When Jennifer Popieniek and Tracy Auten couldn't find the right place to resell their designer duds, they decided to open their own consignment boutique, J.T. Posh. The pair, both in tune with fashion (Auten was a buyer for Belk; Popieniek, a former teacher, has an eye for the PR side of the biz), opened the store a year ago this month.
By accepting only items from an edited list of boutique designers like Chloé, Molly B, Stella McCartney, and Ella Moss, they've created a shopping environment catered to a hip, trendy shopper. "Our shoppers can come here to find their next Molly New York party dress, work-appropriate pieces, and jackets from Trina Turk without having to sort through loads of off-brand clothing," says Auten.
Also check out Posh's premium denim from Theory, shoes and handbags from Botkier and Gucci, and designer shades by Versace.
