By exploring resale to fill your closet, you can help save our natural resources, while developing a killer wardrobe. This has got to make shopping more fun!
You’ll Score Designer Pieces for Less
Do you have luxury taste and a more modest budget? Or, maybe you can afford to buy new, but would prefer to spend your money on other things. Resale allows you to score pieces from your favorite high-end designers at a fraction of the cost of shopping retail. Truly savvy shopping!
Especially in affluent areas like Orange County, the clothing, shoes and jewelry that end up in resale boutiques are very often upscale and barely worn. In fact, the “Marie Kondo Effect” has many consumers letting go of items that don’t bring them joy and are less frequently worn, rather than keeping them in their closets waiting for an occasion to wear them.
Resale boutiques offer shoppers a chance to discover unique pieces at a price that makes it hard to say no. Rather than shopping at those popular mass retailers, resale offers the chance to own one-of-a-kind items that are timeless.
An added bonus to finding a local resale boutique: you can try the items on before you purchase them. Shopping online is a bit of a risk, especially in resale scenarios where the item isn’t available in multiple sizes. By shopping in-store, you can find the perfect fit and style and take the guesswork out of the shopping experience.
