New and Almost New
This tiny consignment and resale shop packs a lot of designer punch. Owner Maggie Chan has stocked the Little Italy 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 on elegant above-the-knee dresses, structured blazers and flirty blouses. Giorgio Armani, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Diane von Furstenberg are just some of the brands stocked in store. The majority of goods fall in the $20 to $300 range (though some can be double that), with sale items available year-round.
