That stage will be put to good use tonight from 6 to 9 p.m., when Details hosts a benefit concert and silent auction, with hors doeuvre and wine, for the Rocky Mountain Multiple Sclerosis Center and CASE for MS (Peggy Cooper suffers from MS). Popular Colorado artists Melissa Ivey, Linda Storey and Jessica Storey will perform; admission is a $10 donation at the door. And if youre lucky, Bart Cooper will offer a tour of the basement, where such relics as old sheet music, Cracker Jack boxes and candy wrappers were found during the restoration process. (If not, the space will be included in the last of this years Haunts of Littleton haunted tours on October 25; go to www.bestchamber.com/events/haunts.html for information.) Hes like a little kid in a candy shop, Peggy says of her husband and his interest in the buildings past, dotted as it is with tales of underground passages and other spooky boy stuff. Upstairs is another story. Decked out in the ubiquitous black and pink, its a spacious change from the old shop, further transformed by Barts displays fashioned from salvaged doors and ladders. In addition to the bath and body lines the stores always been known for -- including such favorites as Colorado-based Lollia, Archipelago and others -- Details now has room for expanded clothing lines from 3 Dot, Free People, Charlotte Tarantola, Ed Hardy, LeLe and others, along with designer jeans galore and cheeky, off-the-wall accessories from Lady Luck, Red Camper, Harveys and Annette's Touch of Class. Peggy also chooses her merchandise with an eye for things made in the U.S.A. (and especially Colorado), an aspect thats kept Details hopping, even during the economic slump. People are shopping wiser, she says. Theyre really looking at what theyre purchasing, but theyre still buying. And with Christmas around the corner, shes hoping youll come in and make your own wise choices.
Not at all difficult, when you pay attention to the details.
