New and Almost New
This tiny consignment and resale shop packs a lot of designer punch. Owner Maggie Chan has stocked the NoLIta space with gently used garments from some of the most revered names in fashion—goods acquired from a tight circle of friends in the industry. The "new" in the name refers mainly to the selection of never-been-worn jeans plucked from New York City showrooms. But jeans will likely be the most casual item you encounter at the store, whose offerings center around elegant above-the-knee dresses, structured blazers and flirty blouses.
What's in store: Lanvin and Giorgio Armani cocktail numbers, Marc Jacobs tops, Chanel and Manolo Blahnik shoes, Gaultier bags, plus Prada, Alice & Olivia, Theory, Tory Burch and Diane von Furstenberg.
Price range: The majority of goods fall in the $20 to $300 range, with sale items available year-round.
