Save money and reuse by purchasing a prom dress from a resale shop or thrift store.
Looking for a way to go green (and not the green that involves cash) and get ready for prom? The answer is pretty simple. A big part of the Go Green movement is reusing items so they don’t go to waste. And what better to reuse than a prom dress? “Most of these dresses are only worn once for just a couple of hours,” said co-owner of Savvy Fashions and More Dawn Aagesen. “We want to be able to recycle some of these prom dresses and accessories.” Aagesen says dresses at the resale shop go as low as $40 and up to about $250 depending on the original price as well as make and condition. “Girls are easily dropping a thousand dollars now between the dress and the shoes and hair and make up,” said Nancy Tyl, co-owner. “Our options are much more …

Two business owners explain how their small business competes with the big-box stores.
The craziness of Black Friday is behind and now Small Business Saturday has its turn this weekend, minus some of the craziness.

Consignment shop offers a wide selection.
Savvy Fashions and More in Mason Square is a consignment boutique, but to understand all that this store offers you need to walk through its doors and let the owners take you on a tour. The tour will likely include: diamonds next to $1.25 earrings, Gucci shoes, Coach purses, an array of vintage clothing, racks of baby clothes and items from local artisans. Owners Dawn Aagesen and Nancy Tyl didn’t want their shop to feel like a resale store. They designed it to resemble a French boutique, wanting to create a nice place to browse while offering affordable items. Tyl said customers have walked into Savvy Fashions and asked, “Am I in the right store? Is this a resale shop? It doesn’t look like it.” Last September, after an experience with a “…
