New Hinsdale IL Resale Shop to Open for Formal Wear, Wedding Attire, Accessories, Shoes, etc.

We are getting ready to open Formally Hers on Saturday, November 14th.   There is a planned preview party (if you’d like an invite to the preview party send me an email) scheduled for November 12th. It is tricky running a business and trying to get another opened at the same time. Thank goodness I have wonderful staff at Hinsdale Furriers and a carpenter husband. This weekend we paint and next week the fixtures start getting put together. It is exciting to be starting something new.

Wedding and Fashion Attire on Consignment at Reduced Prices

It is so unbelievable the amount of worn lovingly once evening wear that has come into the store. We already have over 300 garments just from one advertisement and a letter in our Hinsdale Furriers newsletter. It is fun to hear the stories of the outfits: where they were worn, what the occasion was or why they were not worn. It is also fun to see my employees drool over some of the items. The most fun was the day some one brought in Jimmy Choo Shoes and my employees played Cinderella. To their dismay not one of them was Cinderella.

    We have a 1920’s party coming up. Do you have any dresses that might work for something like that?

    • furs4u2 Says:

      Our dresses are all pretty current. I only know of one that may work. I would suggest a vintage shop. Sorry

  5. Rosie Says:

    do you have some nice evening formal dress?

    • furs4u2 Says:

      We have quite a few formals in all sizes from 0 to a size 20. Then we have a few fancy tops and a suit in 3x!

  6. Kaye Says:

    • furs4u2 Says:

  8. Kathy Fritschel Says:

    My daughter-in-law has her brand new-never worn wedding dress to sell. My son deployed to Iraq and they married suddenly downtown at court house before he left as advised by his military superiors. Long story short, he was injured by mortar fire and the church renewal of vows when he came back to the states and was well enough, NEVER happened. I have had the dress on eBay for 2 years and no luck selling it. Was surfing and came upon your shop. How do you price consignment items? am I correct that you receive 50% of the sale of the item? Thanks for your reply…

    • furs4u2 Says:

      First of all, I hope your son is doing well. Regarding the consignment of wedding dresses, we price new wedding dresses with tags at about half of the retail price. If it no longer has tags, we price them at roughly 1/3 the retail price. We keep wedding dresses on consignment for 180 days (twice the regular consignment period) and it is a 50/50 split when the dress sells. If the dress does not sell after 6 months, we can return the dress to you or donate the dress to charity and give you a donation receipt.

  9. M Eng Says:

    My wife just was handed down a coat from her Mom. Thus, the monogram does not match her name. Can you remove an old monogram and replace it with a neww one?

    • furs4u2 Says:

      Unless the monogram is on a patch, we cannot remove the old monogram. We can, however, create a “pocket” with the new monogram on it and cover the old one.

  10. pat Says:

    I have several dresses that my daughter has acquired in the past couple of years to wear to homecomings and proms. These dresses were all purchased new and worn once. Looking for some place to sell them. She just graduated and chances are will not be needing them in college.

    • furs4u2 Says:

      We would be happy to look at these dresses for consignment. If you are in the area, you are welcome to bring the dresses in any time during our business hours. If you are not local, you can ship them to us. Just make sure that the dresses (especially the prom dresses) are not too “summery”. If you have some that are summer styles, please keep those until February. FYI: we are closed Sept 4th, Sept 9th and Sept 18th.

  11. Sharon Thompson Says:

  16. deanna Says:

    I have two gowns for bigger girls, Only worn once for my prom. Do you purchase used gowns? I would like to get rid of them
    Thank you

    • furs4u2 Says:

      Deanna- yes we take prom dresses of all sizes. We are a consignment shop this means we do not purchase out right. You are paid for the items when they sell. Please check out our website for all the rules of consignment. Thank you for contacting us.

  17. Debbie Peterson Says:

    Do you have any size 16 wedding dresses? Are there any other shops you could recommend for used wedding dresses?

    • furs4u2 Says:

      Debbie- I am sorry but we have discontinued carrying wedding dresses. Our shop has limited space and we had lots of them brought for consignment and very few sold. We do much better with mother of the bride or groom or guest appareal. We refer to a boutique called I Do Bridal Resale in Chicago. Lots of good luck and I hope you will choose us for other items from shoes, formal wear, cocktail dresses, elegant daytime attire, evening bags and high end fashion jewelry.

  18. Vanessa Says:

    Do you rebuy prom dresses? I have a couple I would like to rid of.

    • furs4u2 Says:

      We do not BUY anything outright. All items we accept are on consignment. You can bring your dresses to us (or ship if necessary). After we check the garments very carefully, we will put them out for sale. You receive 50% of the selling price. We keep items for 90 days. All items must be in near perfect, ready-to-wear condition. Right now we are not accepting prom dresses. You can bring prom dresses in February. Thank you!

  19. Shannon Says:

    • furs4u2 Says:
