Have you ever wondered how to get that Gucci dress without emptying your bank account? Closet Addiction consignment boutique sells gently worn labels like Prada, Marc Jacobs and Versace for a fraction of their retail price. But designers aren’t the only names you’ll find on the racks of Closet Addiction. Favourites like Rock and Republic and Juicy Couture round out the prestige. The price tags vary widely, but you can get a $5 pair of sunglasses or a $700 Prada coat in the same trip. Staff estimate that the average cost is about 66 per cent less than the same piece new.
Accessories & Fun
Some great accessory finds are also offered here. Funky sunglasses, European handbags and brand new jewelry are a score for infusing any wardrobe with some pizzazz. Also in stock are unique products like purse hangers made from Swarovski crystals, brought in from Calgary as brand new items, which also make the perfect gift for those hard-to-buy-for gal friends. The folks at Closet Addiction are also happy to provide a consultation to assist you. Private in-home appointments can also be booked for wardrobe sessions.
Buying and Selling Clothes
The key to the consignment game is having your own duds to sell. Call or email the store and book a time to go over your potential merchandise. They must be laundered or dry-cleaned and without wrinkles to be considered. There are different consignment rates depending on if you want an in-store credit or cash. Note that all designer items must come with the original receipt, which helps stop the reselling of knock offs.
