There are a lot of great things on the horizon for Enchanted Forrest in 2018. As things are warming up in Asheville, we have ordered a lot of new inventory from our recent trip to Las Vegas Fashion Week. Be on the lookout for new items from some wonderful suppliers including 818 Fashions, Aryeh, Elietian, and more. We also reconnected with an old supplier called Windhorse. Enchanted Forrest carried this brand years ago. After I took over the business, we lost the connection. Last week at Women's Wear in Nevada (WWIN), we reconnected. I first noticed a familiar and unique pattern on some tunics. My husband even said "Hey, didn't you have these tops at the store a long time ago?" The owner of the company remembered working with Enchanted Forrest and sat with us for a half an hour to work out an order. Some orders will arrive for spring and others will available to our customers in time for fall.
This year we are steadily increasing our inventory of new clothing to really highlight our taste and reflect the fashion trends of Asheville and surrounding area. As you could imagine, there were miles of walking to find exactly what suites the store. This was our second buying trip to Las Vegas and each time we return to Asheville inspired! Another convention that we shopped at was OffPrice at the Sand Expo Center. My husband Duncan was a great assistant. During the three days of walking/shopping/walking he carried the booklets, maps and a clipboard while taking notes on vendors that might be worth a second look. The largest fashion event that week was Magic. We had so much on our plate with WWIN and OffPrice, we didn't get a chance to check that out.
Please enjoy the photos and be on the lookout for our spring sale. It is coming up quickly!
