At the end of last month, Etoile Boutique was robbed, and now the much-loved vintage and locally-sourced shop is looking to move past the violation with the help of some of Orlando's best businesses. Here's how it works:
Visit Etoile Boutique before Wednesday, Oct. 1, to purchase raffle tickets ($5 for one or 3 for $10). On Oct. 1, Etoile will draw the winners and post to Facebook and Instagram (@etoileboutique). You must pick up your prize within one week or they will draw a new winner.
They will be adding more prizes as the month continues, but so far, the generosity of other local businesses demonstrates a real show of support. Foundation Presents (Social/Beacham) and House of Blues are donating multiple pairs of concert tickets to see major national bands like the Filthy Six, St. Vincent, Metronomy, American Authors, the Devil Makes Three, Benjamin Booker and New Kingston. Then there are gift certificates to awesome places like Park Ave CDs ($50), Washburn Imports ($100), Stardust Video & Coffee ($35), Primrose Tattoo ($100), Alchemy Salon (free haircut) and great restaurants like Ethos ($25), La Empanada ($20), Sushi & Seoul on the Roll ($25) and K Restaurant ($50). Local artists like Noah Howell and Jillian Says will also give away prizes, as well as donations from the artisans at East End Market. Plus raffled bar tabs at the Matador, Barley & Vine, Milk Bar, Will's Pub/Lil Indies, the Falcon Bar, Imperial, the Woods, the Lodge and the Parkview. It's all detailed on the flier here, but keep your eyes on Etoile's social media for more prizes to be added.
