Uptown Attic: The New Kid on the Block
By Robin Hayes
From Issue 2: Spring 2009
Nestled between Pasquale’s Pizzeria and Lightsey’s Cycles you will now find Uptown Attic, a women’s and children’s consignment shop owned by Montgomery resident Jodi Whitehead. Jodi’s enthusiasm for the consignment concept is contagious–and who can blame her? Pre-owned fashion at Uptown Attic costs about 50% of the norm, and you fight global warming by reducing the need for more manufactured goods. It’s fun, and environmentally and economically friendly all at the same time.
Jodi is now accepting spring items, and will be looking at summer ones in May. Bring in up to 20 items at a time—women’s, juniors, plus sizes and school-age kids’ clothes, shoes or accessories—and Jodi will accept the ones that are clean, in very good to new condition, and that are in style now or are classics. When your items sell you get 40% of the sales price, and if they don’t sell after 90 days, you can pick them up, or have Jodi donate them to Family of New Paltz. As a consignor, you also get 15% off other items in the store!
The shop is full of moderately priced fashions, but I also saw some pretty impressive names like Stella McCartney, Ann Taylor, Free People, Seven for All Mankind, Coach, Dooney and Bourke, NY and Co., Lucky Brand, Aeropostale, Abercrombie and Fitch and Manolo Blahnik. Dresses are priced from $15 to $100 with lots of choices in the $25-30 range. Jeans tend to be $10 to $25, but there is so much more. So stop by Uptown Attic and see for yourself!
