So the entire team here at TTDLanc all agree that Fall is, by far, our favorite season. and while we love the weather, we especially love the clothes. Finally, we can start pulling out those scarves, fun boots and layers!
Not only does Fall mean changing leaves and crisp mornings, it’s also a good time to take a look at that closet, clean it out and go shopping! Many of us are on budgets and while the latest clothing trends at the local designer clothing store are wonderful (we do suggest buying a few key pieces from these stores), consignment allows us to walk away happy with several bags of stylish, gently-used items for a lot less. Since consignment is so hot here in Lancaster County, we decided to reach out to several local stores for our oh-so-fun Fall In Love with Fall photo shoot.
We asked a few consignment stores to provide us with several outfits which we’d use in our photo shoot (aren’t those kids adorable) and also give a tip or two on shopping consignment for the Fall. Store owners greeted the idea with such willingness and were very helpful during the selection process. You can tell these ladies know their stuff. We asked for Fall clothes and they delivered. While this photo shoot did focus mostly on children’s clothing, we did find classic women’s outfits (and even bought a few of them for ourselves!)
Needless to say, we had a blast with this assignment. The kids hammed it up for the camera, we learned a lot about Fall consignment shopping and our closets are now ready for the cooler weather.
Fall in love with Fall Fashion with us and be sure to visit some of the wonderful stores we had the pleasure of working with. Also, feel free to share your favorite Fall shopping tips!
We know this list is not complete and we have many other wonderful consignments stores in the area, so please let us know your favorite and we’re happy to tell our TTDLanc family about them.
