Plato’s Closet. Deptford, NJ.

Okay, I love Plato’s Closet.

This was my first time inside the store and I’m already obsessed. First of all, it is huge. I am talking warehouse huge. And there are clothes covering every inch of the store—incredible. In addition to the heart-stopping initial reaction, I was also thrilled with the quality of the merchandise. There are racks upon racks of different brands for men, women, and kids—all at up to 70% off mall retail prices! The store is organized by gender and then by type of clothing. There are also various sections featuring new arrivals from specific stores such as, Forever21, Urban Outfitters, Express, American Eagle, and Juicy Couture.

Because the store is so big, I had to prioritize. I decided to continue the spring break hunt as to not become overwhelmed by the massive amount of clothing in the store. I would definitely recommend setting aside a solid chunk of time if you plan on coming to Plato’s Closet, you’ll need it. My first stop was the sun dress rack, then the skirts and finally the summer blouses. I was amazed at how many items still had the original retail tags on them!

Plato’s Closet is always buying items, so whenever you feel like your closet is becoming a little cramped head on over! While the retail associate looks through your items you are free to shop around the store. The buyer will then create an offer for you based on style, condition, brand, and the store’s current stock level. Typically the items they buy have been in retail stores within the past 12 to 18 months and are current styles still seen in the mall. If you accept their offer you will be on your way with some extra cash and maybe a chic new outfit or two! I shopped at Plato’s Closet in Deptford, NJ, but there is also another location nearby in Maple Shade, NJ. Each location has its own personal site that they update when they have clearance sales, new items available, etc.

I made 3 trips to the fitting room, each time I had about two gigantic armfuls of clothing with me. After a very strict process of elimination I narrowed my findings down to these five items:

A yellow, high-waisted skirt by Four Stars, $7.

Patterned mini skirt by Billabong, $10.

 

Floral short sleeve dress by Kimchi and Blue, $16.

Plaid Sun dress by Charlotte Russe, $7.

Floral Ruffle Sun dress by Mimi Chica, $9.

Obviously, the prices are amazing and there is a nice variety of clothes. Because I am rather indecisive, I ended up leaving with only three items. A chambray romper from Target, the plaid sun dress from Charlotte Russe, and an orange tank from Free People that I plan to wear as a beach cover up.

Have you ever been to Plato’s Closet? What did you buy/sell?

Greene Street Consignment Shop

“recycling. reinvented.”

The first consignment shop featured on the blog is Green Street Consignment Shop. Greene Street Consignment has six different locations around Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. I recently went consigning at their South Street shop in Philadelphia. I love this particular store because the setup makes for such easy shopping, the merchandise is organized on circular displays and each holds a specific item of clothing. Cashmere sweaters are on one rack, blazers on another, and so on. There is even a shoe section with gently worn (or not worn at all!) pumps, sneakers, boots, and sandals. In addition to clothing and shoes, Greene Street carries handbags, scarves, belts, and jewelry.

Some brands on sale this week at Greene Street Consignment were: Ann Taylor Loft, Neiman Marcus Cashmere, Bebe, Seven For All Mankind, J Brand Jeans (for only $28!), Paige Premium Denim ($32), Citizens of Humanity, Arden B, Free People, and BDG.

If you are looking to consign some of your old clothes, there is an associate in the back of the store who is willing to help you do so. You do not need an appointment and there is no yearly fee to sell your clothes at Greene Street! The associate simply looks through your items to make sure they follow the guidelines and hands you a receipt. Your items remain in the store for 60 days and when they sell you will receive a 40% commission check in the mail. If your items do not sell you may pick up the items at the end of the 60 day period. It really is that easy!

I left Greene Street Consignment Shop with an adorable green Nine West trench coat, a Free People embellished sweater, two pairs of J Brand Jeans, and my favorite purchase of the day—a Hero&Leander floral blouse (pictured below). I can not wait to wear my new purchases now that the weather is warmer!

Greene Street Consignment Shop is located 700 South Street Philadelphia, PA 19147.

Their hours are Monday – Wednesday: 11 – 7, Thursday: 11-8, Friday – Saturday: 11 – 9, and Sunday: 11 – 7.
