If you want to create a certain "look," for example, roaring '20s, psychedelic '60s or just want to clear out your closet to make way for newer styles, consignment stores offer flexibility and one-of-a-kind pieces. This is an expansion to a previous article, Best Vintage Clothing Shops. Here are a few of the Metroplex's best fashion consignment stores.
