Consignment Shop Deal

As part of my recent birthday suprise, my hubby took me clothes shopping. Of course my penny pinching self had to figure out how to score a good deal. I can't bring myself to pay full price on my birthday! For a while now, I have been wanting to visit this new consignment shop called Renaissance that recently opened up in the Lee Branch area of Birmingham. When hubs asked me if there were any new shops I wanted to try, I immediately thought of this place. The atmosphere of the shop feels really upscale and boutique-y however, their prices are so great!

I looked around for a while and found several things that I loved. They have casual and formal clothes and they also sale accessories and bridal gowns. But imagine my shock when I spotted this J. Crew seersucker suit for $19. Its in excellent condition and it fits perfectly. I kept telling my hubby, "can you believe this?" After I tried the suit on I was so excited that I didn't look for anything else to purchase but I will definitely be back very soon to update my wardrobe.

Renaissance is not only a fun place to shop but charitable. On the first Friday of every month, they donate 5% of total sales to a charitable organization. If your in the Birmingham area, you should definitely check them out.
