Shopping at a consignment store is like digging for buried treasure, except that it carries a slightly lower risk of being eaten by sand worms. Inject the thrill of discovery into a mundane shopping trip with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of consignment clothing, furniture, and accessories at Bargain Treasures, L.L.C. in Kenner.
Bargain Treasures' rotating stock invites men, women, and children to decorate their limbs with consignment finery and adorn their homes or treehouses with brand-name furnishings. Customers can backflip into a Tahari, Adrianna Papell, or Liz Claiborne suit set ($24.99+) before an important function, or snag a set of Pier 1 Imports cobalt-blue swirl glassware ($2.99–$6.99/piece) to prepare for an explosively beautiful game of home-bowling. Experienced shopkeepers stand by to perform alterations, infusing gently used apparel with a sense of newness and ensuring that 8'x11' rugs ($249) hug curves when worn as robes.
