WHAT IS CONSIGNMENT
Not to be confused with the idea of ‘thrift’, consignment is resale, and in our case, resale that has gone upscale. Our take on consignment means that we look for designer clothes and accessories in great condition, creating a world of unique wardrobes with a smaller carbon footprint.
