Turn fashions into cash at Saige Consignment Boutique
Armani, Kate Spade, Trina Turk and Athleta. You might think we’re talking about a high-end department store, rather it’s a locally owned consignment boutique where new and gently used high-end fashions make their way into the store and maybe even home with you.
We visited Saige Consignment Boutique on Pelham Road in Greenville where we found a unique store where you can turn your fashions into cash and leave with a completely new look.
“We get fabulous items from ladies in Greenville, Spartanburg, Hendersonville, all over the Upstate and the foothills of North Carolina,” said Saige owner Gretchen Blakely Jacobs. “We also have a relationship with a few boutiques that send us items that are new, with tags. We largely get items that are unworn – new, with tags.”
Resale began thriving during the coronavirus pandemic, according to thredUP’s 2020 Resale Report. Resale grew 25 times faster than retail in 2019, with 62 million women buying secondhand products in 2019, compared to 65 million in 2018 and 44 million in 2017.
A consignment boutique, Saige accepts items Tuesday through Friday by appointment. Items must be clean and on a hangar. Better brands are preferred.
Items are placed on the Saige sales floor for 60 days. Consigners receive 40 percent of items sold and have the option to retrieve unsold items. Items not retrieved are donated to Safe Harbor on the consigner’s behalf.
