New Year, Big News!

New Year, Big News!

Happy New Year Everyone!

There have been so many questions about the new space, thank you all for your support and enthusiasm! It’s getting me really excited. 

This post will be a bit wordy, apologies in advance… Here are some commonly asked questions I thought the rest of you might like to know the answers to!

WHEN ARE YOU OPENING!?

We are moving into our new space March 1. It will take a few weeks to get set up, so I’m looking at the middle of March sometime. I don’t want to promise anything yet, but will be sure to tell you asap! 

WHERE WILL YOU BE MOVING TO?!

We are staying in Colonie and are moving right down the road to a beautiful plaza our Landlord owns on the corner of Rt 155 & Vly Rd. It’s much nicer then the previous store, and in much better condition. 

WHAT DAYS & HOURS WILL YOU BE OPEN?

As of now I’m looking at a potential schedule of Wednesday through Saturday, (closed during any production jobs I’ll be hired for) and available Monday & Tuesday by appointment. Or something like that. Thank you for all your feedback on the previous email! 

WHAT WILL YOU BE ACCEPTING ON CONSIGNMENT?!

For our first round of consignments we will be accepting designer & luxury brand purses, wallets and accessories.

Consignment terms will be drawn up by our attorney and a copy of our agreement will be available by request or at the time of consignment. Will update you all when we will be taking appointments and how it will work. 

🚚 Home & On Location pickup will be available for special situations like estate clean outs, moving & staging, quarterly wardrobe clean outs, film set sales,  etc. 

WHAT WILL YOU BE SELLING?!

FASHION…

We will be selling designer bags, wallets, accessories, jewelry, clothing, and graphic tees. We will also have a small-ish section of formal wear and shoes. 

BEAUTY…

This section of the boutique will house various cosmetics, skincare, hair care, beauty brushes & tools! Including our own brand; BACKSTAGE STYLIST COSMETICS!

HOME… 

There will be locally made candles, fun decor & tchotchkes, tumblers, mugs and more throughout the shop. I can’t wait to design the displays, I’ve missed doing that the most!

Seasonally we will also be offering prom gowns and special event wear, And reassess as needed. Nothing is set in stone.

WHAT SERVICES WILL YOU OFFER?!

For those of you that don’t already know much about me, my professional background is makeup, hair and wardrobe styling for TV, Film and Stage. I’ve worked with famous celebrities on movies, commercials, tv shows, government productions, and more! I even have an IMDB page! 

What I’m opening will be a boutique & styling studio! So that being said my mission is to help my customers look and feel their best for important photo & video ops, special events, weddings, proms, work functions, or just because!
