CONSIGNING - IS IT MAGIC, LUCK OR
"THE PERFECT STORM"!
Reem Acra Gown
Whether we are
helping wedding parties with their cocktail and wedding event gowns,
assisting working women executives with their board room and travel
outfits, planning party or special occasion clothing for various
galas and charity events, or just servicing women shoppers of discerning
taste and quality, Classic Collections has something for
shopping, by its very nature, sometimes is similar to the concept of
the movie "The Perfect Storm." The woman customer has
to be looking for a specific piece of merchandise that is her size,
fits her budget and is the right color. Even Mother
Nature has a tough time sometimes making these things line up.
But they often do, and at Classic Collections, we strive to
assist customers with anything from a total outfit to just the perfect
accessory to make their own clothing, shoes or jewelry take on a whole
beauty of this system, aside from the obvious wonderful concept of
recycling fine designer goods for a fraction of the original cost is, of
course, the thrill of the hunt and the final wonderful moment when it
all comes together. This is probably where the MAGIC and LUCK
comes into play. Often, customers stroll in with nothing in
mind-"just looking today"-and walk out with bags of designer bargains
and they are in shoppers' heaven!
Prada Giraffe Purse
We have dressed movie stars,
politicians, local celebrities, gala charity ladies, doctors, brides,
matrons of honor, mothers of the bride/groom, lawyers, fashionistas and
young ladies on the way to their first prom! We have searched out
gowns for special occasions, helped wanna-be's look great for their big
events, made plain gals look glamorous and turned flashy, edgy young
ladies into socially perfect classic beauties in a day. We have
tons of pictures sent to us from happy, beautifully dressed clients at
weddings, proms, inductions, graduations and so many other celebratory
occasions. It's great!
It is truly so satisfying to
have a shop full of ladies shrieking with pleasure as each comes out of a
dressing room modeling a scrumptious outfit, dressed to the nines in a
luxury designer piece that makes them look phenomenal. Honestly,
we have as much fun as our customers do!
We have been
working with our technical team from SBS Solutions and JMB Designs on
ways to make our website more consumer friendly. Many of you may not
realize it, but we have a FULL
SERVICE SHOPPING BOUTIQUE
on our website! We offer many of the items in our shop with complete
photos and descriptions...especially luxury handbags, evening purses,
designer scarves, Louis Vuitton luggage, jewelry and other merchandise
that customers do not necessarily need to try on for size and fit.
addition, we have upgraded our on line payment method
to an authorized secure gateway for our customer's convenience
and safety. Our inventory system is "real time" so that every item is
offered on a first come, first served basis. From the shopping cart, you
can choose to log into your account to make your purchases, however,
logging in is not necessary. You can simply provide your credit card
information and shipping instructions. By creating your own
account, you will save steps on your next visit to our on-line store.
WISH LIST SERVICE!
Judith Leiber Disco Ball
On the rare occasion that you miss
out on something, one of the fabulous services we offer is a
personalized "Wish List" for our customers. So, if
someone beats you to that fabulous Valentino purse or vintage Judith
Leiber Swarovski crystal evening bag, simply send us an email and
indicate what designer and type of item you are
searching for. The next time we are imputing
inventory to our system and your name comes up for particular
merchandise, we will contact you. Part of our
success, is of course, keeping very good records of your preferences of
designer, price, color, size and what specific pieces to be on the
look-out for. The more information you give us, the
better we can serve your 'dream' wish list!
Summer is a great time for you to think about
that special item, dress, jacket, suit, shoes, gown, handbag, piece of
jewelry or scarf and let us know what you are pining for! You
can send us an email with your wish list(firstname.lastname@example.org) to set up or update your Wish List
Profile. As we receive merchandise during the year,
we let our loyal customers know when something comes in that they have
been looking for and give them a head's up sometimes even before the
item is put out onto our floor. Our customers trust
our judgment and after a quick phone call (if time allows, we send a
picture of the item) more often than not, a package is immediately sent
away to a very happy, satisfied customer.
You can have this preferred treatment by
making sure that we have your name, phone number, email address and your
"wish list" of merchandise-including designer preferences, sizes and
favorite colors. If the item has a style name
(Birkin, Kelly, etc.) please make sure to include that information also.
One other benefit of shopping at our WEB
BOUTIQUE and having a complete "Wish List" in place with Classic
Collections is that when we send anything to you out of the state of
Florida, while you pay for shipping costs, you WILL save on the sales
tax! That can represent a lot of savings!
By the way, we appreciate your reviews of our
shop, merchandise, and personnel! Next time you are online, and look us
up through google - palm beach consignment, give us a review and your

Collections is announcing our first ever Summer Vacation!
Debbie, Dove, Sally, Wendy
an optimist's point of view, we are going to take advantage of the
messy and distracting construction being done in our area of Palm Beach
this summer to refresh ourselves and the shop. What
can be thought of as the "Triple Crown of Construction" specifically
includes the new Publix project (on our side street, Sunset Ave.), along
with lane closures on Bradley Place and Royal Poinciana (plumbing and
water main replacements) as well as traffic challenges on the approach
and departure on the Royal Poinciana Bridge (bridge pre-replacement
construction)! We will close sometime in July and
re-open in September. We will be rested and the shop
will be professionally cleaned, painted and refreshed! And
the stunning NEW couture merchandise that will be ready for you will be
worth waiting for! Trust us on this!!!
