Let's Hang Brings the Party to You
Hang with your Friends to Earn Free Clothes
July, 2018 - Issue #166
Wendy Smith has owned a thriving business (BlingityBling sells blinged-out boots, Converse and custom team apparel.) with a storefront on Avenue Stanford for 8 years - but it wasn't until she decided to buy an 18-by-20-foot truck and load it with easy-breezy beach styles that she was able to take it on the road.

Let's Hang Owner Wendy Smith's portable boutique is gorgeously appointed with reclaimed wood and a full-size dressing room inside. Let's Hang's selection is flirty and fun, featuring brands like Love Stitch, Victoria Emerson bracelets and Angie. In addition to beautiful, breezy beach-loving clothing, Let's Hang's So Cal style can be found in the company's collections of home decor, jewelry, handbags, totes, clutches, scarves and more.
"I saw someone with a truck filled with clothing and I fell in love. I realized that I could make it an instant party if I designed it in a way that made it fun and easy to shop," says Smith. "I feel like there's a demand for it here. Before I started my mobile Let's Hang Boutique, I always shopped in Ventura. I could get three or four things for a hundred bucks that was more my style than what I could find in Santa Clarita."

Let's Hang's on-trend selections reflect Smith's aesthetic. "Everything's casual, comfortable and cute! Ruffled skirts, BoHo styles, denim with lace, beachy tanks, linen pants, feminine blouses... women love how they look - we have a dressing room on the truck - and they also love how far their dollar stretches. Because I don't have a traditional pricey storefront, I don't have to mark up so much; our prices run from about $20 to $50."

Or, your clothes could be totally free. "Hostesses can bring Let's Hang to their driveways, totally for free. They invite their friends over, put out some yummy drinks and appetizers, ladies who want to can shop - and the hostess gets 10 percent of the sales back in free clothes," says Smith. "It's a win/win/win for everyone involved. Plus, it's a great excuse to get together! Women need to do more of that!"

How Does a Private Shopping Party Work?
The Let's Hang Boutique goes straight to you, setting up with ease in your home, office, driveway, patio or special event. You'll earn 10 percent of the sales in merchandise from your event, or, if you're fundraising for a non-profit, a 10-percent portion of the sales. There are absolutely no costs associated with your Let's Hang Boutique truck event - it's totally free and there's never any pressure to buy anything. There's no minimum purchase, either; just gather your friends and family, provide appetizers and beverages to make it a fun party environment and hang out for a day or evening of shopping. Coordinating a craft or vendor show? Creating a special event? Looking for something to make your event unique? "Let's hang!"
