What if I said you can buy Prada, Seven Jeans and Dior at reasonable prices? Well, you can! Second Time Around is a consignment store with locations blanketing Manhattan. The store I like to frequent is in the more upscale neighborhood of the Upper East Side. This is where all the people that shop on Madison Ave (check the Madison Avenue article) go to see what they can get for their once pricey purchases.
I’ve seen slightly used Prada heels with a price tag of $ 150 and Herve Leger dresses that usually retail for over $ 1,000, sell here for $ 400. From J. Crew and Tom Ford to Chanel and The Row, everything here is authentic and well below what you would expect to pay. All the items are practically brand new.
It’s a bit overwhelming to see wall of shoes and racks of coats, dresses and handbags, but worth it when you walk out with a high-end designer item for practically nothing. I love to see the shock on people’s faces when I tell them how much I payed for my fancy pair of shoes! Visit on the weekends where they usually have sales from 10% to 75% off already reduced prices.
