What Brands We Love?
We mainly look for items that are in near perfect condition and super cute, we do have guidelines. We cannot allow the bargain brands, because let's face it, you can buy them brand new at rock bottom prices and we don't want to fill our sale with items that are easy enough to get for next to nothing, for example, Old Navy, Faded Glory, Alfred Dunner, Merona, JC Penny, Kohls, Walmart, Fashion Bug, Dressbarn, Forever 21, H&M and the like.
The desirable brands that we are most happy to see are Banana Republic, J Crew, Gap, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Flax, Eileen Fisher, Lily Pulitzer, Ralph Lauren, Talbots, Chicos, J Jill, Tribal, Hudson, Levis, Free People, Athleta, Anthropology, Cole Haan, Frye, J McLaughlin, Tory Burch, LL Bean, Vineyard Vines, North Face, Loft, Ann Taylor, Coach, Brahmin, Burberry, Dooney and Bourke, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and the like.
