our bricks & mortar store is located in the heart of north providence and was opened with a few simple things in mind...recycle, save money & give back...we take current clean clothing daily...sell it at great prices & donate what's left over after the consignment period...from Marc Jacobs to H&M, stop by to drop off, scope out new digs & find a little inspiration....

but in retail…it’s OVER…can you stand it? i’m still working on my tan & i’m pretty sure i saw sweaters online on a big chain store website.

SAY IT ISN’T SO!

but it is…so what does that mean for YOU? and blackbirds?  we are officially done taking summer items…our store is beautifully stocked with fantastic things to get you through the rest of the season, trust me….BUT we are no longer accepting appointments for summer item drops offs….

we will start taking in transitional & fall items in August…and you know we book up super fast, so if you want IN, call us…

until then…enjoy your summer….

we take items BY APPOINTMENT ONLY…so give us a call, because we are ALWAYS booked about 3 weeks out…no, really…

is it ok to want MORE???

October 22, 2013

and please…don’t get me wrong, i don’t mean MORE in a weird big sense…like more house, yard, money, handbags…(although i’m not gonna lie, there is a Marc Jacobs crossbody that i’m totally coveting)…i mean MORE, fulfillment.  more happiness, when you’re already wicked happy…more serenity, when you already have peace of mind… sometimes i feel guilty [...]
