CLEARANCE IS AN ONGOING PROCESS

OVER 280 CLEARANCE TAGS ON THE FLOOR AS OF TODAY

We are used to seeing sales at the end of a season or for holidays, but resale is a bit of a different animal. The goal is always to turn over stock. So, in the case of resale, clearance is indeed an ongoing process.

Our discounted tags are indicated by the word “***LOYALTY***” right on the tag. Just check the dates on the tag to see how much your item is today.

If you really like something, it’s best not to wait. Not only might someone else grab it up; I may decide to give it another chance at full price, donate it, or sell it online. In other words, it may not be there, or be at a reduced price when you get back.

WHY DO WE CALL IT “LOYALTY” PRICING?

Probably the most valuable perk of our membership rewards, is loyalty pricing. These tags offer you 60% – 90% of our original prices. Our loyalty club members qualify for this special pricing. Non-loyalty club members will still enjoy a 50% discount off the original price, but why not enjoy the benefits of membership?  They are free!

So, how do you become a Loyalty Club Member? It’s easy.

All it requires is your name, address, email and your birth month and date. No fees.

What is Loyalty pricing?

Probably the most valuable perk of our membership rewards, is loyalty pricing. You will find that some of the tags in the store have the word “LOYALTY” printed right on them. These are clearance items. In the past, I’ve donated such items, but I’ve decided it’s time that those that are closest to reFresh should benefit. As you can see, these tags offer you 60% – 90% of our original prices.

How to Return those Amazon Gifts

Amazon Gifts Return

We will be creeping out of bed far to early on what for many is a day off — the day after Christmas, or Boxing Day. Not that there is any relationship between Boxing Day and running to the mall and returning the unwanteds . . . I mean those lovely presents that missed the mark by a tad. I digress — as usual. But if you just have to know more about Boxing Day, you can check here.

Ahh yes. Back to those presents. Hopping into the car, grabbing a bite at the neighborhood breakfast haven and toddling off to the mall is easy, if not a bit frenetic.

Home for the Holidays? Now What?

Home for the Holidays

We’ve shopped and hustled and bustled until our bustle is dragging. And now the family is arriving. What to do? We love our families and we love to have them. Perry Como wrote  home all about it. “Oh there’s no place like home for the holidays. . . ” You’re singing now, right? Here are a few ideas for keeping everyone busy and happy.


Vulture shares a list of board games you may want to check out.  New Bedford, which appears to be the whaling community version of Settlers of Catan, caught my eye.  You gather to build a town, but the real treat is that you are going to go whaling!


CBS News offers a list of binge-worthy television to catch up on, and they are not just CBS offerings. Check it out. I am the consummate binge watcher. I’d much rather watch a whole season at once than to have it strung out over weeks and weeks. I have the attention span of a flea though.


Vogue gives excellent ideas on how to host those holiday parties while maintaining your sanity.


Last, and most certainly not least, share this great place we call home with them. For me, that is the Seattle area. Look for posts on things to do in your area. You may find some places that you’ve not seen as well.

This link is for the folks in my neck of the woods — Seattle. The Visit Seattle website lists their top 25 attractions.


Actually, home for the holidays is really quite a wonderful thing.

Did You Know?

Max Raab was born into the clothing business in the 20s, apprenticing at his father’s side, but later left the business expressing concerns over the quality and lack of style of the garments. He then moved on to making tailored shirts for women, after observing college co-eds opting for men’s shirts on campus. Throughout the 60s he became synonymous with the preppie style with his venture, The Villager clothing company.
The film industry caught his eye and he purchased the rights to A Clockwork Orange and was later named as Executive Producer by Stanley Kubrick. He went on to produce several other notable films before returning to the fashion industry and establishing J. G. Hook in 1974. He grew it into a $100 million company and later sold it.
Fashion moguls can follow many interesting paths on their journey. Who knew a little red coat could have such an exciting history?
