Choosing Trust

Last week, the scent of Daphne was everywhere. This week, it’s mingled with the burgeoning fragrance of apple and cherry blossoms. The perfume is positively intoxicating! It’s a reminder that Spring is upon us, and change is occurring everywhere. As the days grow longer, our quarantine grows shorter. Progress is happening. Systems are working more efficiently. I am choosing to trust.

My relationship with trust runs deep. After all, this business is nothing without it. As we near the launch of our 30th year this summer, I’m trying to improve on the motto we adopted at our 25th: “Trust & Treasures”. I still feel that sums us up. I’m grateful to all our lovely consignors who trust us with their treasures to sell. I’m also grateful to all our fabulous shoppers who trust us to curate a shop full of designer resale goodies they’ll love; and trust us to take their health and safety seriously during this fearful time. 

Thank you for choosing to trust us. We won’t let you down, we pinky-swear!

p.s. come see us when you can, the Spring arrivals are in full force, and designer consignment pieces are being added (and going out the door!) every day!

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.
