At her designer consignment and resale shop, effusive owner Maggie Chan isn’t interested in peddling what’s hip or trendy: Her focus is on classic, quality, and wearable clothing that sells. That means keeping her prices low (items top at around $300) and holding monthly sales (older merchandise is regularly marked down 20 to 50 percent). Chan’s modest, pastel-colored shop carries a combination of new and oh-so-gently used clothing and accessories acquired through fashion industry insiders—stylists, editors, models—so the collection comes mostly in small and sample sizes, typically sizes two through six. Despite the “resale” aspect, there’s not a retired pair of sweatpants or crusty Steve Madden platforms in the joint. Chan sells high-end dresses, coats, sweaters, skirts, shoes, purses, and accessories by well-known designers like Cynthia Rowley, agnès b., Prada, and Dolce & Gabana, intermingled with equally pristine vintage pieces, like cashmere turtlenecks from Bergdorf’s and Barney’s, and a small assortment of antique jewelry.Sales
