Consigment Shops Embrace the Interwebs
Jan 11, 2012
I do the majority of my shopping online. This is partly because I work long hours, but mostly because I can always find my size online, I can always find the best price on my item and using eBates, I can earn cash back. So why would I ever go to the mall?
Perhaps this is why I don’t spend as much time cruising local thrift, consignment and vintage stores. I know that there are great deals to be had, but it just seems like such a hassle. Enter Current Boutique, a local consigment boutuique who posts some of their recent acquisitions online.
These Christian Louboutin wedges are calling my name! Maybe I’ll take a trip to their Logan Circle location and do some shopping at an actual brick and mortar store? (Quelle horreur.)
Frankly, I think it’s a great idea for consignment shops to post photos of their wares online. It lures people into the shop and helps you get a feel for what else you might find when you visit. So is Current the only local shop that’s gotten into the act or do you ladies know of more forward-looking shops?
