Like Frankenstein, the best outfits are composed with a mish-mash of used parts and a flagrant disregard for scientific ethos. Build a comely creature of fashion with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of new and like-new children’s, maternity, and formal clothing at AJ’s Attic in Westland.
AJ’s Attic shelters a multitude of new and gently used attire for grownups and kids alike. Peruse the racks stuffed with barely donned onesies, pants, and other outfit-making items for burgeoning fashionistas, ranging in size from preemie to children’s 18 ($1+). Tots can look dapper enough to pass grandparent inspections and present quarterly reports on their lemonade stand's accrued tax liabilities in a size 4 designer boy's suit with shirt and tie ($15), and bun-baking moms-to-be can spruce up baby bumps with brand-name maternity dresses ($15+). Prom hopefuls and party hostesses can rummage through the formal clothing section in hopes of uncovering perfect frocks, such as a short twilight-purple party dress ($17.95) or a full-length navy-blue embellished cocktail dress ($17.95).
Those looking to unburden basements of outgrown items can consign their goods and enjoy a 50/50 split of the profits. AJ’s Attic is open for bargain hunting seven days a week.
