Good Afternoon My Frisky Friends! Laurie here. Admit it, this chilly weather gets you in the mood....for shopping :) :)! You have got to get down to Sassy Seconds! First of all, the City cut down the huge oaktree out front that was unfortunately dying and dropping large branches, leaving just the stump. It certainly opens things up out front and we are enjoying perching our sandwich board on it! Also, we have some amazing new and consigned jewelry, scarves, etc. that will make perfect holiday gifts. Our friend, local artist Bill Chelseth, has a wonderful showcase of his glass jewelry here at Sassy and I have pictured some of it below. The earrings are amazing and he has pendants, barrettes and rings that are just fabulous. Oh, and we have some truly tacky vintage Xmas sweaters that you have to see to believe! Woo hoo! So, we hope to see you soon. We're open today and Saturday for your shopping pleasure! Have a great weekend. Cheers!

Happy Thanksgiving Eve my Frenzied Friends! Laurie here! Yep the store is open on this beautiful Wednesday and I've already had a great day! Thanks shoppers :). There are still plenty of Sassy items for you so come see me after you clean out Publix. Also quit stressing over the fact that 40 relatives you barely know will be at your door tomorrow bright and early! The store will be closed on Thanksgiving day so we can all overeat, and officially we are closed Friday, but..., since I am staying in town for Thanksgiving, if any of you want to bring your Thanksgiving company to the shop on Friday, just call the shop today and let me know and I'll open it just for you :); 352-930-7988. I live about 3 blocks away from the store so can be there in a jiffy. The store will be open as usual on Saturday from 10 - 6:00 and we will be celebrating Small Business Saturday! Please take a break from Mall and Superstore shopping to "shop local" and support the many small businesses of Mt. Dora! I know this small business would certainly appreciate it! Until then, hold those you love and for whom you are thankful extra close, and let them know what they mean to you, then do the same thing tomorrow...and the next day...and the next. Cheers! Laurie

Hi Dee Ho My Mighty Mt. Dorians and Beyond! Laurie here. I just stepped outside of the shop and durned if it felt a bit cool...well not really cool, but perhaps approaching cool...oh heck it still feels like summer :(. Nonetheless, I wanted to post pictures of the very cool handbag we just got in; a leather hand painted Anuschka! I was unfamiliar with this brand until just a few months ago when we got our first Anuschka handbag that literally lasted about 2 minutes before it sold! This one is in great shape and looking for a forever home :). Give me a call here at Sassy Seconds if you are interested in it : 352-530-7988. We also have Coach, Michael Kors, Brighton (bags, jewelry and shoes) and more so check us out! On another note, we will begin next week closing the store at 5:30 rather than 6:00. I don't know about you, but by 6:00 it's dark out and I'm ready for a glass of wine and/or my PJs! That said, if you ever need me to stay open for you to scoot over for a last minute gift or outfit, just call me at the shop and I'll keep the doors open. I only live a few blocks away so it's no big deal :). So, there you have it! Look forward to seeing you soon. Cheers!

Greetings my Scary Spooky Halloween Friends! You're running out of time to find a costume, in fact you just thought of it again when you read this post didn't you??? You can stand hours staring at costumes at the Party Stores or you can call me here at Sassy Seconds, 352-530-7988 and I'll hold one of the custumes pictured until you get here to pick it up! You can choose from our Sexy Mrs. Claus outfit (you could put a sign on your back in true Janet Jackson, (etc....) style that says "Mrs. Claus if you're Nasty!"), or you could be a well dressed Witch in the other lovely outfit pictured that comes with a free witch hat (wart not included)! In addition, I've been putting fall clothing and accessories out all week so come see me today or Owner, Robin and her Mom, Connie tomorrow and Saturday. I promise, a visit to this store will be the best time you've ever had shopping! See you soon. Cheers!

