July 2016 Newsletter
We are now are in the heart of summer, and from everyone at Changes in Latitude, we hope you had happy Independence Day! Whether you were able to get the chance to get out of town for a few days or not, we hope your 4th of July was a good one.
The Summer & Fall ‘Sympli the Best Trunk’ Show is here and you’re invited! In a special two day event, we will have a Sympli representative visit the store to show off the line’s newest styles and colors. Visit us on Friday, July 29th, 11am – 5pm, or Saturday, July 30th, 10am – 4pm to see the dizzying number of styles and color combinations Sympli has to offer for their Summer & Fall 2016 collection. A brand whose signature look is an elegant flow, Sympli still manages to make the most comfortable clothing against the skin while remaining completely wrinkle free. This event is a store favorite, and we look forward to you joining us later this month.
As a reminder, the summer is such a busy (and exciting!) time for all you travelers out there that we have not planned any shows until September. But be sure to join us in the fall. There are some great shows coming up!

Product of the Month - Stretch Wrap
People have been using stretch wrap to protect their bags for years now. It can shield your suitcase from the weather, scratches, dirt, theft, and an accidental opening. It also makes your luggage easy to identify, which decreases the chance of someone else mistakenly taking it. Using stretch wrap adds longevity to your bags and gives you a piece of mind. However, people often pay a hefty fee at the airport to have this done for them. We now have a portable, cheaper version for you to use yourself. In clear plastic with a blue pattern, you can protect your bag at an affordable price. It is TSA compliant and you can wrap up to four full-sized pieces of luggage once you leave the USA, where the only other person who should be opening up your bag is you!
Travel Tip of the Month
Ask locals for tips! Keep your guidebook by your side to figure out what sites and things you cannot miss out on, but also rely on locals! Ask them where they like to eat or what they like to do around town. Locals are, after all, experts in their area. They can suggest hole-in-the-wall restaurants that might give you a better idea of local cuisine, things to do that aren’t swarmed by crowds, and when the best times are to see things. The list of tips they might offer is endless. And you never know, you could always end up with a new friend!
