For brand names at consignment prices, stroll through Julie's Walk-In Closet in Brandon

September

P9272736 Westfield Brandon rocks my socks, but last week I learned it's not the only place in Eastern Hillsborough County to score brands like Coach, Dolce & Gabbana and Ann Taylor. The new consignment shop Julie's Walk-In Closet at 759 W Brandon Blvd. lives up to its slogan of "consignment shopping with a boutique feeling."

Owner Julie Pomeroy (that's her on your right) worked for 25 years at a veterinary hospital before openingP9272734 the women's clothing shop on June 18. "We're searching for a shopper who is discriminating, used to quality and not willing to pay full price for those high-end brands," she said when I stopped in last week. Is she speaking our language or what?

On my visit, I found brand names, most at about 70 percent off the retail price, for jeans, tops, dresses, suits, shoes, accessories, maternity wear and more, all organized by size. Love that!

P9272738 If you're looking to clean out your closet, bring in your like-new clothing and accessories for consignment. Pomeroy is currently accepting light fall items, short-sleeve shirts, shorts, shoes and handbags. You'll get 50 percent of the proceeds. If an item doesn't sell after 90 days, you can pick it up or Pomeroy will donate them to charity.
