Q+A with Bonnie Kallenberg

Bonnie Kallenberg, owner of Finders Keepers Consignment Stores, gets asked a lot of questions. She was recently asked: "What's the most unusual thing anyone has ever purchased in one of your stores?" Here's her answer:

Tyler Perry, a movie producer, lives and films movies and television shows all around Atlanta so we have his set designers in the stores often. The most memorable purchase of theirs was a large amount of dressy and designer clothing, shoes and accessories to use in the closet scene of “Diary of a Mad Black Woman”. The YouTube link is where you can see the actors trash a closet full of clothing from Finders Keepers about 2 minutes and 30 seconds into the clip!

Look of the Week: Delicate + Denim

Opposites attract, and that's definitely true of textures. Adding the sturdy structure of the denim jacket to the ruffled blouse and silky skirt in the look below adds more strength to the jacket and makes the ruffled front stand out more than it would all by its lonesome. Add a great pair of brown leather boots to balance the look from head to toe.

Skirt - retro Talbots sz 6 $21.00
Blouse - Talbots sz 10p $15.00
Jacket - Banana Republic sz XS $16.00
Belt - Fossil $10.00
