BEST OF THE BEST
A star studded boutique in the “high end” consignment business in Palm Beach, Classic Collections continues to make a major splash and has garnered a well-deserved reputation as the premier designer and fashion re-sale boutique in this affluent town.Showcasing the “Best of the Best”, Classic Collections only accepts luxury designer womens apparel, handbags, shoes, accessories, costume and fine jewelry that has been “momentarily worn” or is brand new. With the extremely high level of sophistication, wealth and taste that defines the Palm Beach area market, our consignors have allowed us to offer a selection of merchandise that is simply unparalleled in the re-sale industry.
PASSION FOR FASHION
You either have a “Passion for Fashion” or you don’t. In Palm Beach, we are extremely fortunate to have Consignors with exquisite taste who are avid collectors of designer and couture clothing, handbags, shoes, accessories and jewels. These sophisticated, discerning people bring Classic Collections items from around the world that reflect their “passion for fashion” and their eye for extraordinary, unique or simply impeccably hand-made treasures.
THE FUN OF THE HUNT
Classic Collections has an abundant and continuous flow of top-quality merchandise from our Consignors in the Palm Beach, Miami, Boca Raton and Palm Beach Gardens are communities, as well as those locations that many of these fashionable people enjoy during the summer season. As our reputation spreads, we have made many new consignor friends through the USA and Europe. With this ever-growing world-wide connection, the “Hunt” becomes even sweeter as we offer merchandise not found in conventional re-sale shops.
RESALE THRIVES IN ANY ECONOMY
According to NARTS (National Association of Resale and Thrift Shops), the resale industry is one of the few recession proof segments of the retail business. In fact, Adele Meyer, Executive director of NARTS says, “Not only does the resale industry survive during economic slowdowns, but it grows and thrives.” The appeal is two-fold, consumers are attracted to buying quality merchandise at a fraction of the original cost and there is also a financial incentive to sell, consign or donate unused or unwanted items. With the economy posing a challenge and the fact that many people have an overabundance of possessions, savvy SHOPPERS and SELLERS are realizing a real need to recycle. Clearly, the industry offers the best of both worlds for customers, the chance to shop and save, and for consignors the opportunity to turn no longer needed articles into cash!
