If Consignment Shops Could Speak

Consignment Bridal Gown with SleevesI love the stories I hear while working at our new resale shop. It is almost as if the wedding dresses, evening gowns and even the evening bags and shoes have a life of their own. When the consignees bring in the items I hear where they wore the items. We have a dress that went to Obama’s Inaugural Ball and a wedding dress that was never worn because she found out in the nick of time “what the groom was really like”.
I also get to hear the plans for the items being purchased. Since our store specializes in evening and formal wear most of the purchases are made with an event in mind. Today alone, I sold St. John suit off-white with rhinestones that is going to a Bar Mitzvah in New York City, a pair of Ferragamo pumps that are going on a Cruise and Bridal Gown. My favorite was the  birdal gown to a bride who was on a budget – she shared with me that by only spending $300 on her dress she could include a few more friends on her invite list.

This is definitely a rewarding business. I will from time to time share other stories about the adventures of our formal wear!
