Many of you expressed fear and dismay about the future of HWGA when you learned about the closure of our Broadway shop. I want to assure you that the decision was made to put us on a firmer footing for survival long-term.

A month in, it’s clearer than ever it was the right choice at the right time. Our consolidation has made us more SOLID. We’re focusing on what makes us special – personal service, our sense of whimsy and curating the best collection of authentic designer resale treasures we know you’ll love. You can shop and consign with us confident we’ll be here for years to come.

As we gain momentum, and our new normal becomes more “normal,” watch for even more merchandise to be added to our online shop, a more active social media presence and a ramp-up to our 30th year which begins this summer!

All of us at HWGA are so grateful for your support this past year. Thanks to you, we’re stronger, healthier and ready to embark on the next chapter of this business.

xoxo ~chris

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.
