The Best of South Florida: Best Consignment Shop
Lets be honest, no woman.. or man for that matter can resist a really juicy deal. So if you're looking for name brands at a bargain price then grab your wallet. Tonight, our viewers have located The Best Consignment Stores In South Florida.
(WSVN) -- The latest trends. The coolest fashions.
If you're looking to spend only a few dollars on top designers then consignment stores are the way to go.
Sure, the some of the clothing may be second hand, but the prices are first rate.
"Like a Tommy Hilfiger shirt. Here I would sell it for about 8-dollars. In the store it sells for 40-dollars."
So where are the best bargains to be found in South Florida?
In 3rd Place, try Happy Cash in Hialeah.
The owner says, "We've been in business since 1981 and we serve this community."
What they serve is a treasure chest of trinkets.
Happy Cash is technically a pawn shop.
But for our viewers, we'll call it a consignment shop for jewelry
"We have very good deals."
Rings....heavy gold bracelets....even top shelf watches at bottom shelf prices.
"People that know what they want they come here and they make a deal. And we make a deal all the time."
Deals are always delivered at our Second Place Winner.....Miami Twice......a consignment store with a high profile clientel.
The owner Miami Twice says, "At the risk of name dropping."
"Matt Dillon who's a very big vintage Hawaiian collector and fell in love with the store."
"He just took his shirt off in front of the store and one of our employees almost fainted because she's a big big fan."
And you'll be a big fan of all the vintage purses, jewelry, shoes, and hats.
"What we like to call Jackie Onassis 1960's wear. Made popular by her."
But remember, this place isn't just about what you can put on... it's also about what you can take off.
But if you really want to load up your car with deals ..... our viewers say the Number One Place to go is Again And Again Consignments on Old Cutler Road.
A shopper at Again and Again Consignment says, "It's a lot of fun, and there's so much here to enjoy."
Another shopper adds, "I always consider it like a garage sale that air conditioned."
Make that a super-sized garage sale.
Wall to wall -- floor to ceiling, there's clothes ... toys, baby items .... and more.
The owner says, "I'm a consignment junkie. If I get a day off. I'm at another consignment shop."
But where else can you find a consignment shop with a personal shopper.
The owner adds, "If I don't have it I'll find it for you. Or I will look around and try to locate it."
So if your frugal when it comes to fashion, trust us when we say one trip and you'll go back again and again.
"It is a great way to save money and get nice items just like you would if you were in a department store."
Next week maybe our juiciest topic yet.
We'll have the votes for South Florida's Best Burger.
Also, don't forget to vote for South Florida's Best Seafood.
