Seven Phoenix Shops Perfect for Back to School Essentials
Whether it feels like it or not, summer is coming to an end -- well, the vacation part of it anyway. And if you've already signed up for your classes then Phase 1 of your back-to-school agenda is complete. Time for Phase 2: Shopping.
Here are seven local businesses that can help you check off your back to school shopping list:
7. Butter Toast Boutique
Selling vintage apparel and accessories for men and women, Traci Nelson & Jasmine Jarrett at Butter Toast Boutique have the designing know-how to get you the right look for the fall semester.
As added incentive, they're now holding a back-to-school sale for ASU students. Just bring your ID or enter the promo could student20 at their online store for 20 percent off your purchase.

GROWop carries an eclectic blend of new and old, threads and dÃ©cor. Although they're not as heavy on the clothing as Butter Toast, GROWop has all those perfect little details to finish off a new apartment or outfit, such as clutches, scarves, candles, and jewelry. You might also want to take in the staging throughout the store as inspiration for your own place.
