Let’s face it, we all love nice things. Maybe it’s that great designer handbag you’ve had your eye on, or the beautiful pair of shoes, or that perfect little black dress for a special occasion. Unfortunately, we don’t always love the designer prices. May and June heard about a resale shop called Clothes Mentor, and decided to check it out.
Clothes Mentor currently has 131 stores nationwide with several in the Chicago suburbs (and for our Buffalo, NY readers they have two stores, one in Amherst and one in West Seneca), with more opening soon. They are individually franchised so your local store may differ but they all buy and sell “gently used” high quality designer clothing, jewelry, shoes, belts, and other accessories. Women’s sizes run from 0-26 and include petites and maternity fashions. There is also a rewards program that earns you points when you shop, resulting in a 20% off certificate. We visited the store in Arlington Heights, Illinois which is celebrating one year in business this week. It was bustling with shoppers and women dropping off items to be sold. Here is a peek at some of the items in the store.
A Coach tote for $130.00
A statement necklace for $8.00
Tory Burch flats and Hunter Boots for well below retail price
Unfortunately these great shoes weren’t our size, but of course we did find a few other treats for ourselves.
A few fun cocktail rings for $4.00 a piece
A small Kate Spade purse for $16.25, a Coach wristlet for $25.00 and a cute leopard sequined clutch for $8.00
So ladies, if you want to get paid for cleaning out your closet, or you just want to treat yourself for fun, you may want to check out Clothes Mentor or another resale store near you.
