New shop manager for Second Edition
By Dawn Anderson

Nancy Paysinger has joined the Cedar Mill Community Library Association as the new Second Edition Resale Shop manager. She brings with her over 25 years of retail management in the floral, sporting goods and resale industry. Managing Second Edition enables Nancy to realize her dream of working for a non-profit with an emphasis on recycling. She is having a great time meeting and working with the many shop volunteers who play a vital role by accepting, sorting, appraising, and selling the shop’s donated merchandise.

The Second Edition Resale shop is an upscale secondhand shop that features men’s, women’s and children’s clothing as well as household items.  The shop is an ongoing fundraiser for the Cedar Mill Community Library. The thriving resale shop, located at the east end of the library, fills two needs. Goods are recycled through the community at reasonable prices, and the shop profits benefit the library. 

US Bank Branch Manager Rachell Regottie is excited to host the photo exhibit that Sandy Sahagian created to honor some of the local businesspeople who have contributed to the success of the Cedar Mill Business Association.

The UPS Store Sponsors Toys for Tots Literacy Program

The Peterkort Towne Square UPS Store?, in conjunction with The UPS Store locations across the country, has teamed up with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to announce its first year-round initiative, the Toys for Tots Literacy Program. This new initiative will offer our nation’s most economically disadvantaged children the ability to compete academically and to succeed in life by providing them direct access to books and educational resources that will enhance their ability to read and to communicate effectively.

Throughout March, The UPS Store will be selling $1 donation cards, and for every dollar donated, a book will be placed into the hands of a deserving child in the area courtesy of Scholastic, Inc. The store will continue additional fund-raising activities throughout the year. “According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 12.8 million children live in poverty. And there is a need in or near every community,” said The UPS Store franchisee Tim Kimble. “The literacy program is the perfect way to help provide these children with the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty.”

Sassy Frocks Trunk Shows,
A Shopping Solution for Busy Women

Though it’s still chilly outside, inside Elisa Bennett’s Cedar Mill home it’s spring. Elisa has transformed her elegant living and dining room into a cozy clothing boutique showcasing over 250 designer pieces that are surprisingly modern and feminine with gorgeous, understated detail.

Four times a year for five days, the Etcetera collection features pieces that can usually go from “the carpool line to a cocktail party.” The catch phrases “wardrobe building” and “investment dressing” are often used because, while the clothing is not inexpensive, the pieces are classic coordinates that combine into multiple looks and are timeless enough to last a lifetime.

Elisa and her business partner Catherine Camp started Sassy Frocks a year ago and the list of names of women to invite has more than doubled since their first show last spring.  Each client shops during a scheduled time slot and receives 100 percent of Elisa’s or Catherine’s attention. Clients’ purchases are photographed and a file is created so as the seasons go by previous purchases can be enhanced with newer pieces from the collection to create multiple outfits from just a few key items.

If you’d like more information on their next trunk show please visit their website, www.sassyfrocks.com, or call 503-737-9054. They are currently scheduling appointments for Wednesday, March 12 through Thursday, March 20.
