(WXYZ) — Whether you're looking for something retro and hip or designer duds without the designer price – consignment shops are a gold mine.
From newborns to adults, casual clothes to ballgowns, even home goods, consignment shops are good for the environment and good for your budget. We asked our 7 Action News viewers for the best consignment shops in metro Detroit for our Thursday's Top 7.
#7 BABY BABY PLUS MORE (NORTHVILLE)
Looking for big deals on the little one in your life? Baby Baby Plus More has clothes for babies, toddlers and teens, some brand new! I found some boys a couple pair of Old Navy jeans with the tags still on them. Baby Baby Plus More also carries baby furniture, toys and books. Baby Baby Plus More is 7th on our list.
#6 SECOND TIME AROUND (PLYMOUTH)
Second Time Around comes in 6th. It’s located in a historic home near downtown Plymouth. They carry gently used and even new, women’s clothes, shoes and handbags. For the best deal, shop their clearance items for 50 to 75% off their usual prices.
#5 TREASURE MART (ANN ARBOR)
Check out the Treasure Mart in Ann Arbor for timeless home goods. Anything from knick knacks to statement furniture pieces to entire rooms.
#4 PLATO’S CLOSET ALLEN PARK
#4th in our viewer poll is Plato’s Closet in Allen Park. They have a wide variety of clothes and active wear for teens and young adults. If you consign with them, they pay on the spot, too.
#3 SUM GIRLS BOUTIQUE (BERKLEY)
Sum Girls Boutique in Berkley is 3rd. Sum Girls says they’re the place to go for sustainable fashion and a whimsical mix of upscale trendy and timeless pieces for tween, teens and women.
#2 CONSIGNMENT CLOTHIERS (NORTHVILLE)
Our runner up is Consignment Clothiers in Northville.
Sally, a long time customer at Consignment Clothiers, loves the selection. “I always find something that I want to buy. Shoes, bags, handbags.”
Sally says she has tried other consignment shops but none measure up to Consignment Clothiers. “What keeps me coming back", Sally adds, "is just they always have something that's current, and they always have something for me that fits my budget”.
#1 BORO (DETROIT)
The top spot goes to Boro near Eastern Market. The small space is open and light and the fashions are curated. Shopper Jane agrees Boro is tops. “This is the best. It's the best.” Jane loves the selection and the space. She says, “It's lovely. It's like a boutique.”
We also met Lauren. She is a huge fan of the 70s. Everything from her clothes to her 70s Dodge Dart. Lauren say Boro has just the right blend of then and now. “So I like to mix my style so I always come down here to get my new stuff. Or my new old stuff.”
