Our vision for a different kind of resale shopping experience sets you apart. You will be proud to own a beautifully designed store, resembling private retail boutiques. One question our franchise store owners hear frequently from customers who mistake us for a typical retail boutique is: “Do you have this in my size?” For us, this is a question we love to hear! It tells us we are achieving our goal of maintaining quality products, a well-curated inventory, and beautiful, chic locations that exceed shoppers’ expectations.
