Local resale shops offer fashion
bargains for your favorite mom.
Ronelle Grier I Contributing Writer
ext to breakfast in bed, there's nothing like a
chic new outfit to brighten any mother's day. If
those stylish threads come with an unbelievably
low price tag, all the better. That is why resale shops have
become the go-to place for smart moms (sons and daugh-
ters, too) seeking fabulous fashions at fantastic prices.
Forget any notions of "thrift stores" from a bygone era;
these resale establishments are spacious, clean and filled
with high-quality merchandise that is none the worse for
wear. Labels range from designers such as Dior and Chanel
to mid-range department store brands such as Liz Claiborne
and Jones New York. To find the perfect outfit for Mother's
Day brunch or that special piece of vintage jewelry for your
favorite mom, skip the mall and try a local resale store.

entry turned in by Rachel Leider of Farmington
Hills. Simple, direct and full of admiration for a
mother who helped her kids understand and come
to terms with real life.
