Last month, I spent a Saturday afternoon at Rewind Consignment Clothing (1002 Macleod Trail SE) to chat with owner Krista Hopfauf. I originally met Krista back in 2010 when she graciously agreed to support an event that I was organizing. This time, we met for an interview for The Creative Mixx:)
Done with the corporate world, Krista decided to follow her passion for fashion and acquired Rewind Consignment Clothing 3 1/2 years ago. As a boutique owner, Krista loves that she gets to wear many hats; from Merchandiser to Bookkeeper, Marketing Professional to Buyer, Customer Service & Sales Rep to Negotiator. Her days are always interesting and unique.
Now, if you're in Calgary and haven't made your way down to the store, then you are missing out on a gem. Here are a few reasons why I dig this space.
First - the store's bi-level interior has character; featuring exposed brick & hardwood floors.
Second - expect to see quality items from Canadian designers at affordable prices (under $100). The fact that you can support local designers without breaking the bank is such a bonus.
Third - it's a Consignment shop! I love consignment for the variety that it can bring to a store. You just never know what you'll get:)
FYI - Consignment is accepted Monday to Friday. Check out the website for FAQ's by clickingHERE
(For more information on the designers featured at Rewind Consignment Clothing just visit the website by clicking HERE)
She's also connected with Fabu Hair Studio to offer a Spring/Summer promo! (I'll post the image of promo underneath this line of copy)
"If it's something you're passionate about, then go for it, but make sure you do some research first. Business is competitive & you want as many cards as possible stacked in your favour."
One more reason to get you excited about Rewind Consignment Clothing is knowing that there's a SALE going on! 40% off select new & consigned pieces!!!
