Unlike secondhand clothes, secondhand fruit is useless thanks to an overabundance of juggle wounds. Enjoy secondhand products untainted by clowns with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of secondhand designer handbags and Positive Energy T-shirts at Twist.
Twist is a consignment boutique stocked with hand-selected designer apparel and accessories as well as locally crafted jewelry, art, and clothing. Browse a collection of high-end handbags—from Fendi, Coach, Hobo International, and more—arranged amid the vibrant earth tones of the boutique's interior ($40+). T-shirt wearers can check out Positive Energy, a California-based, all-organic T-shirt line that sports simple and humanely raised designs. Each tee features a single word across the front with a thoughtful environmental message on the back, such as the Wild ribbed tee, inscribed with a message about wildlife preservation on the back ($32.99). Instead of wafting through a sea of grimy thrift-store blazers with rumpled tissues lodged in the pockets, with today’s deal, you'll get secondhand bags and brand-new eco-friendly tees that smell fresher than a 16-year-old's bow-adorned first car parked on a driveway made of air fresheners.
- Her humility notwithstanding, [Carolyn] Bowers is Twist’s secret weapon, a one-woman treasure-hunting operation with satchels, hobos and clutches as the booty. – Traci Hukill, SantaCruz.com
- Seriously, shopping here is a guilt-free pleasure. What I love most is that TWIST doesn't feel, smell or look like a consignment or vintage shop, there is a mix of consignment, new and some vintage as well as other items sprinkled around the store. – Anthony C., Yelp
