Best All-Around Women’s Consignment Shop in Baltimore
Vogue Revisited, 4002 Roland Avenue, 410-235-4140
This large award-winning consignment shop has an immense and well sorted selection of women’s clothing, including a high end designer section. For the L.L. Bean and Coldwater Creek crowd, there are plenty of choices as well. Stock remains fresh and trendy, as the owners will not accept anything over three years old. A favorite among many Baltimore ladies, scores include adorable black leather boots for $20 and a Coach backpack for $15. A silk skirt from the current Sundance catalog appeared at 85 % off retail. And yes, that is a Prada purse behind the counter.
Best Businesswear Consignment Shop in Baltimore
Newbury and Smith, 5708 Newbury Street, 410-542-4450
For the businesswoman, this consignment shop in the heart of Mount Washington has a great selection of office wear. Referring to themselves as a “Sophisticated Women’s Consignment Store,” the selection of higher end women’s suits and blouses should not be missed. For a real bargain, check out the “Back Room” discounts, occasionally displayed on a rack out front in seasonable weather.
Best New Consignment Shop in Baltimore
Re Deux, 5002 Lawndale Road, 410-323-2140
