Big Score at the Consignment Store

Crossroads Trading Co. is one of our favorite consignment stores. The folks there are pretty picky about what they accept on consignment. As a result, the pickings are pretty darn good.

Evidence: last Friday, I scored a pair of J Brand skinny jeans for my daughter. Brick red and in perfect condition, they cost just over forty bucks. Originally, I’m fairly certain they would have been at least $150. If you doubt me, go to the J Brand website and peruse the offerings. And the dark purple (eggplant, to be specific) Quicksilver jeans I got her were half off because they’d sat on the rack for a while, which meant they rang up at a whopping $7.50. She bought herself several tops, and we went halves on a couple of sweaters, both of them brands sold at the Anthropologie store down the road. But the best thing: the colorfully happy Emilio Pucci rainboots, probably a couple hundred originally (at least), marked at sixty-five at Crossroads, then half off that. Now the thing is, my daughter loves rainboots. Loves them! And this particular pair . . . I mean—Pucci!? Bring on the clouds!

Where do you get your deals? Fill me in.
