Hello, My Friends!~~
It is a rainy dark Monday here which makes me stay inside. I am busy sorting through all of the vintage goodies I found this weekend (post detailing the flea market weekend travels to come!), some destined for Dime Store Chic. While doing that I am watching yet another installment of the wonderful PBS Series: Mr. Selfridge starring the delicious Jeremy Piven.
Mr. Selfridge was the American founder of London's famous Selfridge's department stores. He was a larger than life person who wanted to give his customers the best possible (and often most extravagant) shopping experience. I am amazed at what I am learning about turn-of-the-century retail while watching this show. I had no idea that there were no women's ready-to-wear clothes sold until Mr. Selfridge made it so, or that he determied that perfumes and cosmetics should come from the back corner of the pharmacy department and elegantly displayed on the counters as women (and men) enter the store. Fabulous!
In the jolly spirit of the wonderful Mr. Selfridge, I am having yet another HALF OFF sale in Dime Store Chic! Simply enter (in all capital letters) the code: MRSELF at check out to get your discount. You must use the code to get your discount as I cannot do it for you. This sale runs until early morning (EST) Wednesday, May 1st. I am only revelaing the coupon Code to YOU, my blog readers. On May 1st I will be bringing you LOTS of new goodies from my recent treasure hunts!~~As ever, thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Shopping!~~XXOO, Beth
