  • Ribbon cutting: Born to Sparkle

    Born to Sparkle Pageants & Parties opened in April 2017 as a Consignment and Resale shop for Prom, Pageant, Wedding, and Dance Competition Wear. The owner, Wendy Brown, saw a need in the community for formal dress and glam wear, but the vision goes beyond that. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Aug. 15 to introduce the community to a beautifully redone party and pageant themed store.
