A new store in College View is having a closet sale today and tomorrow, in which their customers bring in “gently worn” name brand clothes and sell them, splitting proceeds with the store.
The sale is going on until 8 p.m. tonight and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow. Among the brands: Seven, Coach, Ed Hardy, Marc Jacobs, True Religion.
The store — an upscale boutique that opened in May — invited its customers to bring in clothes and got such a response they had to bring all the clothes to a bigger space downstairs.
Rae’n is one of the newer stores in College View — which recently emerged from a city makeover and is open for business again.
The city renovated 48th Street between Pioneers Boulevard and Calvert Street – replacing water pipes, repairing streets and improving storm sewers. The city is adding ornamental lighting and banners, neighborhood signs, benches, planting beds, linear rain gardens, decorative concrete at intersections and a new streetlight at 48th Street and Prescott Avenue. Not all of the work is done yet.
Makeovers tend to be contagious, and I noticed a bible book store has a new awning out front and a new hair salon called Eve has opened up next to rae’n, at 3905 S. 48th St.
Give it a look.
