Florida certainly has its share of clothing consignment stores. Due to the transient nature of its population and affluent resort communites there is always a steady supply of upscale merchandise to be had for bargain prices. But not all consignment stores are created equal! One of the best I’ve had the pleasure of shopping in is Circa Vintage in the lovely coastal town of Tequesta Florida. If you’re ever in the Palm Beach area, or anywhere in south Florida for that matter, a visit to this fabulous upscale boutique is a must.
Owner, Carol Wright, has a keen eye for the classy and stylish. Many A list celebrities shop there when they’re visiting the area because she stocks such a unique selection of vintage clothing for both men and women, along with contemporary designer and couture fashions. Beside managing her busy shop, this multi talented lady also offers stylist services and costuming for theater productions, including shows at the Maltz Jupiter Theater, a renowned Florida performance center.
Labels you’re likely to see there- Escada, Chanel, Stella McCartney, Emilio Pucci, Versace, Gucci along with many more at extremely reasonable prices. And her designer handbag collection is TDF!
This quote from her website says it best “Circa Vintage Consignment Boutique offers the shopper champagne tastes on a sparkling wine budget. ”
Below are some photos I took on a recent visit. The swanky decor, which includes wall to wall leopard print carpeting, lavender and pumpkin color walls, along with antique and vintage furnishings creates a cozy, yet chic ambience that makes for a fun, relaxing shopping experience.
At Circa Vintage you’ll find retro Hawaiian wear, fur coats, cashmere sweaters, clothing from the 40s through the 80s, shoes, purses, hats and jewelry along side contemporary evening gowns, plenty of Lilly Pulitzer and St Johns Knits and other high end designer labels. There is such a fantastic selection of merchandise there, it’s pretty much impossible to leave there empty handed. So on your next trip to the Sunshine State make sure Circa Vintage is on your list of Florida hot spots to visit!
