Give the gift this holiday season of giving back to the environment by shopping at your local high end consignment or resale boutique! We are not talking about the nearest Goodwill. Smaller locally owned consignment shops can be found in many cities and towns. They are often hidden gems full of beautiful items and discounted prices. The best part about these places is that they are usually owned by actual members of the community, and your money is going to a real family who needs your support. The problem is most people can’t imagine what they could buy at a resale shop that they could gift. Problem solved here is a Haute Holiday Gift Guide of 3 types of items you could find currently at my consignment boutique Haute Exchange in Dripping Springs Texas, and most resale shops across the United States.
There is no present in the world like the gift of presence. This idea is inspired by the collection of gemstones and crystals found throughout our boutique. Everything from raw crystal jewelry to actual stones made to bless the receiver with something extraordinary. For example Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification. You can find it in our precious gems and crystal collections. There are several jewelry items made with Rose Quartz that opens the heart and restores trust and harmony in relationships. It can be even more effective when worn close to the skin. Crystals make beautiful, and special gifts that can bring so much more to those who receive them.
Coming In Clutch
This year mini bags and purses have been IN STYLE. That includes the classic clutch. High end resale is the perfect place to find usually expensive and very beautiful purses. We have a collection of amazing clutches in the shop ready for their forever home under your tree. Every young woman needs the perfect clutch for a special occasion. I know you have found yourself dressed to impress suddenly realizing you were about to carry your large everyday bag into a formal event, and completely clash your outfit.
The Millennial Crop
The youngsters these days seem to have skipped their awkward phase. For the first time we are seeing a younger generation make the crop top look effortlessly cool, and not completely hoochie. These ladies have been pairing their crops with boyfriend jeans, and high waisted bottoms, and they are looking very high fashion. Most high end resale boutiques are rich with vintage wear and really cute crop tops. Pick up a few for the millennial in your life, and maybe a little something for you too.
These are just 3 simple examples of fun gifts you can find for loved ones in a consignment shop near you. There are so many more treasures to be found hiding between the racks at your local resale boutique. Think winter boots, fashion accessories, amazing scarves, vintage, and silk! As a perk my shop offers free personal shopping experiences, and a glass of wine or Topo Chico while you browse. Take advantage of sweet little towns all over offering unique and fun finds this holiday season, and support a local business.
