Out with the Old...

Every New Year, many people talk about cleaning up their eating habits, straightening out their lifestyle or something of that nature, but what about your closet? Even if our closet doesn't look like the one above, I'm sure you've accumulating tons of fashionable pieces over time, but what about those items that have been collecting dust? Why not turn those designer items into cash? No, I'm not talking about Ebay or scary craigslist? I'm talking, a just launched online retailer that specializes in the pre-owned market. concierges buy authentic designer items like handbags, shoes, jewelry and accessories, women's apparel and men's fashions for straight up cash! Not like some of the other re-sale boutiques, where you have to wait until your item sells to see a penny. Your merchandise is evaluated and authenticated up front and pays 50% of the item's value outright!

Clients can cash in their goods in 3 easy ways:
  1. Online
  2. By dropping off merchandise to their headquarters in Narberth, PA
  3. Arrange a personal house call and white glove closet consultation.

And Voila! Your closet will be ready to take on more fashionable clothing, shoes, and accessories for 2014! Speaking of which, if your hunting for a designer piece without paying a high price, is a great place to shop and full your closet with new favorites. I even spotted a vintage Gucci satchel bag for $70!

The COO of even has some smart tips to help you stay organized all year:
  • Sort clothing by style and/or color, so you know where you have a surplus.
  • Off-season items should take up prime closet real estate. Store them in cute baskets on high shelves, or in a separate storage space.
  • Invest in good hangers that are (1) thin, so you can hang more and (2) flocked so your clothes don't slip off.
  • Make use of drawer dividers to keep intimates neatly tucked away.
  • Hang jewelry, scarves, neckties, etc. on hooks along closet walls or the back of the closet door, so you can clearly see what accessories you have.
  • Display nice bags and heels on shelves in you closet. This will maximize closet space, and double as "wall art".
