Sarah Palin’s Consignment Store “Out of the Closet” – Is Not For Joe The Plumber

Out of the Closet’s Current Picks

Like the good old maverick that she is she could have said:



The little outlet— a five-minute walk from the governor’s office — trends way more toward designer jeans, elegant evening gowns and tailored skirt suits than old sweaters. Anybody who walks in looking for a $5 bargain better just walk out again: A Stella McCartney jacket, wool and silk and a generous size 6, goes for $295 (matching velvet pumps: $75, and Furla black tote: $195).

“It’s not just the governor. I have women of all different political beliefs that shop here. I have one woman who’s been coming in here who was one of the leading anti-Sarah Palin people. I’ve got the chief justice of the Supreme Court who shops here,” said owner Ellen Arvold. From””

“There is no Shoppin’-gate. Someone from the Republican Party sent someone out to buy all these things for Sarah and her family.  Then, someone else told her to wear them.

Now, they are fussin’ that a $13,200 campaign “communications consultant” turned out to be Sarah’s makeup artist, who actually made more than McCain’s makeup artist (You go, girl!  Oops!  Can we say that in this campaign?)  Darn that ol’ Washin’ton Post.  However, that is all old news from last month’s expenditures.

Finally, not that Shoppin’-gate wasn’t enough to put poor Sarah through, the durn ol’ New York Times has to get it’s oar in.  It says that Palin’s makeup artist – Amy Strozzi – got a raise and a new title.

Ms. Strozzi, who was nominated for an Emmy award for her makeup work on the television show “So You Think You Can Dance?”, was paid $22,800 for the first two weeks of October alone, according to the records. The campaign categorized Ms. Strozzi’s payment as “Personnel Svc/Equipment.”

To top that off, the dang Times says Sarah Saks Pack’s makeup artist was paid more than Sen. McCain’s foreign policy advisor Randy Scheunemann”  From:  Now Public (
