What is unique about Fairytale Brides on a Shoestring Boutique?

-I strongly believed that there needed to be a whole new shopping experience created for the Bride and her family where they could actually walk away happily with the gown of their dreams while donating to charity.

-Everyone you see here is a volunteer. We have no "salespeople". We welcome our guests in a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Our volunteers are here to meet your needs.

What does the boutique carry and where does it come from?

- The boutique is filled with both new and once worn generous donations from salons, designers, and friends. Anyone can donate a wedding gown or dress ( we ask that dress donations be current of 5 years old or less ) and their donation is tax deductible. We also carry mother of the bride, prom dresses, bridal accessories, veils, jewelry, and flower girl dresses which work great for first communion, and so much more.
