My awesome exchange

As the owner I get the perk of making an exchange whenever I want.  However, as a business owner my time is pretty limited.  I make time about every 3-6 months and I love to share the awesomeness that I find.

Awesome Fashion in a Tiny Bag

I challenged myself to limit my packing for a 5 day trip to a small backpack.  Considering I'm headed to New Orleans where the weather is sweltering and the lifestyle is pretty chill I had the upper hand at achieving this.  I did with lightweight fabrics and a lot of flowy styles and fabrics.

I'm heading down to party it up with my sister and her hubby who have lived in The Crescent City since 2005 right after Katrina hit.  They headed down for relief efforts and never left.

I head down every year, sometimes twice a year, to visit and take in all the city has to offer (usually booze, food, and a ton of fun).  This time is no exception since I'll be there to celebrate my favorite brother-in-law's 40th birthday.  I'll take lots of pics and post them afterwards.  Until then enjoy this little packing adventure:

Accessories at Upshift

We love accessories just as much as the next gal.  That's why I'm here to tell you that when you swap you can take anything from the boutique as part of your swap, even accessories!  This is the number 1 question we get asked during a visit and yes, you can take them even if you didn't bring accessories as part of your swap.

On that note, it's a good reminder to be sure to dig through your accessories at home to get rid of anything you don't use anymore; shoes, handbags, jewelry, watches, sunglasses, and scarves to name a few.

Check out this short video to see what items we've gotten in and good examples of items we accept!

The Great Caper

We were robbed yesterday.  Yep, our little gem of a shop was robbed on Thursday, July 23rd.  It was a non-violent crime that involved a man stopping in and taking all our cash. Thankfully my staff is safe and the store is secure (to quote my staffer, "Even the thieves are nice in Madison").  We installed cameras last week and the Madison Police Department was absolutely amazing at responding to the call.  They did an unbelievably thorough job at getting all the details and are sure they'll get to the bottom of this and other similar crimes.

We are still open and didn't let it break our stride.  Now is when we need business more than ever to help off set the loss.  Stop in and support us and help get us back to where we were before yesterday.

We thought it necessary to share this with our customers as word travels fast in Madison.  Customers have already contacted us because they saw a significant presence of police outside our shop all day.

Thank you for all the support and hope to see you this weekend.
