Live Lingerie Models in Augusta

The live models at Spellbound, a lingerie store in Augusta, have received mixed reviews.
"It's tainting the wholesome businesses down here," said Carrie Rossignol, co-owner of Video Game Exchange. "I think it's selfish, and I think it's morally reprehensible."

Others suggest that the women, who have graced Spellbound's storefront a few days a week since September, bring life and beauty to an often colorless street.

"It's like a New York thing. It's urban. It's edgy," said Stacy Gervais, owner of Stacy's Hallmark Store and a founder of a downtown merchants group. "We need a shtick - something that we do that attracts people and gets us remembered." [Link]
The three models — Tara Manns, Amanda Richards, and Jesyka Clark — are paid only in lingerie, but "volunteer because they love being seen."
