Kim Petrie, Owner of 47 Main has over 30 years experience selling and marketing high end technology solutions to corporate and government enterprise clients in both North America and Australia. Her success in the tech industry has given her the expertise and means to deal with, sell and market to clients in a professional, compassionate and giving way all the while promoting business savvy negotiations that produce win/win situations for all involved. After many years in the tech industry Kim felt a void because deep down she always knew that "fashion was her passion" Aligning with her desire for a new and meaningful, fun yet environmental conscience project, 47 Main born,
Kim has had a vision to own a fashion boutique for many years and last year during her seasonal closet purge of high quality women's fashion items (and just after researching the destruction and devastation to our planet caused by garment production), she pondered that many could benefit greatly with a women's upscale fashion resale boutique in her region and globally. Her vision is to provide an affordable way to purchase high quality name brand fashion items at a fraction of the retail cost while contributing positively to the environment.
On a compassionate note, 47 Main sincerely focuses on helping people rather than making money. Of course we strive to be profitable and sustainable by purchasing wisely from our suppliers, however, our approach is to collaborate with regional artists, consultants and service providers to assist them with promotion and their future goals. We believe this approach will ensure goodwill in the community, communicate a "pay it forward" ecosystem and provide a positive outcome for all involved.
We pride ourselves in being able to offer women an affordable way to purchase items of $100, $200 or $300 value at approximately $30-$50 per item. Many women cannot afford upscale in their wardrobe and we make it possible.
47 Main partners with providers who handcraft galvanized steel and barn wood clothing racks/furniture, original framed Mandela graphic art, jewelry, down pillows, custom aprons and object trouve/industrial art. Our goal is to increase awareness of talent in our region and our philosophy is to help others.
