If you’re looking for high-style fashion items at a fraction of the cost, it is time to visit Vida Beale Consignment in West Chester. This boutique shop offers upscale clothing at prices your wallet will appreciate! 

Second-hand clothing has had a surge in popularity in recent years. Consignors want to turn their closets into profits and buyers want to purchase their high-end and upscale brands. It’s a great business model that has taken the country by storm and Vida Beale Owner Kirsten Gross is having a great time being one of the top-selling consignment shops in our region. 

When asked what makes Vida Beale stand out among others in our area, Kirsten stated, “Vida Beale Consignment is different from other consignment stores because we reach a broad range of ages. We cover several styles and brands of clothing and have a wide range of high-style, gently-used items. Our inventory is truly hard to beat among consignment stores. I’ve been told the store feels like a boutique with a vibe all its own. We also have a large selection of furniture and home furnishings.” 

This boutique feeling is evident as soon as you walk through the door. Clean, pristine items adorn the racks and walls of the shop with everything from high-end, upscale designer merchandise such as Prada, Chloe, Gucci, Lilly Pulitzer, Tory Burch, and even Golden Goose to everyday clothing brands such as Athleta, J. Crew, Gap, Anthropologie, and Free People. Everything is so well displayed that it’s easy to forget that you’re in a consignment shop and not a regular high-end clothing store. 

Kirsten definitely stays on top of the fashion trends each season and this fall she is predicting that the ‘80s style comeback will still be in full swing. “I expect the ‘80s trend to continue, and who knows…we may even see the return of ‘matching sets’ and shoulder pads. Can we handle it?” She also predicts that the athleisure style that has become popular since the days of Covid is here to stay; however, it will become more elevated and pulled together with leggings, joggers, and cute jackets. 

That’s not all though. Get ready to see rich and bold colors such as red and various tones of metallics, as well as leather everything! From jackets and dresses to skirts and pants, leather will be making an appearance in fall fashions. Got tweed in the back of your closet? If so, start to dust off those jackets and pants and embrace the textures. This year is all about versatility in your clothing! 

Besides clothing, shoes, and accessories, Vida Beale also takes large furniture pieces like couches, table and chair sets, and other various home furnishings. Typically, current style items are in need, but Kirsten has a love for unique and eclectic pieces. If you have one-of-a-kind items that are no longer sold in stores, bring them to Vida Beale to consign. 

Looking for a girls’ night out event or a morning coffee meet-up, consider doing it at Vida Beale. Kirsten can put together a memorable event for your friends and you’ll look cute while doing it too! She also offers wardrobe consultations and personal shopping support. It truly is a boutique experience! 

If you haven’t checked out Vida Beale Consignment, now is the time! Each day offers new items on the racks, so you never know what you will find, but you can guarantee it will be in pristine condition, in style, and within your budget!
