Five consignment shops you need to visit
Great reasons to shop consignment: you’ll save money, you won't be supporting fast fashion, you will supporting a small business, and you’ll discover brands - even designer labels - without investing lots of time or money. Luckily for you, Ottawa’s many consignment stores, some of which have been in business for decades, cater to all wardrobes.
▪️Bella Women’s Consignment celebrates 14 years of business this Thursday March 31st. During their anniversary event they’ll offer treats, fun shopping, and 25% off all new fashion lines (14% off everything else). 2039 Robertson Road, Unit 9. Happy Anniversary to the team at Bella!
▪️The Clothes Secret has been serving Ottawa’s fashion hunters for an incredible 30 years, and it shows no signs of slowing down. 1136 Bank Street or shop online.
▪️If like Carrie Bradshaw you sigh “Hello, Lover” when you spot a designer shoe, Valamode is for you. The shop specializes in authentic designer consignment clothing and accessories for women and men. The showroom is open by appointment only, but you can also visit (and swoon over) the online shop. 1367 Wellington Street West.
▪️The Thrifted Mini consigns quality babies’ and kids’ clothing and accessories. Sales happen in the shop’s Insta stories on Tuesday and Thursday nights.
▪️Clothes Encounters of a Second Time celebrated an amazing 40 years in business a few weeks ago. There’s no online shopping but if you visit the boutique at 67 Beechwood Avenue you might be lucky to meet Clara the Boss Cat as you wander the racks of women and men’s clothing.
