We were so excited recently when we received an invite to the new Rags Consignments location in Denver. Rags Consignments is a high end consignment shop headquartered in Boulder, Colorado. If you follow this blog then you are probably aware that I’m a total sucker for high fashion. My fashion day dreams are filled with Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Burberry coats and Jimmy Choo shoes and boots. Unfortunately due to my budget, my reality is filled with Express, H&M, TJ Maxx and DSW shoes and boots. So you can imagine just how excited I was to check out the new Denver Rags Consignments location.
Rags Consignments carries a wide variety of brand name clothing and accessories. They carry a small amount of vintage items but most of their inventory is from the last five years with a focus on designer labels or mall brands such as Ann Taylor, Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus. Prices range from maybe $6 for a basic tee to $500 for a Burberry jacket. One of Rags Consignments claims to fame is their awesome selection of premium denim. So if you just must have a pair of 7 For All Mankind jeans this is the place to pick up a pair. And to top it off all pairs of premium denim are only $52.75 a pair!
If you’re lucky enough to have a nice stockpile of designer labels in your own closet you can work with Rags Consignments as a seller. They accept up to 30 items per day and all accepted items are put on the floor for 4 weeks. Sellers receive 40% of all sales revenue, which is credited to each seller’s account and can be used as store credit or issued in cash. After 4 weeks the seller has 3 days to pick up unsold items, otherwise the items are donated. And here’s something really cool, Rags Consignments works directly with organizations like Dress for Success to ensure that all donated items are actually placed in the hands of those in need and none of the items are resold.
Demand for high fashion at affordable prices has driven the high end consignment market in the last couple of decades. If you’re one of those ladies (like myself) who would just die to step into a sexy pair of Louboutin pumps but don’t want to pay full price this is an excellent option.
