Happy Monday everyone! It's time for another work week...but hey - we have the 4th of July to look forward to
This week, we're starting off our week with a blog post about one of our retailers - a stone's throw - the brainchild of Heather Higgens. Heather grew up in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, as the daughter of a successful sportswear retailer, who would hear great compliments about the family store and often times hear customers say "We need something like this in Madison!" So after moving to the big city of Madison, Wisconsin, Heather opened up the doors of a stone's throw in 2004 to the delight of a steady stream of local women who were on the quest for comfortable, quality clothes.
Not only does a stone's throw carry eco-friendly brands like c. marchuska, the boutique also has The Upstairs Closet, which features quality gently-used active lifestyle clothing for men, women and children. The process is pretty simple: bring in your freshly-washed clothing during regular store hours, and the buyers will decide what items to purchase from you and make you an offer. You can receive either 50% off of the selling price in-store credit to The Upstairs Closet or 30% of the selling price paid to you by check. We love that a stone's throw really believes in sustainability, in both product and process!
Through this cute, cozy boutique, Heather reaches the local community by providing services, donations, and fundraising efforts to a myriad of organizations, including Dane County Humane Society, Girls on the Run, Madison Children's Museum, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Waisman Early Childhood Center, and Wisconsin River Alliance.
We are proud to be included in the a stone's throw collection and we are incredibly inspired by Heather! If you call 608-255-1925 to order c. marchuska and mention this blog entry, you'll receive 15% off and get free shipping as well! Happy shopping!
