I'm not big on resale shops, it seems whenever I've gone to thrift stores looking at clothes, all the clothes are several years old, like the type of things that I finally cleaned out of my closet, a good 10+ years after buying them.
I've been to one resale shop in Evanston that looked like they had nice clothes but if I remember correctly, it wasn't really my style.
Then last year I heard about this one in a neighboring town and checked it out. It was so cute! It didn't even look like a thrift or resale shop, more like a boutique, and the clothes were newer and I easily found things I liked.
I was bummed to see they had moved to another town, which isn't too far from me. So I was planning on going tomorrow with a friend that I'd been telling her about it. Well I was surfing a bit earlier, randomly wandering around their fanpage and I found a bad review. Read the comments and googled and was saddened to hear such bad stuff about the place. It's actually the owner that's apparently a rip off artist, she's not paying folks, etc.
I'm so bummed, I really liked the shop and had bought a few things from there. Including my very cute lavender raincoat. I wish someone would open another shop like that (especially in their old location) but be a legit company. :( If I had money I'd consider it and hire folks to run it.
I think I'll check out this other resale shop and then hit the mall instead, tomorrow. I know there's another resale shop east of the mall, I had stopped in one day several weeks ago. I didn't care much for the clothes that day but who knows, maybe they have some other things in now. Also might need to plan a day to go to the one in Evanston this summer to see what they have.
