It’s hard to tell the difference between retail and resale when you go to an upscale boutique like Pippi’s Consignment Cottage, located at 1853 South 8th Street. Trendy, economical, and earth-friendly, resale boutiques are a fast-growing niche in retail. When Jessica Miller, owner of Fifi’s Fine Resale’s, advertised her business for sale, local resident Jamie Bernard was interested. Given her love of consignment, fashion, and business, she knew this was her next adventure. Jamie has an extensive background in event planning, networking, and public relations, and she is excited to use these skills in her new business.
Jamie vows to make Pippi’s a place where a woman can not only dress to impress for less, but also gather with other women for laughs and learning. Upcoming style and beauty workshops, educational talks, book signings, and women’s networking opportunities can be found on their website at www.pippiscottage.com or on their social media pages.
Pippi’s offers a vast selection of women’s clothing in sizes from XS to 3X. Top-selling brands include J. Jill, Chico’s, Ann Taylor, Anthropologie, and Eileen Fisher. They also carry an expansive selection of designer handbags including Gucci, Chanel, Jimmy Choo, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Vince Camuto, Coach, Michael Kors, Brahmin, Marc Jacobs, and many more. Pippi’s will soon include bridal, maternity, and men’s accessories. They accept consignments Monday through Thursday, and by appointment on Friday and Saturday.
