We took a break from our film festival marathon last week, to check out a local consignment shop. In truth, I dragged my husband along. He’d rather have this eyes put out with a hot poker than go clothes shopping.
It was rainy and cold so I wore Eileen Fisher Ponte knit pants, which are warmer than my crepe ones, my favorite leopard coat, comfy Rockport shooties and a pink wrap to brighten the look. I love pink and gray together.
I’d heard great things about Re-Deux, in Rancho Mirage and was anxious to see what they had.
It’s a resale, vintage and consignment store featuring designer garments and accessories. The owner, Colleen, has been photographed several times by Ari Seth Cohen for Advanced Style and I was hoping to meet her. She wasn’t in the shop that day, but I did have fun poking around.
Consignment shopping is like a treasure hunt. There’s only 1 of everything so you have to get lucky and find your size in the garment you want.

Jewelry and handbags are an easier find…no size required. They had one vintage Chanel handbag but it wasn’t a color I would use. Apparently, they’d just sold 3 last week which all sounded like ones I would have loved!
I think the secret to finding that perfect treasure lies in stalking good resale shops or having a friend on the inside who’ll call you when something awesome comes in.
I’ll be back to Re-Deux during our holiday here because:
- I want to shop without my husband
- I would like to meet Colleen
- I’m hoping someone drops off that perfect vintage handbag I want
Do you shop resale shops? What’s your favorite thing to shop for at consignment stores?
