Best New Resale Boutique - 2010
The idea of perpetuity is integral to the philosophy of fashionable resale, so if Perpetual Clothing boutique wants to wear that on its chic little sleeve, that's okay by us. Focusing on trendy and modern better brands, from Anthropologie to True Religion, the shop peddles a constantly morphing supply of high-end secondhand that will have you sashaying about stylishly for a fraction of what it would cost you to wear the same duds new. And if you bring in your own rethreads to consign, you can even make a few dollars back. Shop owner Lanine Baccam also works to green the world by enlisting customers to bring her plastic mall and boutique shopping bags to reuse in the store, along with old greeting cards, calendars, postcards and any other heavyweight stock that's blank on one side, which she cuts up and uses for price tags. Now, that's talkin' trash!