Greetings my Fantastic Friday Friends! Laurie here. What a glorious weekend for Craft Fair shopping in Mt. Dora and of course when you get your fill of that, come on up to Sassy Seconds, 930 Donnelly Street, and enjoy a glass of wine or a bottle of water while you continue your shopping tradition in sassy style! We have some great new arrivals, including the cool sunflower long cardigan pictured below. Also pictured are Melissa, Marin, Theresa and Colin, four generations righ...t here in Sassy Seconds! Colin had his school picture taken today but managed to ditch the white dress shirt for his t-shirt while still rocking his cool bow tie!! We had big fun and they managed to fill up 3 shopping bags before they left smile emoticon:). Before I forget, we will have two $5 racks stuffed to the gills for sale tomorrow to make room for more fall items. We started the sale early and Theresa was able to get a Lilly Pulitzer dress for $5 smackers, and there are a few more Lilly's on the rack! Woo hoo! Thanks ladies for shopping Sassy! We'll be open tomorrow morning (22nd) at 10:00 and will stay open until 6:00 as usual, so for heaven's sake come see us! Until then - Cheers!

Greetings. Laurie here. Well, there was a bit of excitement here at Sassy Seconds yesterday, but not the good kind :(. Owner Robin, who works Fridays and Saturdays at the store, had her wallet stolen out of her purse, apparently by someone who came into the store to shop. Her credit cards were used at several establishments before she realized her wallet was missing and shut them down. She is understandably shaken by this turn of events and has contacted the MDPD to let ...them know about the theft. Anyway, the store is open and I am here now until 6:00. Robin is planning to come back to the store and will be open this evening for a few hours in tandem with Randy Young's Wigs & Wishes event across the street. This is a wonderful event to raise money for children with cancer and will be from 6:30 - 9:30. Murray and I are going and hope to see you there! As for Robin...come to Sassy this evening and cheer her up for Pete's Sake! She's had a rough week! Cheers!

Good Morning my Sassy Frassy Friends! Laurie here on this glorious Monday with just the slightest hint of cooler weather to come (please?)! I don't know about you but I've already pulled my boots out of hibernation and plan to wear them soon, cool weather or not! I bought them, I'm wearing them!! :) Anyway, I hope that everyone has recovered from the storm. We are so very thankful that Matthew's wrath spared us here in Mt. Dora, but know that other areas did not fare as well and are sending prayers. On another note, our friend Randy, owner of Randy Young Salon, located just across the street from Sassy Seconds, is hosting his annual Wigs & Wishes benefit to support children with cancer this Saturday night, October 15th from 6:30 - 9:30. There will be entertainment (see flyer below), delicious food provided by local vendors, adult beverages, a silent auction and more; all for just a suggested $25 donation! I'll be attending with my husband to honor my Mother who succumbed to cancer October 15th, over 30 years ago, at the age of 53. It promises to be a nice evening so please consider attending. Randy kindly suggested that we might open up Sassy during the event in case folks want to drift over to check out the store. Owner Robin will be here to welcome you and show you around! Thanks Randy for hosting this terrific event and for always supporting Sassy Seconds! I'll be here all week (I sound like a Vegas lounge act!) so come see me and let's shop! Cheers!

Greetings My Calm Before the Storm Friends! Laurie here. Well, I'm seeing blue skies out the window as I sit at my desk here at Sassy Seconds, but I hear rumblings that may change in the next day or two. I did just run to Publix to pick up a presciption and let me tell you, parking spaces were at a premium! I also decided to pick up some hurricane supplies for Murray and myself; Cape Cod potato chips, cherry Pop Tarts and bananas. We already have bread, peanut butter and... jelly which everyone knows are mandatory during inclement weather! So, that takes care of that, now on to more important news. Owner Robin's Mom, Connie, was in Publix this morning looking fab as always, and a nice lady complimented her outfit. When Patricia (the nice lady) found out she'd gotten it at Sassy, she headed right over with her daughter Taylor to check us out! What a delight they both were! Taylor is a sophmore in high school and she not only found the jacket/pants outfit she was in search of, but also found shoes, shirts, more pants, jewelry to go with each outfit, a handbag and a cocktail dress that she totally rocked! Patricia found some great palazzo pants, shirts, a sweater and some jewelry for herself. Sue and I had a ball helping them find what they needed, and most importantly, we all had some great laughs! Thank you ladies! If the weather cooperates we'll be open as always tomorrow through Saturday so come see me. Until then, go get some Pop Tarts before they run out at Publix :). Cheers!

