10 Hot Trends This Season and We’ve Got Them

We may not all be thrilled about the days getting shorter and colder but we are really excited to start wearing all the fabulous fall trends out there!  There are so many trends that we are loving,  like the continuation of the animal print trend, velvet, shearling and more.  Chunky knits were huge on the runway and with this past weekend’s cold and wind, we were longing to be wrapped in one!  Ponchos were also another very trend this season and are easy to throw over leggings or a pair of jeans and you’re out the door!

We get new consignments in Monday through Friday from 10 am to 2 pm and on Saturdays from 10 am to 1 pm so there is always something new coming in.  No appointment is needed to consign.  For more information check out our website!  Here are 10 hot trends this season and we’ve got them!

Come Celebrate 30 Years With Us!

It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since we first opened our doors, but it has, and this Saturday, September 20th we are celebrating!  30 years ago not as many women’s consignment stores were open and sometimes was looked down upon as almost a stigma attached to buying someone else’s clothing.  Well, those days are long past with women from every income bracket flocking in to score a great deal on a piece of designer clothing or designer handbag they could otherwise not afford.  We are also different in that we pride ourselves on only accepting the best of the best clothing, in perfect shape, and no more than 2 years old.  All shoes must be barely worn (like once!) or brand new.  Along with a huge client base of consigners who fill our shoppe each season with the most amazing goodies, we are well known for our exceptional selection of costume and fine jewelry, all at remarkable prices!

So mark your calendar for this Saturday the 20th of September from 10 am to 5 pm and enjoy a day filled with all kinds of bargains!  It’s our way of thanking you for being so loyal to us for 30 years!
