Clothing often suffers bouts of depression after being sent to a consignment store, convinced it will never have a chance to warm scalps, flatter behinds, or conceal breakfast-cereal-mascot tattoos again. Restore fashion’s self-esteem with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of designer clothing, shoes, and accessories at Private Collection Consignment in Madison.
Private Collection Consignment stocks an ever-changing selection of designer and name-brand clothes, shoes, and accessories that rotates every 45 days. Designer jeans from labels including True Religion ($105 on average) and 7 For All Mankind ($60 on average) try to stay tough and unyielding but secretly swell with hope every time a potential owner tries them on. Knit tops ($12–$15) and dresses from Tory Burch ($125–$165) come in sizes ranging from 00 to 26 to accommodate fashionistas of all shapes. The store's eclectic stock of shoes, handbags, and other accessories adds a finishing touch to stylish outfits for vacations, nights out on the town, and blind dates with the Invisible Man.
Private Collection Consignment
Private Collection Consignment's stylists curate a fashionable assortment of well-cared-for, upscale women's clothing, shoes, and purses that changes almost daily. The store doesn't accept clothing that is more than two years old, ensuring a collection free of outdated duds such as last season’s shoulder-padded togas. Shoppers can keep their wardrobes on trend with dresses, jeans, and tops from brands such as DKNY, Vince, and Burberry. The well-organized store also routinely carries maternity and petite clothing, as well as colorful jewelry to accessorize newly assembled ensembles. Though not all the pieces in the shop are designer or couture, they are all brand-name, ensuring you won't have to spend hours sifting through piles of low-quality frocks.
