[shop] Cute Jewelry and Accessory Stores

Although I own a small amount of jewelry, I have a great appreciation for the most unique of accessories. Never mind the latest trends — accessories should express who you are. I have found a handful of boutiques throughout the Wichita area that can help with this self-expression. Each of these places impressed me with its details.

[shop] Garage Sale-ing for Dummies

I love garage sales. I love estate sales. I love rummaging through other people’s junk, hoping to find something to take home and love forever… Or at least until I sell it at my own garage sale.
