Crystal Stephen is showing Stapleton a different side of consignment.
Her new community business, Plum Consignment, showcases the savings as well as the style of gently used women and children’s goods.
“I wanted to change the image and reputation that some consignment shops battle. Plum will have a boutique feel, with wooden hangers, an exposed ceiling, brick accents, concrete floors … and we’re taking the legwork out of dirty thrift shopping,” Stephen said. “We will be discriminating in our consignment process and therefore offer a great selection of mint-condition, name-brand clothing. When you come to shop, you’ll find our merchandise will be close to Plum-perfect.”
Plum Consignment is now open inside the Central Park Professional Condominiums in Stapleton’s South End neighborhood this September and will be located in between Mici’s Handcrafted Italian Restaurant and Sweet Life Nail Bar.
Stephen, a Stapleton resident, said the area’s energy drew her to the location.
“I think it’s just an exciting time for the Central Park Professional Condos. I love the fact that there are several small businesses that are opening there and willing to take the risk.” she said. “I’ve been a consignment shopper for years, so it’s by experience that I wanted to open a store of my own and felt it would be a good fit right here in our sustainable community.
“Consignment can be a wonderful way to earn a little extra money while clearing your closets of high-end clothing you no longer want or need!”
Plum is at 2373 Central Park Blvd. and open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday as well as noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
Plum Consignors will immediately get an in-store credit once an item sells or can opt to receive a check at the end of the month. Visit PlumGood.com to learn more!
