We’re gearing up for our biggest shopping event of the year (Seasonably Chic Showcase Nov. 7, 10am-2pm, at the Phoenix downtown) so I had to do a little R&D for the event, right? 🙂 I stopped by Once Upon a Child (OUAC) and Clothes Mentor (click here to read the story about Katie, my friend and the owner of the local franchises of both stores). They will be at our holiday shopping event this Saturday, but I had a couple in-store coupons to use so I decided to check them out early. Oh by the way – if you love a great deal – make sure you get on their mailing lists to get emailed about all their AWESOME deals. I got a $5 off a $10 purchase coupon for OUAC and a $25 off a $50 purchase coupon for Clothes Mentor. They’re right next door to each other in Hyde Park, and I just haaaaaappened to have a meeting nearby so I popped in.
No joke, in the 30 minutes I had before my meeting, I dropped some things that didn’t fit Lola anymore to the front desk at OUAC. Then I went shopping for new shoes for her so I could use my coupon. I found three shoes for $3.50 each, and they ended up paying me $8 for some of the items I brought in to sell. So after the coupon, and the cash for stuff I brought in, they paid me about $5 to take three pairs of shoes out of their store! LOVE IT!
Then, I went next door to Clothes Mentor and in 5 minutes flat, I found three dresses and two sweaters for $50, which I used my $25 off coupon on, and I walked away only paying $25 for HUNDREDS of dollars worth of stuff had I paid retail on everything (seriously, everything I got was name brand — Banana Republic, White House Black Market, Michael Kors, etc)
Below is a pic of me wearing one of the new sweaters I got (only $9) and Lola wearing a new pair of Converse shoes (yes…. $3.50 for Converse baby shoes which were barely worn and I just saw a new pair of them at Nordstrom for $25!)
Both Clothes Mentor and Once Upon a Child will have pop-up boutiques at the showcase, along 45 other AMAZING local boutiques and vendors so you can get all your shopping done under one roof! Click here to learn more and RSVP!
