My name is Christa and I'm the owner of Polka Dot Pony. Like many of you I'm a wife and mother and I never seem to have enough hours in the day! I grew up in Monroe and have enjoyed living in Dundee for three years now. One thing I love about both cities are the great downtown areas.
I love to shop and get a good deal at the same time. I've always shopped at garage sales and resale/consignment shops for my daughter. One problem I've found is that going to garage sales can take up your whole Saturday and you're never guaranteed that you will find something. Or you think you got a great deal and then when you get your treasures home you find a missed stain or hidden holes. Going shopping at the mall or retail store isn't much better since you have to travel to Monroe, Ann Arbor or Toledo to find one and then you have to hope you find your children's sizes in cute clothes while searching through the sale racks.
That's why I'm opening Polka Dot Pony. I know your time is valuable and you'd rather spend it with your family than shopping (ok, most of the time this is true)! I want to offer good quality clothes that are anywhere from 60% to 90% off of retail prices and not the type of clothes you will find at garage sales. I also want to make it fun for you to shop at Polka Dot Pony and give you a chance to visit downtown. Come see us on Wednesday night or Saturday morning and you can also check out the Farmers Market. You can go see what new candles Swan Creek has or sign up for one of the great classes at River Raisin Beads.
Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. I appreciate your feedback! We look forward to seeing you soon.
