Last Thursday the Network of Entrepreneurial Women held its first Wine Women and Wellness event. Our destination of choice was the Swap Shop Resale Boutique in Glen Ellyn.
The Swap Shop is a woman-owned consignment store focused on brand name fashion pieces that they wish to make available to women at more affordable prices.
We held our introductions after which instant connections were made, sipped a little bit of wine, and then started browsing.
The shop is arranged by size, and also has a section of new arrivals and popular brands. I was drawn to the â€œLove from Amsterdamâ€ rack, which happened to be the place to get the summer dress I was looking for (stay tuned for that on Friday).
Several ladies purchased jewelry.
We caressed some purses and admired lots of shoes.
The Swap Shop has hundreds of consigners, who naturally also become regular customers. Because of its success, aÂ second storeÂ has recently opened in Hinsdale.
After the shopping and meeting the cofounders returned to Flour + Wine, to re-indulge in the fabulous Calzone with Nutella and berries.
We also had the Italian donuts and delicious lime and strawberry gelato.
We also got a sneak peek at www.NetworkHoncho.com, which is in its beta phase.
It was a fantastic evening which we will repeat soon in a different Chicagoland suburb.
NEW – The Network of Entrepreneurial Women is a group of Chicagoland business women who are upgrading business networking with fun and creative events that inspire attendees to work together, refer each other and most of all cheer each other on as the membership succeeds. Events rotate around various suburbs on a semimonthly basis.
