“We try and bill this as a high-end fashion clothing sale, so the brand isn’t that important. What’s important is that it has to be brand-new or nearly new,” Ronco said. “We want people to think of it more of a huge fashion sample sale, but instead of buying from a fashion house, you’re buying from the middle man.”
Last year, more than 70 people signed up for vendor spots at the event, selling everything from Hugo Boss men’s blazers and lululemon yogawear to Betsey Johnson dresses and Manolo Blahnik high-heels at deep discounts. Vendor applications for this year’s event have already been finalized, but shoppers attending Re-Fashion (admission is $5) can expect to see clothing and shoes that reflect a wide range of styles and sizes.
“Because we want there to be a good cross-section of sizing and age ranges for maturity levels of clothing…the applications are done by size,” Ronco confirmed.
Shoppers can also look forward to free treats and prizes from event sponsors, including cupcakes by Love Your Cake, canapés from Yaletown restaurant Caché Bistro & Lounge, and mini-manicures from Luxe Beauty Lounge. Last year, Re-Fashion saw more than 800 shoppers, so attendees are advised to go early—and bring cash.
“Most people selling designer items will have high price-points because they price everything themselves,” Ronco said. “So even if you are getting a really great deal on a pair of Manolos, it’s still going to be a pair of Manolos.”
Eventually you’ll find someone who may not like wrestling, but will at least appreciate your passion, enthusiasm, and commitment. These feelings generally translate well into other characteristics that are the foundations for a successful relationship, such as trust, compassion, understanding, and empathy.
The third rule is something I think needs to be said because it can immediately train wreck any conversation based solely on the fact that you might sound like a crazy person.
Rule number three? Don’t try to initially sell the whole “wrestling is art” thing right off the bat…
Only a select group of individuals understand that concept as it is. It’s only designed for those who have seen the magic in action and know what to watch and listen for. It’s like telling someone who just barely passed algebra how easy it is to find the co-sign of tangent squared. I had to painfully watch as my friend tried to explain to a girl how exactly wrestling was like a masterpiece painting. It ended with her confused and uninterested, with him desperately trying to gain her attention back as well as spouting off a few last minute catchphrases to up his point total before she walked away.
What about those stereotypical and bizarre answers we received that originally drove us to create the game? The following is the list of reasons why females don’t like wrestling according to females.
1. Men wrestling each other in tights.
2. Steroid use.
3. It’s to0 fake and campy.
4. They sell sex.
5. Just don’t understand why men like it.
With a list like this it’s easy to see why it’s so hard to come clean about how much joy you get from watching grown men in tights wrestle, use steroids, and fake fight each other.
