Sustainably Stylish

We are utterly thrilled with the warm reception to our new consignment clothing section. While we do get a lot of surprise looks when people walk in and see that it has grown to be a boutique within our store, the fact is, it just fits so well.
We get to offer cute, preloved, only lightly worn pieces to our fashionable Edgemont community, and we further extend our reduce-reuse-recycle ♻️ ethos. That sounds like a win-win to us.
So what are the benefits to buying consignment clothing, over brand new pieces?
1. Environmental impact: consignment clothing significantly reduces the carbon footprint associated with the production of new garments, as it promotes reusing and recycling. This helps in cutting down on waste and conserving natural resources.

2. Cost-effective: shopping consignment is generally more budget-friendly. It offers consumers the opportunity to purchase quality clothing at a fraction of the original retail price. Sure, we all like a fresh addition to our wardrobe once in a while (and our kids grow out of their clothes on a regular basis), but that doesn’t mean you have to buy new, just new-to-you.

3. Unique finds: consignment shops often house unique, vintage, or one-of-a-kind items, providing an opportunity for shoppers to find distinctive pieces that stand out from mainstream retail offerings.

4. Quality assurance: consignment stores typically have a selection process for the items they accept, ensuring that the clothing is of good quality and in excellent condition.

5. Supports local economy: shopping at consignment stores helps support local businesses and can contribute to the local economy. It also often means supporting small business owners and contributing to a sense of community.
We are getting in some great brands, including some designer goods - and current, on-trend AND classic pieces. Shoes, boots, kids’ clothing and a new men’s section are also in store. Fashion lovers, come on down!
