NEW YORK, Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether you dream of the day you'll fit into that designer dress again, or you're the type who loves to shop and never wear something twice, we all have clothes, handbags, shoes, and accessories staring back at us from our closets that we're not likely to wear in public again. For those in the know, getting rid of old outfits can prove as lucrative as it is liberating.

For nearly 20 years, Marci Kessler has collected high-end designer apparel and accessories from the rich and famous, and anyone with new or gently worn clothing that they no longer want or need. Her DoubleTake Consignment Boutique in Short Hills, New Jersey sells quality designer and couture clothing and accessories, fine watches, jewelry, shoes and handbags on consignment for the most discerning fashionistas.

Business has been so good, that DoubleTake is now accepting merchandise from throughout the nation to fill four new stores opening in 2010. Items must be presently stylish, and less than two years old.

"I never anticipated such an overwhelming response," Kessler says. "From day one we've had a steady continuous stream of beautiful designer merchandise that comes from people in every imaginable situation, and because we have such a high turnover rate through fast sales in our stores, we've built up a base of over 10,000 regular consignors."

For those with a large collection of luxury apparel, DoubleTake offers a "Consignment Concierge" service, unlike any other local boutique. A personal consignment concierge will travel to your home to expertly assess the value of your collection, and arrange to transport items to their stores.

When items are sold, 50 percent of the sales price is paid to the consignor. "Our consignors love the convenience of getting a check, or having funds held in an account from which they can draw from to buy merchandise," says Kessler.

Savvy shoppers can build a substantial wardrobe of world-class designer apparel, and consistently sport the latest fashions at a fraction of their original cost.

"Thousands of our best customers opt for instant text messages and e-mails to keep informed of when new merchandise comes in," says Kessler.
