First, I’ll start by telling you that there is NO Shame in shopping consignment, in fact it should be embraced. With the economic down turn we are all looking for ways to stretch our dollars. Updating your wardrobe might not be as high on the priority list as putting food on your table, but if you are fashion conscious and on a budget, shopping consignment just might be the answer to all of your style woes.
Giorgi’s Boutique, Exquisitely Unique Consignment is a shop that sells new and gently worn merchandise at discounted prices. Consignment shops such as ourselves should not be confused with thrift stores. Thrift stores will sell donated items and nothing is given back to the person who donates, but a tax deduction. At Giorgi’s we share the profits with our consigner so that you have the opportunity to receive a check at the end of the consignment period or use your earnings as store credit at any point towards new purchases at Giorgi’s. It is what I call “guilt free” shopping!
Yes, although many of our items are brand new with tags there is a fair percentage of merchandise that is gently worn but you will find is in pristine condition. Our pricing is much lower than what you will find in the department stores and our collection is more interesting that what you will find at the malls. We are very particular of the merchandise that we take in so that your shopping experience is a pleasurable one. We avoid clothing with tears, odors and stains and we stay within a 2-3 year range of fashion trends. Some exceptions may apply on higher end classic merchandise.
Shopping consignment for a one time item is also a very smart way to shop. Items such as wedding attire, prom wear and formal wear can be extremely expensive at retail, but you can get them at a great discounted rate at a consignment shop. Trust me when I say that with shopping consignment you will be less likely to have the same dress on as the woman sitting across from you at the dinner table or worse yet, the woman next to you on the dance floor boogying it down!
Some consignment shops offer more than just apparel. At Giorgi’s we offer accessories, handbags, foot wear and jewelry to complete your look! Our shop is unique; as it is clean, organized and we offer personalized service in suiting you if you wish. We also offer an on-site seamstress service for a small additional price; our motto is if you love it and it doesn’t fit…..we will make it fit! We have a treasure chest of fabulous finds and top name designers as well as carrying very cute no-names!
If you would like more BANG for your buck, kiss those old clothes good-bye and consign with us! Get rid of the clothes or accessories you no longer wear and that are just taking up space in your closet and make some money at the same time. Just because we are now all a lot more conscious of our wallet does not mean that we have to look like it! The consignment business is booming! Look great and be smart, shopping consignment is a great way to save money and stay fashionable! Take the Giorgi’s Challenge: Find 10 items in your closet and donate the proceeds to your favorite charity!
We hope to see you soon in our consignment boutique.
