If thrifting brings up visions of overstuffed clothing racks smelling faintly of mothballs and…who knows what, you can set your mind at ease. The Vault Luxury Resale shop has all of the pros and none of the cons you can experience in traditional thrifting experiences. Their stock, which is ever-changing, is comprised of all the designers you’ve known for years (Chanel, Dior, Givenchy, Hermes) and most accessible brands you’d rather not pay full price for (Lululemon, Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Theory). They consign pieces from all over the country, dealing with celebrities, stylists, and the brands’ reps themselves.
Owner Sue McCarthy opened The Vault in 2016 in St. Louis, an unlikely (to some) place for some of the best luxury fashion deals in the country. But she’s a professional and only deals with authentic pieces, so whether you’re looking at Vince or Versace, you’re guaranteed to get the real deal—no knock-offs here.
