Used prom dresses selling at local businesses, events

March 25, 2009

Tutu Cowgirl in Tonganoxie, which sells a variety of women’s clothing and accessories, is another option for youths interested in purchasing used prom dresses.

The store, at 414 E. Fourth St. in Tonganoxie, sells the dresses on a consignment basis and currently has about 20 dresses in stock. Linda Carver, whose daughter, Cynthia Starcher, owns the business, said they still were accepting dresses to sell.

She said a few dresses have sold so far.

“We have really just now started the sale,” Carver said. “We’ve sold, I think, three this year. I think it’s getting close enough to prom the girls are starting to look.”
