Being over we’re-not-tellin’-how-old, getting carded is something we relish almost as much as Audrina Patridge pretends to be enjoying that ridiculous Carl’s Jr. burger she’s mowwing in her latest (only?) commercial (seriously, you know the girl is not actually eating those things).
Another kind of getting carded we’ve been thrilled with lately? Our new Fashion Slave Local Shoppers Club card, pictured above in all its glory.
The card is the latest effort from Fashion Slave, whose founder and overall diva Kim C. ushers out-of-towners on neighborhood and underground tours of San Francisco’s best independent boutiques and local designers’ studios. After spending two years building a business that caters to San Francisco visitors, she’s got something up her sleeve for us local gals.
Purchase a card ($20 for the rest of ’09, but we hear the price will increase next year), and you’ll receive 10 percent off at any participating merchant, as well as discounts on Fashion Slave tours and exclusive deals at participating retailers. While the list of participating stores isn’t public yet, retailers offering the discount have the club’s logo in their windows and include local shops Candystore Collective, Density, Lemon Twist, Studio 3579 and Vintage a la Mode. We’re told restaurants and other types of local businesses will be coming on board next.
We think this makes a great gift option for San Francisco folks who love to shop local. To purchase, contact Fashion Slave or buy via the site’s purchase page (just enter $20 and Shoppers Club Card in the PayPal form).
