This is a chain consignment store and we just got our first one here in my prairie city a month ago. It's like walking into a birthday present. Honestly, think of it as Winners little sister. It's all picked to be current and trendy. But it's like walking into a Winners and everything is on mega clearance. Some examples of things I saw at the grand opening: never worn turquoise Spring espadrille wedges $10, never worn tall flat leather Le Chateau boots $15, statement cocktail rings (like giant owls) all $2, maxi dresses $8. It's all in great/brand new condition. And there were women of every age group shopping there, they market to teens/college age but most of the women there were over 40 and buying everything from Lululemon to killer purses. They also had for sale things like perfume, books and still in the box jewelry; so hey, when Christmas rolls around no one will know you bought that Juicy Couture charm bracelet still in the box for $4.
FEELING THRIFY? and What to save a buck or two? Then Plato's is the place to go!
I found out about these stores while on clinical in Buffalo NY. This store works like a second hand clothing store. The great thing about them is that they will pay YOU for your older and gently used brand name clothing items, including accessories and shoes. You receive payment for clothes that you bring in. The store will only exchange items for money if the item is within recent trends and in good condition. They have a system that they can compare the original price of the item and then they reduce that considerably for resale. Typically, most items are within $1.00 - $20 for T-shirts, blouses etc. Depending on the brand name the price varies but it is almost ALWAYS an a amazing deal. You need time to browse and peruse through the racks of clothing but you can always find a diamond in the rough if you have enough patience.
