Delaware! We had a relaxing stay at Main Stay Suites, Dover thanks to Main Stay Suites and Claire’s Accessories. When we arrived at the truck the next morning we were greeted by cheerful volunteers from Claire’s and Icing. The volunteers happily helped us prepare the boutique for shoppers and eagerly jumped in and ran appointments. The Claire’s and Icing volunteers loved interacting with the girls and providing fashion advice. Our shoppers once again received 1 on 1 VIP attention during their appointments. Towards the end of the day, NPR visited the boutique and interviewed Allyson. All in all a pleasant stop in Dover.

What an exciting stop in Philadelphia! The truck and trailer was parked in the Xfinity Live parking lot, in the center of all of the major league Phillies sports’ complexes. Truly an awesome location! Much thanks to Xfinity Live for an amazing location. Once again, Claire’s and Icing sent out volunteers that were more than excited to be helping. The Claire’s and Icing volunteers once again ran appointments and provided knowledgeable fashion insight. We had numerous girls visit the boutique from organizations like, Youth Service Inc. The girls and staff members were very impressed by the variety and quality of clothing and the helpful volunteers. Among the most popular items today, our newly unpacked Steve Madden sandals and Claire’s and Icing accessories. Following the shopping appointments, Xfinity Live provided our shoppers and volunteers with packaged lunches! Towards the end of our day, we had Urban Outfitters executives visit the mobile boutique. Urban Outfitters’ headquarters is in Philadelphia, so we were more than excited that they took the time out of their busy schedules to visit the boutique! The Urban Outfitters executives were thrilled with the mobile boutique, looked forward to continuing their relationship with Threads for Teens and offered more product donations. Truly wonderful! A great stop in Philly!
