FSB Retailer Spotlight: The Stash Consigment Online Store

I am a fan of consignment shops but they usually present one of two problems: the selection is hit or miss or it’s not really as much of a bargain as it should be. As someone who believes that you should be able to have style at any price point, it is my civic duty as a fellow fashion enthusiast to tell you all about The Stash Consigment.

The brainchild of the fabulous Élan Kaplan Barrish, this true fashion lover started hosting parties that provided the ultimate consignment experience: sip and shop fabulous designer pieces in a private and chic environment where you can purchase gently used or never worn designer pieces at well below retail. Élan’s reputation for cocktails mixed with expertly-curated couture has made her the woman to see among fashionable New Yorkers who need to quietly sell brilliant designer pieces and the fashion-but-budget-savvy women who desire to purchase these items for a mere fraction of the cost.

Not in the New York City area to attend one of these genius word-of-mouth parties? Grab your own cocktail and throw a party for yourself because Élan’s brilliant collection of designer goods is now available online at The Stash Consignment’s new online store. Let me whisper some of the designers that are regularly available: Peter Som, Marni, Chanel, Hermès, YSL, Missoni, Prada, Thakoon, Chloè, Brian Atwood, and Rachel Roy are just some of the items you’ll see posted. Items are photographed and posted when they come in, so check back often. Those Christian Louboutins or that Devi Kroell bag might there right now, but as with any other consignment sale, she who hesitates might lose out, so act fast.

These two pieces featured at the top of the post are just a few of the offerings on this amazing site. The Devi Kroell Pink Gold Python Bag is $950 (full retail is around $2700) and this gorgeous J. Mendel Taupe Suede and Pailettes Silk Lined Jacket is just $450, which is a steal for this kind of piece. Looking to start small? How about a pair of very current Christian Dior Leather Booties for $150? Yep, the site is just that great.

I almost didn’t want to tell you about this fantastic little find but when you see photos of me in gorgeous couture with that particular sparkle in my eye, now you know where I got my killer outfit. Let’s keep this just between us, shall we? 😉
