Four Reasons Why Consignment Keeps it Green

It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Consignment takes gently worn or brand new items that are no longer needed and finds them a home. Is there ever a better win-win than that?

It keeps our earth beautiful. Every piece of clothing and accessory that comes through our doors is another item that’s not filling a pesky landfill, and one less mass-produced item is going in your closet.

It’s good for the pocketbook. Fashion can cost an arm and a leg, but in resale you get to break the rules. With items marked down from 25-80% of the original price, you can spend the rest of your money on other life necessities (like chocolate, for example).

It’s good for the conscience. There’s something intangibly satisfying about knowing that the item you’re purchasing is not only reducing waste on our planet, it’s saving space in your wallet, too.

Don’t forget the perks: Pick out a seed packet for your garden as part of your gift with any $30 purchase while supplies last, or go all out and get our custom-designed Here We Go Again tees with any purchase of $75 or more. Resale shopping is green shopping.  Grab a girlfriend (or two) and throw on your dancing shoes (or buy some). We’ll put on the music!

Chris is a self-confessed resale fashionista. A fashion recycler from an early age, she learned the consignment business from her mother, Jan Gauger, at omt divine resale in Lincoln, Nebraska. Chris moved to Portland, Oregon in 1990 and immediately felt at home, among her people. She started Here We Go Again Deluxe Resale Boutique in 1992 and has never looked back. The second location of her store opened in 1997. Chris loves pretty much everything about clothes and fashion, but she has a serious boot and shoe addiction that is fed by the two stores. It's doubtful she will ever be recovered. In addition to clothes, Chris loves mentoring young women and teaching them about what it takes to run and manage a small business. She has employed some pretty remarkable women over the years and is grateful for all they've done to help grow Here We Go Again. She is a Hoosier by birth, but was raised in Nebraska. She has two sisters who continue to run the consignment store there, and one brother who has sense enough to stay out of the way. Her husband of twenty-seven years, is a land use planner and the fix-anything-guru that Chris relies upon more often than she'd like.
