We’re all too familiar with the at-home sales party clichÃ©: A bland, 50’s-style affair where polite chit-chat is punctuated by the periodic “burp” of self-sealing food storage containers. Yawn.
Party or not, there’s just nothing sexy about last night’s leftovers.
But a body-skimming cocktail dress, on the other hand, in black and pink leopard print with flirty cap sleeves? Thatâ€™s another story altogether. Where can we RSVP?
Women across the Metroplex are getting excited about Etcetera, an innovative direct sales concept that puts high quality fashion at their fingertips, minus the hassle of crowded, chaotic malls.
Debbie Teague, a spirited former stay-at-home mom, has been selling Etcetera for seven years. Every couple of months, she transforms the dining room of her picture-perfect Frisco home into an upscale boutique, complete with display racks and a full-length mirror. Hardwood floors and a baby grand piano make for a warm, inviting atmosphere for her fashionable clients.
â€œEtcetera is really known for detail,â€ Teague explains, skimming her hand across the jeweled accents of a gauzy asymmetrical blouse from the lineâ€™s Holiday 2009 collection. Designer touches are what keep her 90-plus customers coming back time and time again. That, and the convenience of shopping by appointment with a consultant who knows your style, size and preferences.