Greetings Groovy Gals and Guys! Laurie here. We had a bit of excitement here earlier in the week when we looked out the window and saw that a tree limb had dropped and shattered the windshield of the Sassy Mobile that is usually parked in the yard in front of the store! It has been whisked away for repair and should be back next week. The other big news is that @Sassy Seconds now has a bona fide Clearance rack located in the back of the store and everything on it is 50% off! Select shoes are also included! It's time to put out more seasonable items, (and they are so good looking!), so in addition to Clearance, our sundresses and shorts are now 40% off and gosh they need a forever home :). Also needing a home is the throwback tunic in the picture! It's actually a new item but has that 70s feel. Hmmm, the 70s... I'm switching my ipod over to Earth, Wind and Fire right now so hurry up and "get down" and Sassy. See you soon! Cheers!

Greetings My Sassy Sisters! Laurie here. Well it has threatened rain all day but we've gotten nary a drop here at Sassy. Hopefully tomorrow follows suit! Sassy friend Kim Deemer was in to peruse our amazing jewelry selection, and ended up buying almost 20 gifts that she plans to give out over the holdays! Gift bags are a part of every Sassy jewelry purchase to make your gift giving just a bit easier. Two bits of Information: SassySeconds will be closed between 1:00 and 2:30 on Thursday, September 1st. I have an unplanned Dr. appointment that I cannot reschedule :(. We will be closed all day on Monday, September 5th in observance of Labor Day but will open up at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday! Have a great weekend and keep your eye on the weather channel just in case. Cheers!

Gooood Morning Mount Dora and Beyond!!! Laurie here. I say it all the time, but I love the people I meet here at @Sassy Seconds! On Friday afternoon, four beautiful women came in toting a cuter than cute four month old who was bagging serious zzzzzzzs! Come to find out that I had 4 generations right there in front of me: Sue Townsend, Debbie Howell, Rachel Howell and her son Max! They did some serious and speedy (Max woke up...:) shopping before honoring me with a snapshot on their way out. Thanks girls! Also, Ellen and Tegan were back to shop for a cocktail dress for an upcoming wedding. We found a classic midnight blue dress that was a perfect fit and check out the necklace! Mission acccomplished! Thanks to all who shopped Sassy this weekend. It's a new week and I'm here to serve! See you soon. Cheers!

Greetings All! It's been a great day so far at Sassy Seconds visiting with some of my favorite customers. I inevitably learn something including a review of Mt. Dora's newest restaurant (thumbs up), the perks of Planet Fitness, and who won what at the Olympics. It's all good, and they made some great purchases so really, you can't beat that with a stick (as my Father would say!). Also, BIG SALE here at Sassy today and Saturday (20th) with 20% off all sundresses and shorts to make room for some Fall (I know, shouldn't be capitalized...) and Winter items. Of course every Mt. Dorian knows that you can wear sundresses and shorts throughout Winters here :)! So, get crack-a-lackin' and I'll see you here very soon! Stay hydrated. It's still hot out there! Cheers!

Greetings Hot and Humid Friends! Laurie here. Hope your week is winding down in a positive way and that you have some groovy plans for the weekend. I wanted to share a snortworthy story with you about my Sassy friend Ellen, her great niece Teagan (sp?), and friend Karen who came in the store today to escape the heat and do some shopping. Karen had just gotten a pedicure and was afraid to try anything on, including shoes, lest her polish find its way off her toes. Unfortunately, she spied several pair she wanted to try. As luck would have it, Ellen and Karen have the same size foot so Ellen volunteered to try on the shoes Karen liked and model them for her; thus the new term "shoe surrogate" was born! Thank you Ellen, for stepping up to the task and going the extra mile for a friend! I do so love Sassy Seconds and the folks who come in here! Come on in tomorrow to see our latest items and bring a friend... Cheers!
