June Resale is not quite a vintage shop, but it's not your average consignment shop, either. June is a gem in the heart of Uptown offering year-round styles and hard-to-find pieces (like retired styles). Recent offerings have included purses from Marc Jacobs, Chanel and Gucci. For its high-end styles at budget-friendly prices, the store consistently receives good reviews from shoppers looking to punch up their wardrobes. If you're checking out June's blog-style website and happen upon something you have to have, but can't make it into the store, June can ship it directly to your door.
