the cold weather…..not at all…..really.

3)  There are others like myself who feel that Albany deserves to have a quality resale shopping experience located right here in N Albany.

Again, thanks to all who stopped by and for those who didn’t have a chance to, please be sure to stop in soon.  And when you do stop in, be sure to bring those items that are just hanging out all lonely in your closet!

Lastly, be sure to mark your calendars for a wine tasting gala on Apr 9th from 5pm – 9pm here at ReStyle.  We’ll have wine to try, appetizers and time to socialize.  Hope to see you there!

Getting Close!

We’re down to the wire.  It’s the bottom of the 9th and the game is tied.  The fourth quarter with a few seconds on the clock.  Ok, maybe too may sports metaphores, but I do feel a pressure to perform akin to what professional athletes must face.  I mean proper product placement, gleaming windows and what snacks to serve are critical matters people!

So maybe I’m being a bit dramatic, but I am excited to say that I have almost all of the consignments priced and ready to go and just a few finishing touches are needed in order to be ready to open the store for all of you on Monday!  This evening while finishing up a few loose ends at the shop I had a sweet young man pop his head in to ask if he could purchase a specific item that was on one of the mannequins.  I told him that unfortunately I could not sell any items until the official opening.  He then offered to pay extra to procure the item.  I had to admire his desire to buy the dress for his fiance but held firm explaining it wouldn’t be fair. Needless to say he and his fiance will be there at 10AM ready to grab the item.  This makes me wonder if I should have some security on hand to help regulate you folks!  Just teasing – I’m sure it will all be friendly and good times and I can’t wait to see you there!

Keep ‘Em Coming!

In the past week I’ve been meeting lots of lovely ladies such as Cindy, Stephanie and Krista who are bringing lovely items into ReStyle to be consigned.  I’m thrilled that they are trusting me to sell their items and am happy to see all of the sad lonely clothing racks filling up!

It’s also been great to be past “most” of the sanding and painting and my hands are no longer being cleaned with paint thinner each night!  So glad that I already have my mani and pedi scheduled at Blush Salon in the coming weeks – wohoo!

Here’s a few photos of how the space is coming along.  Still on target for a March 29th opening date and can’t wait to see all of you there!

Deliveries, deliveries and more deliveries!

So, I have all sorts of both new and used and merchandise arriving at the shop daily.  The UPS delivery boy has become my new best friend.  Almost all of the physical labor work (painting, calking, etc) is done and now comes the fun part of decorating and setting up shop!  Yeah!  We’re now open to accept consignments on Tues from 9 – 12 and Thur from 3- 6.  If these times don’t work for you feel free to give me a call and we can make alternate arrangements.  Just give me a call at 541-979-2977.  Can’t wait to see you and all of your treasures!

Anticipated store opening date of March 29th!  Can’t wait to see you!

Here’s a photo of one of the items I purchased for sale from Etsy.com.  Hope you like it!

All of the pendent lights went up today in the shop and the chandeliers in the dressing rooms are my favorite – so romantic and chic!

Tadda….drum roll please……..the official flyer that with information about where and when to bring your consignment items into ReStyle will be circulated starting next week.

So now is the time to start going through your closets, your friends closetes, your storage unit for stylish clothing and furniture items to bring in and recycle while getting some cash or credit.  The times when consignments will be accepted are detailed on the flyer, but I can also be flexible, so feel free to give me a ring at (541)979-2977.  Can’t wait to see all of you in the coming weeks/months. We’re still shooting to be open by the end of March.

Bellow is a photo of a great print that I purchased on Etsy.com that’s just waiting for you down at the shop.. ,,,you will not be disappointed!
