Business: Downtown Fashion Resale
Location: 129 N. High St., Millville
Store supervisor: Kristin Corum, 23, of Vineland
Downtown Fashion Resale is a gently used clothing store. People bring in their items, we buy them and resell them at up to 80 percent off of retail.
We only sell women's and children's clothes, up to 5T for toddlers.
We also sell, besides clothing, jewelry, bags, shoes and other accessories.
We deal in major mall brands, upscale brands such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Guess, Coach, Hollister and BCBG.
We do our best to stay in fashion, trendy, stylish, anything a woman would want.
Downtown Fashion Resale has the same approach to kids clothes, carrying brands such as the Children's Place, Ralph Lauren and Baby Gap.
We do have some off-brand items, but we try to keep that to a minimum.
Right now we have a Michael Kors dress with purple, light and dark brown, and white stripes crossing through it, with a tie in the front. The material feels casual, but you could transform from day to night with a few accessories. That dress is $14. Dresses on the Michael Kors website range from $200 to two grand.
We have a couple of Dooney & Bourke purses in stock, a much sought after brand. One of them is $18, and the other is $23.
For children, we carry from onesies to a green Nike outfit with a sweater top and a bottom.
We also have a few Halloween costumes.
Our inventory comes from the public. People can just bring in their suitable brand items. We'll review and inspect them, and then we'll offer them a cash price.
Entry: We have a sister store, Dolled Up, in Mays Landing. With the success of that, we decided to open a second store, Downtown Fashion Retail, in Cumberland County.
The future: At this point we just want to add more inventory and customers.
