Day 27: How does this look?!


This week’s delivery!

Although I had sporadically used Door to Door Organics last year, I couldn’t resist the buy one get one free offer they sent me at the beginning of the year.

One disadvantage to shopping organically, and locally, is that coupons are few and far between. So, I’m happy using them whenever I can!

In this case, all of the produce was FREE!

Yep, all I paid for were the chicken breasts, peanut butter packets (great for
“emergency snacks!”), the Boulder Canyon chips, and the brick of cheese!

So, this week we tried
Zeppe’s Italian Market: a small deli & to-go meals with a few shelves of Italian staples.
Fruitful Yield: discounted vitamins and healthy foods- very knowledgeable employees- a must for those with food allergies or sensitivities.
Trader Joe’s: yes, I couldn’t resist. Not truly small, but it is one of my favorites!
Dentist, Dr. Mark Curcio: Nervous about having your choppers checked? He’s your guy.
Posh Boutique: A great women’s consignment shop with both resale and new clothing, purses, and jewelry. All in a welcoming boutique setting.
Fat Ricky’s: A good choice on those occasions you want to over-indulge with super-cheesy sandwiches. Not healthy, but fresh ingredients.

Day 25: Women’s consignment done right!

We’ve already found that Back on the Rack is a great consignment spot for kids’ clothes. But, that doesn’t help with my clothes.

Just like the kids’ clothes, I donate a great deal of it, but there are a few that I’d prefer to consign. I tried Clothes Mentor and Plato’s Closet last year & wasn’t impressed with either place. So, following Jennifer’s (owner of Back on the Rack) advice, I tried Posh Style: Fashion & Decor Boutique.

I don’t know how I have lived here 10 years without ever knowing Posh existed. Owner Karen does consignment right!

Going to shop? It feels like you’re in an actual boutique: organized, clean, and a great chandelier too!

Want to sell? Just make an appointment, don’t worry, it doesn’t take long, they just want to be able to give you their full attention.

Hate the idea of resale? You still need to go- one half of the store is all new!

So, really, Posh is the both of best worlds. Love resale but your best friend hates it? Now you can both happily shop- though I’m betting she’ll find something amazing from the “new to you” side.

What brands can you expect? Obviously it changes frequently, but today there was no shortage of Seven for All Mankind, Joe’s Jeans, and Lucky (none of them over $35!). Dresses, coats, shirts, sweaters, even Prom dresses & Pink if your daughter is interested. Plenty of Ann Taylor, J Crew, and Anthropologie clothes; great purses & shoes too.

Though I didn’t find jeans, I did find a cute, casual short-sleeve sweater for $2.00!
(These Michael Kors just popped up on her site tonight!)

Although she does have a website, I like her Facebook page better, so that’s the link.

Any other favorite consignment shops for women’s clothes?
