A good sale can be found daily -- just check out Groupon. But a great sale is much harder to find -- and twice a year, Frock Shop delivers. Katie Gartner, founder of Frock Shop, even does all the leg work.
"I started Frock Shop because I saw a couple of gaps in the marketplace," she explains. "I saw the need on the boutique/designer side for an outlet where owners could gain exposure while selling overstock and samples. I also saw the need on the consumer side for a place to buy unique designer merchandise at a fraction of the cost."
For its fourth sale, Frock Shop has gathered original samples and overstock items from many local designers, including Mona Lucero, Audrey Marie, FreeRavin, Rae Marie, Janie G, Stephanie O Designs, JM Designs, Vicky Krabil and LamanBlu, as well as several boutiques: Goldyn, Blush, Nest, Anna Be and Token Threads. The pieces will be sold at a fraction of their original cost -- 50 to 80 percent off the pricetag -- at Fashion Denver , 1070 Bannock Street, during the sale that starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 5.
Frock Shop also has a VIP early-shopper's package that would make a great girl's night out on Friday, October 4. For more information, visit the Frock Shop website www.frockshopsales.com.
