Manhattan – Lower East Side
168 Ludlow St between E Houston and Stanton Sts
After Alice Chan got laid off as a retail and product developer in the fashion industry she raided her closet and rallied her ex-coworkers and fashionista friends to help her stock the newest LES consignment shop, PPF Consignment. The store is definitely recession-friendly with a customer rewards program (spend an accumulative $1000, get $100 off your next purchase) or bring bag the reusable shopping bags sold in the store for $9 to get 9% off whatever you buy. And there will be plenty that you'll want to spend dough on, such as a Chloe shoulder bag, which is black and adorned with zippers, $499 (retails $800), an unworn size 10 Marc Jacobs dress with silver, grey, gold and black metallic stripes, size 2, $99 (normally $800), Christian Louboutin patent leather black and fuchsia 3.5 inch cork wedges, size 7.5, $399 (originally $850) and Devi Kroell size 8 beige python boots, $309 (were $3000).
