Unlike new clothes, preloved clothes are already broken in, have had time to establish their pedigree, and are almost always house trained. Save on ensemble obedience training with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of consignment clothing and more at Just Like New, with locations in Vernon and Glastonbury.
With two decades of experience in the wardrobe- and wallet-enhancing business, Just Like New caters to the discerning eyes of smart, chic shoppers with a constantly rotating inventory of gently used wearables, some of which are sourced from New York City at the start of each season. Stringent guidelines for accepted items ensure that the shops' stocks are always stylish, well maintained, and durable. Although pricing varies based on demand and garment condition, Just Like New has previously sold 7 for All Mankind jeans for $18, Chico's jackets for $12, Lia Sophia earrings for $8, and J.Jill sweaters for $10. The boutique also carries a fashionable flock of home décor and furnishings for patrons who wish to update hopelessly bare chartreuse cave walls.
Just Like New
Over the course of 25 years, family-operated Just Like New has inspected apparel, accessories, and home furnishings from thousands of consigners, accepting only the pieces that meet strict quality and style standards. At the start of each fashion season, the family treks to New York City to gather enough designer duds to restock two 5,000-square-foot locations. Clothing, shoes, and accessories by classic brands such as Coach and Ann Taylor adorn shelves and keep mannequins from being charged with public indecency, and a children's section outfits youngsters in apparel purchased exclusively from catalog brands and specialty stores. Just Like New's jewelry selection glitters with 14-karat gold and sterling silver; vintage and costume jewelry occasionally makes the cut by way of jingling the shop owners' favorite songs. Vintage glassware, furniture, and artwork make unique design accents for the home.
