Went to see Yolanta yesterday. As usual beautiful clothes and I left with a Tahari jacket for $15 and a gorgeous 3/4 length sleeve Talbots classic sweater for 13 bucks. This adds to my extensive collection of clothes since she opened the store. Always a great time and she knows my taste inside and out!
Viva Helmut Lang ! Consign Connection, now I am ready to party tonight in my stunning brand new Helmut Lang, black, silk, evening dress. Timeless item that every girl should have in her closet, I believe. It surpassed my wildest expectations. Yes, I bought great pieces here in the past such as a leather jacket, R&R designer jeans, Gucci hobo bag. MY shopping experience at C.C. I would describe as nothing less than amazament mixed with a fulfilling sense of scoring a bargain. This time however a brand new H.L. dress with an original ticket price of $879 purchased for $299 opened a new horizon for me and excitment of gaining a life senority at this little, fiendly operated second hand shop. I must say I am lucky having the store within walking distance. Fashionistas, checking this place out is a must. If I would change anything, I wish the merchandise was sorted by size rather than color group.
The real deal !!
As a frequent visitor from Houston I am constantly in search of great designer deals for my wife while shopping in NYC. (Houston might b 4th largest city in USA - but nothing can compete with selection in Big Apple) So I rely on the web - which led me to this little shop in Brooklyn.
A couple years ago at the same time of the year (Christmas Season) I found a beautiful Christian Dior wallet for my wife. I think I paid around $ 180 for it. It was brand new and authentic and she had no clue I didn't pay the full price fot it.
So this year I went in search of a her Christmas gift - a Chanel Bag. I called Consign Connection - and she only had one black evening Chanel Bag in satin with cristal Chanel logo in front.
Sleek and sophisticated. We attend many parties during the year due to my job.
I thought might be perfect choice for her.
Anxioius - I took a train from the city to retreve my find. It came with an original box and papers - costing only $ 899. (half retail!)
Back in Texas, my wife was over the top - how did my husband actually find what I wanted.
So Consign connection made two dreams come true - my wallet and wife were both very - very happy.
Thanks Consign Connection! Best Wishes in 2013 - see you in a few months (Again!)
a girls dream store. amazing finds. definitely a spot to check out
Great Deals in Bay Ridge – I discovered Consign Connection during summer and I have to say that I am so happy about it. Yolanta makes that place very special. She makes sure that if a person buys something there, she/he has to look great in it and walk out of the store happy. I bought Gucci sunglasses, and whenever I wear them I get many compliments. Another time I bought earrings and I have received many compliments as well. Thank you Yolanda and see you soon.
Friendly Neighborhood Service, Luxury Designer Gem!! – I'm a new customer, but I was recommended to Consign Connection by my older sister, who has been a customer for 10 years. The storefront always caught my eye--luxury bags and shoes, amazing displays of gracefully and tastefully clothes blended with vintage furniture.
Last week, I spotted a designer bag that I have always wanted. Wondering if I could even afford it, my sister urged me to go in and ask how much it cost. Well, I was firstly impressed by the owner Yolanta, who started speaking to my sister in English and an hour later, they conversation ended in Italian. SO COOL. Anyways, when the topic of money came up, I was shocked at how reasonably the bag was priced AND that they offered LAYAWAY!!!!! I was apprehensive to buy the bag at first, but she allowed me to leave a small deposit, STRONGLY encouraging me to do so before Bay Ridge's famous 3rd Ave Festival, in which women flock the neighborhood, from near and far, hoping to get amazing shopping deals. By putting a little money down each week towards my goal...I could rest assured that My DREAM bag would be mine in only 1 month! What do you know, I came back after the festival, and there was a line of 10 women BEGGING for MY bag. But she honored her commitment, and she turned them down knowing I would be a customer for life. I am now the proud owner of a REAL Louis Vuitton bucket bag!!!! I've received so many compliments on the quality of the product.
I attribute the success of the store to the EXCELLENT Customer Service!!! Yolanta, the owner, is a very strong woman. She is very friendly and charming, but when it comes down to the retail aspect of the business---she is known for being very selective about which items she will accept for consignment. Out of the 20 items I showed her, only 4 made the cut. She will not accept "knock-off" bags made of faux leather, because she wants her business to represent genuine, high-end style at an affordable price! Futhermore, she would only sell something that she would wear herself---now THAT is something I look for in a small business owner!
Yolanta spent an hour with me talking about the product, how this investment would serve me for the rest of my life, how the shape was the right fit for my personal style (*as compared to the other 2 Louis Vuitton bags in the window). Yolanta is such a chic woman--straight from Rome, Italy--you can tell she knows a thing or two about fashion. She's been in the industry for YEARS! I trust her opinion completely!!!! She is fabulous!!!!!!!!
Not a single negative thing comes to mind when I think of this place. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
Happy Shopping... :)
brooklyn secret! Let this be your "GO TO" shop! – I have been a loyal customer of Consign Connection for a few years. The owner, Yolanta, is an incredible women who always has the stop stocked with beautiful trendy items and she also gives impeccable style advice. This is my go to store, even though I live minutes from Century 21. I just bought a beautiful Scoop NYC suit for Easter and a satin dress for a wedding. Her prices are very reasonable and the personal touch is worth making this shop your go-to store. Yolanta always has pieces in mind for me when I visit her store. Whenever out of town guests visit, I always bring them to this lovely boutique.
FABULOUS, YOU WILL ALWAYS FIND SOMETHING – SO EXCITED I found this shop. Just stumbled in just for a look see and walked out with paycheck spent. Such great clothes and accessories as well. I want to go again next week and I do not live in the neighborhood. I am now a faithful customer. The owner Jolanta is such a great person. Her eye for design is exceptional. All labels here. Also range of sizes. Wonderful Karma.
I am afraid this store is going to make me go broke. I can not stress enough how lovely Jolanta is and her finds.
I can not wait for my next foray here which will be sooner than later. LOVE LOVE LOVE
2nd-hand clothing & accesories for women – The owner has a good eye for fashion. The clothing there is gentaly used with affordable price. You will find styles sold in Soho and many european designers. Handbags are trendy and of good quality and jewleries are brand new from Italy. Love the shop.
Bay Ridge's "MUST GO" Shopping Mecca – A hidden gem, Consign Connection is the place to find insane Designer deals! The owner is friendly, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable in fashion trends both current and past.
It a true pleasure shopping at a store that's a true neighborhood staple. I constantly find amazing accessories at fraction of the cost. The store carries all the hottest trends, as well as true vintage finds. It is a "MUST" store to visit if you are on a budget and want Designer items at a fraction of the cost! You never know what you will find at Consign Connection, but be prepared to buy more than you expect, I can never seem to leave empty handed!
