With its chic, ever-changing merchandise and growing client base, Labels has established itself as the premier designer consignment boutique in Greenville, SC. Open since June 29, 2009, the store has recently been updated with newly displayed fall and winter items.
Owner Bentley DeGarmo says women have truly embraced the consignment shopping experience at Labels, located in the high-end retail shopping district of Augusta Road. Half of the store traffic includes loyal customers who stop by at least once a week to check out what’s new. These savvy shoppers understand the importance of staying ahead of the curve: "our inventory is constantly changing," DeGarmo states, “new fashions arrive every day, so unless you check in on a regular basis you’ll never know what fabulous items you'll miss out on."
Secondhand clothing typically indicates well-loved, albeit worn out fashions. At Labels, however, the styles are contemporary and of the highest quality. Over a quarter of the inventory comes in brand-new, complete with tags. Customers can hardly wait for the latest items to be placed on the floor. In DeGarmo’s words, "Some things don't even get checked in before the next shopper spots it on the incoming rack and snaps it up."
The range of Labels visitors has also exceeded expectations. "I've been surprised at the number of consignors and shoppers who have traveled from neighboring counties such as Hendersonville, Laurens, Spartanburg and Anderson. We're thrilled to hear of friends sending friends because they've been pleased with their latest Labels find."
This week, shoppers will see 500+ new, one-of-a-kind items in the shop. Cooler weather clothing and accessories are now on the floor including a wide range of fine sweaters, jackets, lightweight scarves, tops, skirts, suits and light coats, all neatly organized by style and size. The owners say they can hardly keep up with the plethora of terrific new fall arrivals including designers like Badgley Mischka, David Meister, Chanel, Gucci, Kay Unger, and more.
