Consignment shopping leads to treasures for some

What have you found at consignment?

July 19, 2011|By Andrea K. Walker

I wrote today about Uptown Cheapskate -  a new consignment chain opening in the area.

The store's owners promise high-end finds at bargain prices. The opening comes as people continue to watch their cash. They still want to look good, but not pay a pretty price for it.

The consignment business is booming. In Baltimore there are at least 30.

I've had friends nab designer bags and shoes for as much as 75 percent less then they once retailed for.

What kind of finds have you all run across at consignment stores? What are your favorite stores?

We want to hear from you.
