Consignment boutique specializes in high-end women’s clothing
Want to look like a million bucks for a fraction of the price?
Jeanette Mitten might be able to help.
The Red Deer woman recently opened Once Again Consignment Boutique, a downtown store that specializes in high-end women’s clothing.
This emphasis on quality distinguishes her shop from most other second-hand and consignment stores, said Mitten.
In addition to brand-name clothing, Once Again Consignment Boutique has a variety of new items, including shoes, boots, handbags, jewelry and belts.
Much of this came from clothing store Dirtbags Inc., which previously operated in the same 4801 51st Ave. premises.
“We have everything from funky jackets to jeans and dress pants,” said Mitten of her store.
A Red Deer resident since 1991, Mitten was born in Sweden and lived in Spain for a period of time.
She and her mother ran a second-hand women’s clothing store in Spain, and despite the fact Mitten has operated an equine business for most of her time in Canada, she retained fond memories of her earlier retail experience.
“I always wanted to get into it again, because I think it’s fun.
“You never know from one day to another what you’re going to get.”
So far, said Mitten, feedback from customers has been positive.
“It’s looking really good.”
Once Again Consignment Boutique is open Monday to Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Consignment items are accepted on an appointment basis, and Mitten encourages prospective sellers to visit her shop first to get a sense of the type of clothing it carries.
