From Winter Parkas to Shorts

When the temperature hits 50 on the bank sign here in Iowa, we do not hesitate for one tiny second to go from this:

to this:

spring shorts

But are you prepared?

Other than mentally ready to  shed the layers and layers of organic cotton, denim, wool and fleece you’ve grown accustom to assembling day after day for what seems like an eternity now, is your closet ready?

This week, we are celebrating everything that is SHORTS.

All of our locations have an abundance of trendy, new to you shorts at prices that will allow you to get all of your favorite brands for far less than you’d pay at the mall.

Got $20?

I think it’s safe to say that you could pick up 2-4 pairs of name-brand shorts for just that and nothing more.

SO …

Go get your spray tan on and head into Stuff!

Happy Weekend

* sigh *

Do you have fireflies where you live?

We are showered with them during the Iowa summers.

It’s quite the vision.

This photo reminded me of my backyard in the summertime and with the spring weather as it is, I feel it’s not so far in the distance.

What are your plans for the unseasonably warm weekend?

We hope it’s something that makes you smile!

Happy Weekend

I am overwhelmed with excitement that this weekend is Daylight Savings Time!

” spring ahead “

Every time I hear “spring ahead” in reference to daylight savings time, it’s like I’m driving along a long and dreary road and suddenly there’s a gigantic, happy road sign alerting me that Spring is just ahead … and this makes me smile.

I. Love. Spring.

Everything starts to turn green and the earth is renewed once again.

Flowers.  Fresh smell of dirt being plowed.   Rain showers.

Warm sunshine.  More daylight at the end of the day.

Did I say how excited I am?

Are you ready?

Check out the next 7 day forecast here in Iowa:

AAAHHHHHhhhh…  I can feel it already!

Hope you all have a Happy Weekend …

and don’t forget…

spring ahead!

Time to Revolve Your Closet

I think I’ve used this picture more than once …

But I love it!

I mean, who hasn’t been here? (Me for one …. ALOT lately!)

Staring blindly at the bursting-at-the-seams-closet but nothing to wear syndrome.

OR nothing in my closet fits!

OR I can’t stand the thought of wearing that shirt-pant-skirt-sweater-dress one more time!

Well… I say don’t bother!

Clean it out all your best, previously loved SPRING clothing and accessories, and bring them into any of our Stuff Etc locations.

We will turn it into cash for you!

And while you’re here, pick up something “new” to you.  Our racks are packed with current styles and fashions to dress you and yours head to toe!

All of our fall and winter items are currently 20% off and all of our spring clothing will hit the floors just after our storewide half price sales this month.

Visit us in Iowa City, Coralville, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo & Davenport!
