paradigm consign

Sad news for the consignment world in last week’s Richmond Biz Sense:

    The Butterfly Consignment Boutique (5726 B Patterson Ave) has closed after 25 years in business.

    Paradigm (recently renamed, previously Pieces Boutique) will close its location at 1301 W. Main St. by May 1 but continue operating online.

(Pieces is located on W Main Street, a few doors down from City Dogs.)

Quick overview review –

I stopped and shopped Pieces Boutique + Consignment last week because I had purchased a Groupon for it a few months ago. My mom was watching the boys that afternoon so I had the distinct luxury of trying items on sans screaming AND not having the dressing room curtain pulled open in the process. So obviously I have a positive impression of the experience.

Women’s clothes were sorted by style (tanks, dresses, jeans, shirts, etc.) and size. Many of the items were basic, preppy pieces with brands such as Ann Taylor, J. Crew, Ralph Lauren, and so on well-represented. Prices started around $6 and went to at least $40, but the majority of tops I browsed fell in the $10-$20 range.

The store also carries accessories, shoes, and mens clothing.

Look for pink stickers on the backs of tags to denote items 50% off!
