By Suzanne O'Connor

The fashion savvy, the well-heeled and sharp female shoppers all recognize the value of shopping at resale clothing boutiques like The Closet Trading Company.

These nicely curated, easy to shop resale boutiques are a perfect size with just the right amount of inventory. You’ll find gently used, top designers like Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Chanel, Chloe, Clover Canyon, Dolce & Gabbana, Equipment, For Love & Lemons, Haute Hippie, Hermes, Isabel Marant, Jeffrey Campbell, Johnny Was, Free People, Louboutin, Louis Vuitton, Lululemon, Marc Jacobs, MCM, Missoni, Prada, Rag & Bone and more all priced at 60%-85% below original retail.

Highlights from my recent visit include a Fendi Whip stitched distressed messenger handbag for $498 instead of the original $2000.  A Marc Jacobs leather briefcase bag was $198 instead of $650. A Louis Vuitton Shoulder tote was $800 instead of $1800 and a Perlina leather bag was $68 instead of $280.
