B-TOWN BIZ: Two New Businesses Opening In Burien This Week
by Janet Grella
This Saturday (Dec. 5th) during Winterfest, you’ll find two new shops in Olde Burien: Howard and Marge, and You’ve Been Worn â€“ so be sure to stop by and welcome them to the neighborhood!
The first is Howard and Marge, which is moving east from their Seahurst location. Owner Robin Dunkle is pleased to be moving to Olde Burien. She started her cutting edge clothing and gift boutique about 18 months ago. She offers unique, edgy, chic clothing and accessories and gifts for kids and grownups. The store will open Saturday Dec. 5th just in time for Winterfest. Robin will have refreshments and musical entertainment on hand for the opening event. Robin will also be giving out free Howard and Marge t-shirts with every $50 spent in the store that day.
Howard and Marge will be in the ‘corner store’ formerly occupied by Poggi Bonsi.
You’ve Been Worn is a designer store of gently-used merchandise that will be open as well.Â Debra Perkins and Michelle Guest, Windermere Real Estate agents with a passion for designer jeans and purses, have teamed up to open their first location at 902 SW 152nd, next to the Burien Market.
Debra and Michelle have worked together for 15 years, first at CafÃ© Debra in Des Moines, continuing at Windermere and now at You’ve Been Worn. You can expect to see such designers as Rock Revival, Joes, Dooney Burke, Coach, Guess and Juicy Couture, and more. And right now, to get started on consigning your designer clothes they are offering a 50/50 split on the sales.
Debra tells us that she’s open and accepting consignments and ready for sales. You can call 206-940-1007 or 206-248-0050 to arrange an appointment.
