By Jay-t: Father’s Day

The 17th is Father’s day, a time to celebrate the amazing men in our lives that have given us direction, morals and life.

I know that my father was a huge influence on my interest in cooking. He also taught me how to be a gentleman and treat people properly. For that I wanna say that I love him and here are some of the gifts for him that I have been eyeing.

*Click on the pictures to get a better look at the goods!*

Tanner goods belt
This skinny width belt just screams class and a timeless look. Goes well with jeans, chinos, or a nice pair of shorts.

logitec universal harmony remote

A bit of a weird gift but most men I know have a man cave, and it is amazing to tote around only one controller for all of the electronics stacked in the cave.

steak knifes

If ever one could say that knifes are sexy, this would be the time! These things are so amazing. Clean, precise and just masculine enough to dice up those fantastic steaks.

leather strapped 6 pack holders

Beer is good. Leather is manly. Let your dad be good and manly with this awesome 6 pack carrier. It’s also green!

rogue spirits

Get a bottle to share, visit one of Rogue’s breweries, or head to a bar for a drink of something nice with your pops.

Cheers and happy Father’s day

Revolve Your Closet

Glancing Girl here …

Up to 12 billion pounds of textile waste ends up in landfills every year – that’s more than 5% of the total waste composing our nation’s landfills.

Discarded clothing accounts for most of that waste.

Resale shops like Second Glance & The Annex are part of an eco-fashion initiative focused on reducing the amount of used clothing that ends up entering the solid waste stream – and contributing to the destruction of our planet.

We believe there’s a better way to live.

We believe in revolving closets, re-visiting trends, and that when a garment really must be discarded – choosing a responsible way to part with it.

You can make a tangible contribution to the eco-fashion effort by revolving your gently-worn garments with Second Glance & The Annex.

Those pieces that have been loved too much to revolve – donate them to a charitable organization that recycles textiles, rather than contributing to textile waste.

We donate to the ARC of Benton County and Vina Moses – both run thrift shops that operate in responsible and sustainable manners and support our local community.

We’re taking fall consignments right now – 7 days a week: 10-6 Monday through Saturday {11-7 at the Annex} and 12-5 on Sunday. It takes mere minutes to revolve a group from your closet, and you’ll feel good about engaging sustainable living in all aspects of your life.

Revolve Your Closet, Reset Your Style

Glancing Girl here …

The change of seasons is a natural time to get into your closet, take stock of what’s there, revolve what no longer works and reset your look.

And {I know this seems crazy, considering the summer we’ve had} we’re getting ready to begin accepting Fall consignments at the shops.

Get those last summer items out of your closet and into the shop within the next couple of weeks, because beginning August 1, we’ll be re-setting the shops for Fall.

Of course you know that revolving your wardrobe by participating in resale is a less expensive and far more socially & environmentally responsible way to engage the world of fashion.

Both of our locations are open 7 days a week, and take consignments without an appointment.

Hope to see you {and your closet} soon!
