Today's deal-within-a-deal threatens to create an infinite paradox comparable to disassembling a never-ending Russian nesting doll between two facing mirrors inside Hilbert's Grand Hotel. For $15, you get $50 worth of pre-owned designer clothes and accessories at Women's Closet Exchange in Sappington. The handpicked selection of pristine lady things has earned the store praise and recognition from St. Louis Woman magazine.
Lightly worn clothes that look heavily unworn fill the Women's Closet Exchange's bright interior, with many bearing designer labels such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Coach, Dolce & Gabbana, and Juicy Couture, among others. Due to the nature of the business, the inventory is in constant flux—questing shoppers never know what gems they might unearth from a rack, a shelf, or the diamond mines beneath the store. On any given day, one might find a pair of Tory Burch flip-flops for $39 (approximate $200 retail value), a Dolce and Gabbana dress for $89 (around $600 retail value), or some Citizens of Humanity jeans for $59 (approximate $195 retail value).
Human filters with a skilled eye give prospective goods a careful inspection before okaying the best for sale, so only the cleanest, most contemporary, toppest-notch of merchandise makes it to the floor. Discovering your new favorite garment is half the fun of shopping at Women's Closet Exchange; the other half is playing Ghost in the Graveyard amongst the racks, so buy extra Groupons for a few finery-famished friends.
