My husband grew up in Opelika, Alabama and he still subscribes to the Opelika Observer which is a local newspaper that we get in the mail. This past weekend, I was having breakfast and noticed the front page article of a recent copy - "Local Fringe Boutique going to Martha Stewart Show."
Apparently, Martha has invited consignment shops all over the country to participate in the audience of her upcoming September 20th taping in New York. A consignment shop in Opelika called Fringe Consignment Boutique has been invited to join the fun.
So, the owner, Stacie Money (her name really is Money), decided to hold a contest and allow one lucky patron (and a friend!) an all expense paid trip to New York (along with tickets to the show)! The girl who won the contest actually gave her spots to her best friends and then agreed to pay her own way, making it a real girl's weekend.
I thought this was too cool! So, I got on line and looked her up. In addition to her website, Stacie also has her own blog! Here is the link: http://fringe-midtown.blogspot.com/ The blog has links to her favorite consignment/fashion blogs as well as pics of current items coming in. Like:
So I'm thinking - since Opelika is soooo close to Auburn and every girl knows the college crowd has their finger on the pulse as far as fashion! When next I am in Auburn for a game (maybe against Clemson), I know where I will be spending a little time!
