June 2012

 This is such a great time of year in that it seems like everything, everywhere is on Sale!  Of course, the savings that can be had at resale and consignment shops top even the big department stores deep discounts...after all, if our prices are 1/3 to 1/2 off originally priced items from the "Designer Stores" (think Saks, Neiman Marcus, Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton etc.), imagine the value and savings for shoppers when WE discount OUR prices by 10% to 50%!


We are pleased to announce that we are currently reducing our inventory with the most incredible sales all year! Everything in the shop is discounted from 10% to 50% and the values are unbelievable! Even our fine jewelry collections are being offered at far below our normal prices.


Have you been lusting after that Bottega handbag, Chanel shoes, David Webb ring or Roberto Cavalli dress that is perfect for you? Well, come on in...or shop online and give us a call...discounts from the web must be done by phone or in person. FYI, we will be discounting everything through the month of June...and July if anything is left!

We've said it for the past several years, but for those who may not have heard, if you are not familiar with the beautiful designs of Elana Kattan, you are in for a big treat! We have just received our extensive summer collection of dresses, jackets and shawls from this prolific and talented designer.


Originally from Israel, Elana studied in Tel-Aviv, Paris and New York and

Swaying Into Summer With Elana Kattan

currently designs and manufactures her beautiful collection in Miami (yes, these creations are "Made In America"). The unique prints and patterns of her marvelous fabrics are imported from Europe, especially Italy and France and, if one was to guess a comparable label, the name Jean Paul Gaultier most likely would come to mind! Known for the wonderful fit and "fine hand", these light-weight knit and lace day and evening dresses, skirts, tops, jackets and wraps showcase Elana's attention to design, construction and detail.


Perfect for traveling, everything is hand or machine washable; this unsurpassed collection is made for any casual, cocktail or dressy event! We have just received our biggest shipment ever and these bright and delightful summer treasures are flying off the racks. Hurry in!

From large conches and fossil sand dollars, to perfect little strawberry shell earrings and bronze coral (only found off the Hawaiian Islands, these treasures will brighten up any ensemble!


Kirsten Braden

Every day at Classic Collections we have amazing and talented women walk through our doors as both consignors and customers. As a way to celebrate these wonderful relationships that have blossomed into friendships, we are starting a new monthly column profiling our clients' accomplishments.


To launch this new section we would like to introduce Kirsten Braden. Kirsten has been a loyal Classic Collections client and consigner for many years. "It makes me feel less guilty buying a high-end designer outfit, when I know I can give it to Sally and recoup some of the cost. The trouble is I always come out with an irresistible piece I didn't walk in with," laughs Kirsten.


Originally from London, England, Kirsten was a TV Director in Atlanta before moving to Palm Beach six years ago where she homeschools her two children with her husband Jim, and likes to play polo in her spare time. Kirsten is very active on the charitable scene and was Creative Director for the annual fundraiser, "Polo With Pedro" which benefits the YMCA. She is also on the board of the Vita Nova Foundation which mentors local post-foster system adolescents.


This dynamic woman recently started an exciting new business partnering with the female doctors who created the world famous Proactiv Solution for treating problem skin. Kirsten says, "now that I am older and through sports spend time in the Florida sun, my skin suffers from another issue-aging. These marvelous physicians have created a clinically proven Anti-Age line called Rodan and Fields. "After I saw the dramatic results on my face, I just HAD to get involved," says Kirsten. The Classic Collection team has tried these products with great success and will be carrying these amazing products in our store in the fall! 


Kirsten will be teaming up with Classic Collections to host some elegant cocktail parties to make sure we all look our best for the upcoming social season. But if you can't wait that long, do not fret, here is Kirsten's contact information:
