Tell us about your business, including the products or services that you offer and what makes you unique:

We are a high-end liquidation outlet, specializing in new with tag men’s and women’s clothing. We source overstock and unbroken pallets from places such as J Crew, Madewell, Nordstrom, Saks, and Revolve. Our goal is to bring name brands people want to the area as we do not have access to any of these retailers; and we are doing it at a very affordable price point- up to 70% off retail MSRP. 

Why did you choose Franklin County for your business?

We are Franklin County natives! We were both born right here, and though Alexandra did move to Richmond for 12 years, she came back home in 2022 and we started planning how to get a clothing retailer into the county. 

What small businesses do you enjoy visiting in Franklin County?

We love small business in general! Being small business owners, we prefer to shop small. Right now we absolutely love supporting KK Creations for all-natural skin and body care. We also love our fair share of local restaurants with the Rocky Mount Burger CompanyIppy’s, and Frank’s Pizza topping the list. And we could not have made our shop as pretty as we did without the help of Unique Memories & Gifts. Their team did nearly all of our wooden decor in the shop and everything came out so gorgeous. They are so talented, and we love supporting them!

Give us all the details on how to connect with your business. (contact info, social media, etc.) What are your hours of operation?

Right now the best way to connect with us is on our Facebook and to come into our shop!

We are open Tuesday-Thursday 12-7, Friday 12-6, and Saturday 11-3. We will have a website and offer local pickup in the new year, so stay tuned!
