A Global Powerhouse

Chrissy Sayare Helps Change an Industry

Chrissy Sayare has been all over the world to pick up unique high-end fashions from her clients, which she then offers for sale in the luxury resale store, To Be Continued (TBC), which she co-owns with her husband, Mitch.

“We focus on providing our clients with a luxury experience from the moment they contact us and throughout the entire process,” she explains. “We started this business believing in resale and believing that beautiful things have a lot of life in them. We wanted to become the reseller who the discerning consumer trusts and knows they can turn to, to both buy and sell.”

In fact, walking into TBC, which has four locations—two in Scottsdale, one in Dallas, and one in Los Angeles—is a luxury experience.

“We created a very lavish environment, so you’re a little bit confused that you’re in a resale shop,” Sayare says.

The store features items from designers such as Burberry, Chanel, Nanette Lepore, Hermès, YSL, Louis Vuitton, Zang Toi, and hundreds of others.

“I am surrounded by beautiful fashion every single day and I still get excited when product comes in the door,” she says. “And, I still get excited when something beautiful finds a new home with someone who loves it.”

Sayare’s journey with fashion began at a young age. She loved top brands and high fashion, but was on a very limited budget when growing up. This led to her becoming a “very smart shopper and a good bargain hunter.”

When she and Mitch moved to Paradise Valley six years ago, opening TBC was a way for her to combine her business background, entrepreneurial spirit, and love of fashion—and to meet her goal of making high fashion accessible to more fashion lovers.

“My belief is that luxury fashion should be accessible to more people than it has been in the past,” she explains.

The items she takes on consignment are highly edited, creating an inventory of merchandise that shoppers can count on.

Giving fashion a second life also has another purpose Sayare is proud of—it’s eco-friendly.

“TBC operates on a model that promotes this message to fashion lovers everywhere: Go ahead and buy what’s in season but be sure to bring it to us so we can resell it, sometimes over and over again, to other fashion lovers,” she explains. “We never discourage people from buying current collections, and there’s real virtue in that—it’s what makes the fashion economy go. Then when the first owner is done with that merchandise, they’re part of the circular economy of fashion because they’re putting what they’re no longer using back into the marketplace. Then, the people who buy from us are participating in sustainability because what they’re buying was already made. We’re recycling in a glamorous way.”

A big part of the TBC concept is also mixing emerging designers with these classics from the past, so TBC holds trunk shows throughout the year.

When she’s not curating fashion for TBC (TBCConsignment.com), Sayare spends her time making an impact in other ways. Locally, she and TBC annually sponsor the Arizona Costume Institute lunch, and she’s also involved with Phoenix Heart Ball, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, and more. Globally, she’s involved with the French Heritage Society; on the global advisory board of her alma mater, Babson College; and was recently named to Vogue100, a highly coveted international group of people identified by Vogue Magazine as having strong voices in the world of fashion and entertainment. 

She’s truly a global powerhouse.
