Flash-Sale Shopping from JP Selects

How cool is this? An eco-friendly flash-sale site I’ve been loving called LovingEco joined forces with a website called JP Selects, which was founded by sometime Austinite, entrepreneur John Paul DeJoria. John Paul DeJoria is the co-founder of Paul Mitchell Systems and Patron Spirits.

Burgers aren’t hard to find in Aspen (LOVE Belly Up’s double and sweet potato fries!!) But burgers under $10? Rare.
