Consignment Sale Comes to Montgomery County!

Seasonal consignment shopping is a fast growing trend, especially for baby and children's items. Kids grow so fast, and items like clothes, strollers, car seats, cribs and toys seem barely used. It is for this reason that Tot Swap, Maryland's largest consignment sale for kids, babies, and teens, has added a new summer sale in addition to a fall and spring sale at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Gaithersburg.

“Families come in, they bring their merchandise and they resell it to other families who are in need of toys, shoes, bedding, DVDs, books, and clothes. We have tons of anything and everything for children at a fraction of the cost,” said Totswap’s  Robyn Rutland.

Too Soon? Community Reacts to Lululemon Store Reopening

 

Lululemon Athletica announced Tuesday, June 14th, that they will reopen the newly renovated Bethesda store on Friday, June 24th. 

We stopped by Bethesda Avenue to see what the community thought about the recent news.  There were mixed emotions about the news but for the most part, people were happy to see the store re-open its doors.

 

“It’s a tragic thing that happened a few months ago, but you have to move on in a positive light and I think it is time for the store to do that,” said Virginia resident Emily Duus.

 

In March, the store was the scene of a homicide, where employee Jayna Murray was pronounced dead.  Her co-worker Brittany Norwood has since been charged in Murray's murder. They both were 30 years old. Click here to read the full story.

All That Glitters: Laura Lee Designs Celebrates Fifth Anniversary at Finnish Ambassador's Residence

It’s not every day that one gets an opportunity to celebrate a professional milestone at an ambassador’s residence, but Laura Lee Williams, owner of Laura Lee Designs, had the good fortune to do so when she celebrated five years at the helm of her handbag business at the home of Finnish Ambassador Pekka Lintu and his wife Laurel Colless.

“What an honor and gift to have the loveliest evening surrounded by advisors, supporters and dear friends,” says Williams. “The Finnish Ambassador and his wife Laurel Colless are supreme hosts and I couldn’t have asked for a better evening.”

Gift Ideas For Mother's Day

Just as the temperature begins to show signs of heating up, and my flower beds begin to show signs of life beyond winter, I found the most gorgeous collection of silk photo albums that are simply too elegant to forget. And in fact, I was invited to a fabulous black tie event last weekend at my friend, Lynda's home (yes, her home!) and I so wish that I had come across these works of art before I settled on something lovely as a hostess gift-- but not nearly as special.
