12/21 Christmas wishes: New Year's dresses

@BR Ednote:Editor’s Note: Each Christmas season, Bradenton Herald staff select their favorite gift selections from local businesses and nonprofits.

Gift suggestion: Dresses, purses, shoes and jewelry for New Years Eve at Restyled Rags Boutique.

Description: One of the places locally where budget consciousness meets party attitude is this shop in Jennings Arcade at 417 12th St. W. Dozens of pre-owned dresses for New Years are available that cost from $12 to $25 and come in sizes from small to extra large. There also is a wide selection of shoes, costume jewelry and purses too.

Cost: Dresses run from $12 to $25 and costume jewelry starts at $2.

Why I like it: My wife can find a dress at a price her husband loves and the proceeds go to The Women’s Resource Center, which helps battered and abused women. There also is a party at the boutique called “Girls Night Out” 5-7 p.m. Jan. 7.

When you can buy it: Restyled Rags is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 am. to 1 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call (941) 750-0032 or (941) 747-6797.
