The 3/50 Project!

Saving The Brick & Mortars Our Nation Is Built On...

The 3/50 Project is an idea proposed by Cinda Baxter, and its purpose is to save the local businesses everyone knows and loves. Help the community of Glen Ellyn by spending $50 every month at three local stores instead of major chain stores. You already spend $50 in a month on groceries, spend that same money at McChesney & Miller, or spend the money for your Mom or child's birthday gift at Paisley On Main right in the downtown of your community. Cinda Baxter discovered the facts, and these facts will help stimulate your local community and economy!

All it takes is you picking three independently owned local businesses, like Paisley On Main, and spending $50 each month in these businesses in order to help your community. For more information on the 3/50 Project and to see the many supporters, visit:

The Beginning of 'Paisley On Main'

Formerly Giggles 'N Gaggles,

Only four years later in Spring 2008, Giggles 'N Gaggles was transformed into a beautiful, new gift boutique, Paisley On Main, truly a dream come true! The change sent Sue in a completely new direction with her premiere line being Vera Bradley merchandise. Paisley On Main is now proud to feature many different items, offering everything from baby gifts to adult gifts. There is something for everyone on your list at the beautiful boutique!

The change has challenged Sue and her wonderful manager, Jennifer, to think outside the box, and constantly look for new and exciting products to add into the store. Both women truly do love what they do, and really enjoy the Paisley customers, whom often become friends! Paisley On Main is happy to be involved in the Glen Ellyn community through many charitably donations and partnerships. Sue and Jennifer are both proud in being a part of a small store that has a beautiful and big heart!
