Recently recognized by Richmond Bride magazine for its elegant bridal section, It’s Chic Again! Upscale Consignment is owned by 25-year retail veteran Debbie Ooi, who handpicks the shop’s inventory of designer clothing, shoes, handbags, and accessories. Names such as Chanel, Michael Kors, and Jimmy Choo make frequent appearances in the spacious store, rubbing elbows and shoulder pads with labels from Coach, bebe, and Ann Taylor. Each item is typically marked at 50–60 percent off its retail price, and the staff carefully inspects and interrogates each item to make sure no knockoffs or fakes weasel their way inside.
Because style has no size limits, the inventory typically includes plus-size items as well as smaller choices starting at size 0. Local artisans keep the shop stocked with one-of-a-kind jewelry that can fit all shapes and tastes, and high-end consignment jewelry may include precious metals snuggling in the trademark turquoise bags of Tiffany & Co. or antique mood rings that change from black to white.
