A Must when you go to NYC - skip all your other shopping – I found Michael's based on a web search for Designer Handbags in NYC for an upcoming trip. I walked 20 blocks to get to Michaels in between work appointments and was definetely worth the trip!!!!! I have been looking on Rulala, Hautelook, and ebay for a good deal on a Marc Jacobs bag. I was prepared to buy a bag here. Well to my surpirse that were at least 4 bags that made my cut and I walked out of there with a beatitful Red sholder bag that was from Spring of 08. It was in great condition. The store was clean, well organized, and the sales people very helpful. I can see why this has been rated so high. I was very impressed. I did not buy anything else because of time, but they had great shoes, coats, Channel Suits, and so much in a small space. This is top-notch. I get to Consigments Store in my native Chicago and everything here is like a rumage sale for "Old Ladies." This is awesome and cannot wait to go back. There was another shop a few doors down and that smelled, the merchandise was not as good as Michaels. Don't waste your time and money paying full retail. Be prepared to buy, not for the borwser or it won't be there when you go back. If you love bags and got ripped on ebay and other sites this will be the place for you. I should have purchased 2 bags!!!!!
Amazing Finds! – I am not what you would consider consignment savvy. I have wanted to however add to my designer collection of clothes without paying full price. I recently stumbled upon Michael's the other day and I'm still glowing from my amazing Missoni, Gucci, Louboutin and Chanel finds. Most of my purchases still had the original tags. I'm now telling all my friends. It's simply a must before making the trek to crowded department stores or putting up with snooty sales associates at the designer boutiques. I really think that the sales girl who assisted me made all the difference as a consignment newbie. She didn't rush me, established immediate credibility and had excellent suggestions. She wasn't pushy about it either - just showed me how to shop consignment. I look forward to going back!
I have found the premier Consignment store in the US – My husband and I travel all the time and I love the hunt for a great bargain. I buy very expensive clothes and accessories but I would rather find a great deal in a consignment store. When we decided to go to Manhatten for Christmas I did a lot of research on line and saw great comments about Michaels. It was my first and only stop. The second I walked into this store I saw a gorgeous velvet black Chanel bag. Too die for. I did't have her hold it for me as I looked around and someone else purchased it, my fault. However I did find a Judith Leiber purse made of ostrich skin for 500.00 dollars, a steal. Also found some great Prada shoes. The shop is small with two floors, but arranged very thoughtfully and there are tons to choose from. The ladies in the shop were extremely kind and friendly, even though it was Christmas Eve and very busy. This is the best consignment store I have ever been in from San Francisco to Orlando. I will be back.
Must not be missed! – This place has become my one-stop-shopping. I have found everything I need here; shoes, handbags, fine jewelry, suits, dresses, etc. And they only carry the best; only high-end designers like Prada, Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors (my favorites)? they even have loads of Chanel and Hermes. I?ve been to many consignment stores and none compare to Michael?s. They just simply have the best stuff. I consign here too which has been well worth my while. Although I must stress, they really only take the best so don?t get offended when they turn down your favorite black cashmere sweater that has seen better days. Why, after coming here for so long, have I decided to write a review? Well, I recently got my wedding dress here (Rivini?they only carry high-end gowns as well) and felt the need to share with everyone that this place must not be missed.
Great Customer Service, Fantastic Finds – Michael's Consignment shop was a dream come true - from the thoughtful and helpful service to the array and quality of the merchandise, I can't recommend this place enough. As someone who was not thrilled at the prospect of trying on wedding gowns, and had heard the NYC bridal salon horror stories from friends, I can confidently say that everyone at Michael's made the experience a positive one, even fun!
Their helpful team showed me the (deeply discounted - but flawless) couture dresses, (Carolina Herrera, Badgley Mischka, Vera Wang and more) and also helped with getting different ideas for shoes, wraps, purse etc. (they have it all!). Extremely polite and attentive, the team took great care of me - I am so glad I went here first and found the wedding dress of my dreams.
I will definitely return to the shop, now that I know they carry the best designers for work and evening attire (Chanel, Diane Von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, Prada and more). If you are someone who likes the good stuff and pride yourself on your shopping skills ? Michaels Consignment shop is the place for you!
Best Shop for Designer Bags – This is the place to come for a great selection of designer bags from lower priced like Coach all the way to Hermes. They also have a nice shoe selection, not large but Manolos and Choos in new condition. The people who work there were nice and helpfull too. The only thing bad I have to say is that some things are not prices half off or more like they say. I looked at a Chanel wallet that I know is $575 retail and it was priced at $395, a $180 savings but not close to half off. Also some of the bags are more worn then others. Overall it is worth the trip to check it out everyonce and a while.
Avoid this place if you can!!! – I am a first-time bride with no girlie skills. I want a hassle free wedding just like the next bride. I was told that Michael's is a great little shop to get what you need. However, you will not get this at Michael's. I called them to make an appointment - which they said I did not have to do. I asked what time I could be there and the young woman said the latest was 4:30 to try on dresses. When I got there (4:30 pm), they informed me that they would be closing early (5 pm), however, I could go up to the bridal salon. When I got upstairs, the attendant ignored me until I pulled out two dresses. She then says I can not try them on, they are closing and I have to put them back! First, the selection was very small. Second most were dirty. You can find designer dresses, but the quality of the dresses is horrific. The shop is small, stale, and dirty. I decided to speak with the manager and let her know that they should be more considerate to their customers - especially new brides that HATE doing wedding stuff. My bridesmaids got there at 4:45, I was waiting outside already wishing to elope in Vegas. Do not go there. It is a true waste of time.
Couture for the cost-conscious, sweater-sets for the pink-slipped. – The Scene
Upper East Side ladies and downtown divas alike sell their threads here, and the world comes to claim them. For more than 45 years, this upscale consignment shop has been an institution for fashionistas without trust funds and grandmothers with great taste. Peer over the hangers and catch a glimpse of Gotham's fashion mosaic: Hasidic brides shop for Vera Wang wedding gowns while yuppie career girls cruise the cramped aisles for pants to wear at their next power lunch.
Hand-picked designer clothing and accessories, all once-loved and gently worn. While Michael's is best known for its bridal consignment (which closes at 5pm), the store is packed with everything from Chanel suits to Gucci Gowns, Hermes scarves and Prada shoes. You won't find a generic brand because every garment must have an authentic, prestigious label in order to hang on the racks.
Best place for a wedding dress! – My friend recommended this place as a resource for wedding dresses. They have a small bridal salon upstairs, stocked with beautiful designer dresses for a fraction of the original costs. The women are helpful, but never pushy and I found my dress almost right away. Best of all, it was only 500 dollars! Brides on a budget or just savvy brides in general should definitely check out Michael's. One tip though--if going to the bridal salon, it's open from 10-5 and if possible, try to avoid it on week-ends.
Fabulous finds! – I always manage to find something fabulous at the fraction of the price anywhere else. They carry the finest quality brands (Chanel, Hermes, Prada, Gucci, Dior, etc.) and have the latest styles. I highly recommend checking this store out. You will love it!
