Women's designer clothes for less in West Chester
WEST CHESTER, Pa. - May 19, 2010 (WPVI) -- It doesn't take long to spot the bargains at Christine's Consignment Boutique in West Chester, Pa.
Among the items we spotted: A new-with tags Lilly Pulitzer skirt -- on a whole rack of Lilly clothes -- for $34.99, Coach shoes for $49, Juicy Couture shorts -- with the $158 price tag on them -- for $32, along with an Escada skirt for $89 and a DKNY skirt for $59.
But it's easy to see why this shop has been in business for 16 years... And recently had to move to a bigger storefront.
"Customers are looking for the labels that they love, but can't necessarity afford, in the retail world," says owner Christine Hasen.
There's an entire rack of clothes from Chico's, another full of designer jeans from names like Seven and Lucky, and racks of shoes, including Louboutins and other designer names.
Shoppers who discover Christine's come back again and again.
Marcia Carnes of Downingtown, Pa., says not usually a shopper, but "I do like coming in here. I don't like paying retail prices but the stuff they have in the store here is always in really great shape. A lot of times, it has the original tags on it."
Valerie Clemens of West Chester, Pa., says, "I found some real fancy outfits, that I really love, like black evening wear and jewelry. I love her jewelry."
Christine's is located at 105 Westtown Road in West Chester, Pa. The phone number is 610-692-9375. Click here for their website.
