I was recently given the opportunity to interview Nancy, the owner of a new online designer consignment shop, Covet Shop, which is based out of New York City. While the items sold at Covet Shop are very high end, for some of you, it may be a good way to either save some money on designer goods, or make a little money off of designer goods you have sitting in your own closet.
1. When did you first come up with the idea for an online designer consignment shop?
I love to vintage shop and thrive off finding amazing one-off pieces at a
great price! We saw an opportunity to create an online consignment
boutique so sellers could get back some of their original investments and
buyers could find gems at far below retail price. Being online allows us
to reach sellers and buyers all over, not just in the local market.
2. Please describe the type of lady you see shopping at Covet Shop.
The type of women that shops with us loves and appreciates the beauty of fashion. She is a savvy shopper who knows that you don’t have to pay retail for designer goods.
3. If people are interested in selling their items on Covet Shop, what are some good guidelines to help their item get listed?
We require that items must be 100% authentic, seasonal and in perfect condition. Of course they must be designer.
4. What brands are you looking for?
Here is a list of brands we covet: Balenciaga, Bottega
Veneta, Brian Atwood, Burberry, Catherine Malandrino, Celine, Chanel,
