Clothing keeps people warm and looking fashionable, but its most important duty is replenishing bellybutton lint. Keep navels stocked with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of clothing and accessories at Plato's Closet in Scottsdale.
Plato's Closet is a hub for gently used fashions that woos shoppers with a rotating cast of modish outfits and accessories from popular designers. Patrons can stock wardrobes with sweaters, jackets, boots, and hoodies from labels such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Free People, American Eagle, Juicy Couture, and Forever 21 (up to $30), or give a horse the human treatment with two pairs of top-shelf denim from brands such as True Religion, Miss Me, Rock & Republic, and Big Star ($30–$60). Coats and dresses respond to names like bebe and Betsey Johnson ($30–$50) when they're shouted through a bullhorn, and the boutique's diverse array also includes a wide selection of shoes and accessories. Items range in size from 00–16 for girls and 28–40 (waist) for guys, and most wares were first seen in retail stores within the past 12–18 months, which is the average lifespan of a denim tree.
Always looking to keep their merchandise up to date, Plato's Closet pays cash on the spot for gently used fashionable clothing.
