What are your thoughts on consignment shops? Do you think that they only carry old worn out items? Are they targeted to just a specific age group and unorganized? Or are they simply just not your cup of tea? Well after reading this, hopefully you will have changed your mind.
Located in Johns Creek, Atlanta, GA in a very upscale neighborhood “Alexis Suitcase” consignment shop has a different appeal. With its boutique style flare, Alexis Suitcase offers a range of items from handbags, shoes, jewelry to fur coats!
How it works is the consigner (seller) gives “Alexis Suitcase” an item to sell for FREE and if the item sells the consignment shop makes a commission on the item. The consigner makes a profit as well. The commission is based on the value of the item. Not bad right?
What makes Alexis Suitcase so different is its boutique like atmosphere with an upscale appeal. They are up to date with trends and advertise up to a size 18. The store is well kept, organized and they carry brands from Gap to Gucci! Most importantly is their staff that is very friendly.
Jayna Thompson the owner of Alexis Suitcase consignment was inspired by her mom to start the business. Her mom told her it would cost a lot cheaper to open a business and with the economy people are looking to spend less! Consumers still want to look nice and fashionable without the high pricing. Mom was right! Almost 8 years later Alexis Suitcase is still standing strong and doing well with a total of three stores located in the Metro-Atlanta area, Buckhead, Johns Creek and Sandy Springs.
So the next time you think of a consignment shop think of “Alexis Suitcase, Part consignment, Part boutique.”
