From Louis Vuitton and Chanel to Alexander Wang and Versace, we all have a love for high-end fashion brands, but for some of us, our favorite brands just aren’t in our budgets (yet). However, with consignment shopping, we are able to get those brands we love at a great price. Consignment shops are retail stores that sell secondhand clothing and accessories at lower prices than the original retail price. Atlanta has a plethora of thrift and consignment shops, but we found the top stores that carry high-end fashion brands for the low.
Voted Best Consignment Shop by Jezebel Magazine, Alexis Suitcase Upscale Consignment Boutique is first on our list. Founded by Jayna Thompson in 2005 and three store locations later, it has since kept her idea of being able to shop current, high-end styles in a boutique on a friendly budget. You can also shop their gently used designer fashions directly on their Instagram during their first come first served sales. If you would like to consign, brands that they love include Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, DVF, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Adidas, Nike and more. With starting prices of $10 going up to the thousands, there’s a budget price and something amazing for everyone.
Another designer consignment shop is B Chic Atlanta, founded in 2007 by Nancy Scalera. Scalera developed a love for fashion by shopping sample sales in the garment district, warehouses, and consignments in New York. The team handpicks all of their items that are new and gently used. Popular designer brands include Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Ferragamo, Hermes, Manolo Blahnik, and David Yurman.
