I love designer resale boutiques for several reasons.  First, you will find outstanding deals in the right shops, and you can sell your designer and high end clothing and accessories and shoes and handbags in these resale boutiques on consignment.  I have featured designer resale boutiques for many years on my TV news reports and I am pleased to bring you more of these shoppers' secrets here.


Update October 2, 2014  Clothes Heaven in Old Town, Pasadena has been a favorite of many trendy shoppers since it opened in 1968.  This resale boutique specializes in higher-end, designer clothing but you will wind some of the better department store labels here as well.  There are actually fashion consultants ready to help you in this resale boutique that can assist you in making over your wardrobe at a fraction of retail prices with their selection of quality, gently worn clothing.  You will find styles by Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Christian Dior and more.  You will also find rare, limited edition handbags by Louis Vuitton.  You will be able to makeover your entire wardrobe, plus find accessories for finishing touches.  As you might expect, new selections arrive all the time so you want to stop in often.  Our Best Buys TV Show report is below.  Clothes Heaven is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am until 5pm.

Update May 28, 2014  Great Labels Designer Resale which has a very popular designer resale consignment store in Santa Monica has opened a second location on Ventura Boulevard in Studio City.  This second location is ideal for savvy shoppers and those wanting to sell their designer clothing and accessories who live in the San Fernando Valley including Sherman Oaks, Encino, Woodland Hills and also Pasadena and South Pasadena.  If you text your email address to 818-294-7054 you will receive 10% off your first purchase and you will be added to their email list to be notified of the newest deals and promotions.  Like the Santa Monica store, the Studio City store is loaded with top label merchandise in new or gently used condition.  Look for the bargain rack where you will find designer clothing for as little as $10 each piece.  There are dressing rooms so you can try on everything before you buy.  Our Best Buys TV Show report is below.

Update September 3, 2012  Great Labels, the designer resale boutique in Santa Monica, has some great fashion deals in the store.  Everything they sell is in "like new" condition and in fact, many items were never worn and still have the original store tags still attached.  Take a look at our newest TV show report below.  Remember, there are new arrivals every day and they do accept fashion clothing and jewelry and accessories and shoes for consignment sales.

Update August 12, 2011  Great Labels, the fashion resale boutique in Santa Monica, is having their end of summer sale with some prices cut as much as 75-percent.  Also check out some of their newest arrivals and fans of Hermes and Chanel will appreciate these.  A "Chanel Bubble Bag with Tags" has arrived in the boutique and it is priced at $1950.  And a "Vintage Hermes Kelly 1982" purse is now in the shop for $2750 or the best offer.  Read more about Great Labels below and watch our newest TV report below.  Remember, these are one-of-a-kind items in the store.


Update March 6, 2011  The Help Group's new boutique is called Silverlining, and this resale boutique is adjacent to its Culver City Campus.  Silverlining offers new and gently used fashionable and designer clothing, shoes and accessories for women, men and children and at the same time the boutique serves as an innovative vocational training center for students with social and communication disabilities including autism and other related disorders.  So when you shop here you are going to be doing a lot of good for others as well as for yourself because this invaluable work experience is designed to enable students to increase their level of independence and self-confidence and develop the life skills and tools they need to secure employment. 

The Silverlining resale boutique is at 12095 Washington Boulevard, Los Angeles 90066.  The store is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon until 7-PM.  Generous donations were made to the organization by American Rag, Disney/ABC Television Group, Ed Hardy Shoes and Pumpkinhead, as well as from individuals in the community.  The store has a lot of wonderful jewelry, handbags and designer labels. 

The Help Group serves children with special needs related to autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, mental retardation, abuse and emotional problems.


Great Labels is a designer resale boutique that has everything you'd want and expect in a designer resale store including the high end labels, clothing and shoes and accessories from the top stores in Beverly Hills, designer dresses and gowns that were worn only once on the red carpet for major TV and motion picture events, and discounts up to 95% off original prices.  When you walk into Great Labels you wouldn't even think that it's a resale consignment store because the fashions are new, the brand names are tops like Pucci and Gucci and Prada and Jimmy Choo and Chanel, and many of the garments were never worn and still have the original store tags attached.  Great Labels is at 1126 Wilshire Boulevard, Santa Monica.  Call (310) 451-2277 or go to for information on their special sales, designer labels and consignment selling.  We have visited this store several times to catch their best deals.  Watch our video reports below.

Update October 6, 2010   We just took a look at the fantastic deals at Great Labels for the fall and we weren't disappointed.  There were tremendous resale values and now there are more new items with the original store tags still attached.  You'll find Louis Vuitton limited edition handbags and the new, current styles for Gucci shoes and more.  And now, Great Labels has fashions for men and they are carrying designer jewelry including Rolex watches and diamond and 18 karat gold jewelry as well as Movado watches and other quality jewelry items.   Watch our newest report below.
