You'll want to take ANOTHER LOOK


And..Another one of my favorites!  My friend, Lynn Savage, introduced me to this store in the 90's and I've been a fan ever since.  Located in Cable Shores Plaza on Fulton Rd NW in Lake Cable, it's an upscale boutique with a trendy twist.
(Megathrift Tours shoppers / 2010)
The owner, Ohio native Susan Knisley, has been at four locations since opening in 1991.  The business began with 1,000 square feet and has more than tripled to 3,300 square feet.  She offers clothing, shoes, purses, new jewelry, scarves, formals, children's clothing and men's clothing.
Consignments are taken for all items mentioned with the exception of jewelry.  Consignors are offered 40% of the sale price of these items.
If you haven't been there, you'll want to write this down:

Sue worked in Corporate America for 15 years and always wanted to own her own business.  In February 1991, her dream became reality.  Enter...ANOTHER LOOK.  She has built this business to the success it is today and has turned it into an upscale boutique that she can surely be proud of!  She describes her life outside of work as being very peaceful and happy.  Her time off is spent enjoying Bible Study, Yoga, Biking, Family, Exercise and Church.

Shellie, the store manager, is helpful and kind and Sue considers her to be very instrumental in the success of the business.  Rachel is the "Organizational Queen" and Michelle Fox from the French Market decorates the store.

Modern technology is not an issue for these gals as they have streamlined the manual system to be very efficient.  (Not a bad gig, considering they stock over 1,200 items per week on their racks.  I am so conditioned to working with computers, I can't imagine doing it by hand!  Amazingly enough, checkout is a breeze and as quick as those using computerized systems!)

Susan is constantly pondering thoughts on innovative ways to better serve her customers.

Her goals for the coming year include but are not limited to:

-Hiring a fashion stylist who will help women put together a new wardrobe that will fit both their body and life styles.

-Offer the service of a stylist to visit your home, clean out and organize your closet.

-Offer a wider selection of accessories to compliment your wardrobe such as jewelry, scarves, etc.

-Offer style seminars on Saturdays offering assistance in using accessories and creative ideas to make your wardrobe trend chic.

Sounds wonderful, Susan, keep us posted!

My favorite fabulous find here:


On a personal note, I TOTALLY APPRECIATE THIS STORE.  In 2002 I travelled to China with my sister, Erin, to pick up her newly adopted daughter, Sage.

Keeping the extreme temperatures in mind, I opted for the thinnest material I could find and set off to find my China wardrobe.  As luck would have it, Another Look was having a killer sale and my entire wardrobe for the trip was purchased there at a fraction of retail pricing!  The extreme heat was as expected, however, my newly purchased attire was much more accomodating for these temperatures.

Put them on your list of "things to do", you won't be disappointed.
