I've shopped and consigned here. I have only found the ladies who work here helpful and fun. I appreciate their clothes selection, decor, and the extra cash. I have walked in looking for an outfit for a specific event and they took one on one time with me to find the perfect one!
It is a great find in Charleston!!
Rude, Disappointing. This store has a mean lady working there. The main woman who takes in the clothing acts very judgemental and is condescending. Why they keep her is a mystery to me. She's nasty in her manner and her speech. Items I bring are to their specifications of clean and on hangers etc. She still is beyond rude. Such a surprise for a customer service driven business. Go figure. Charleston now has many other consignment stores to shop. Also, I've seen some of my higher end items still in the store months later, but not with my consigment number and I never get any money when it sells. I will never shop nor consign there again. Who needs that kind of treatment?
Husbands take note. On a recent day out with my wife we happened upon the Reinvented store and were pleasantly surprised. This store has some great womens clothing. The sales people were very helpful and even the owner was in the store to assist us. I was able to sit and read magazines while my wife shopped happily away. It's a great place for a modern woman to get very fashionable clothing a very reasonable price. I am glad we found this store.
Big Picture In Perfect Focus.
This is like having the perfect gold frame filled with a picture of some of your favorite friends....Channel, Prada, St. John, J Crew.....
I have consigned with Reinvented and realize they are in touch with their customer base. This is why I continue to make money with the clothing I bring to them to consign, and I keep finding great stylish items put together with a modern flare.
The friendly fun environment is the bow on this wonderful gift in our fortunate area of Charleston.
I agree with the previous posts! I have taken a lot of nice (name brand clothing) in and have received minimal or no payments. I find it hard to believe that so little of my items were sold.
I also took in shorts (hey this is Charleston) & was told in no uncertain terms, they do NOT accept shorts (no, the super short short teenager wear - - longer walking & Bermuda style shorts - Talbots, Dillards). Their "clients" don't wear shorts - - well, I certainly do - - guess I can't be their client!
On the plus side, they do have some nice clothes there
Not worth it!.
Instead of selling a bunch of good, quality, boutique clothing on ebay, I decided to try my hand at the consignment store. Over 20 pieces and nothing sold. One dress had never been worn and had a retail price of $175.00. Other items included J. Crew, Banana Republic, and other well known quality clothes.
Yes, I took a chance by taking the clothes their, but NOTHING sold? Come on. I have a feeling they didn't even put all the clothes out and never called me to get the clothes they weren't taking on consignment.
And the woman that initially did the intake was on the snooty side. This store is nice to shop at, but I will never take a piece of my clothing there again. This is strictly for the overtly wealthy over the top rich people that don't need to worry about making a little extra cash.
This was a complete waste of time, energy, clothing and money.
Horrible, Disrespectful, RUDE!. After eating lunch at an Indian Restaurant in West Ashley a mural caught my eye on the side of a consignment store. I went in to the Reinvented consignment shop with my mother who was visitting for a few weeks. Initially we were surprised by the whimsical decor and amounts of clothing in the store. My mother suggested that I bring my clothing in after cleaning my closet. I generally donate to goodwill, but thought, why not! I have good taste in clothes and prefer clothing from Talbots, Anne Taylor, Banana Republic, Dillards, J Crew, etc. After cleaning out my closet, getting ready for the new fall selections I decided to bring my clothes to Reinvented. These were nice clothes, and I had two seperate bags for goodwill that I deemed unacceptable for an "Upscale" consignment shop. Before lugging the 6 bags of clothing/purses and shoes, I went into the shop and asked if they were currently taking consignments. The worker said yes, but looked at me as if I was some type of trash. I was dressed casually, but it was about 90 degrees that day, and I didn't think I looked that bad! I thought, whatever! I wasn't sure what she was thinking, maybe she was having a bad day. So, My husband and I carried the bags in and she told me too set them up on the counter. I did and she looked at us as if we had just set a bunch of garbage before her. She did not look at any of my clothes, which where neatly folded in paper shopping bags (Carolina Girl's bags mostly because my mother and I had done some damage with the Vera bags and Brighton Jewelery!) The worker than rudely stated that all clothes needed to be cleaned, as if!!!!!!!!! My clothes were cleaned, with few to no wrinkles. I was so shocked and confused by her treatment I wasn't sure how to react. I had never consigned before, but I wasn't expecting this! My husband was also very unsettled by this woman and her rudeness. Was she insulting us? and Why??? We would never bring some dirty clothes...and here I had taken the time to go to Reiunvented thinking that they were more tasteful than goodwill.Ha! So, my husband convinced me to stop at one other consignment shop before heading to goodwill, although I was hesitant. I felt humiliated by the beast of a woman at Reinvented especially because I couldn't think of anything to say to her at the moment. Ya know, when you wish you had some quick witted response and you think of a million things you should have said afterword, but not in the moment that you really need it? Anyway, to make a long story a bit shorter, we went to Consign Charleston on Wappoo Road, were the worker was completely gracious and charming, and I will continue to bring my clothes there to consign. Overall, Reinvented is classless, tasteless and useless.
