If you are a thrift'n-ista that even KNOWS what a Birkin handbag is... Newport Coast has a thrift store for you!
Calling Affluent Goods a thrift store is not really a correct description. The shop may have secondhand goods, but it is actually a very high-end consignment boutique store. Affluent Goods is now the go-to place in Newport Coast specializing in pricey secondhand designer goods. That aforementioned Birkin handbag? Affluent Goods currently has a sapphire blue Hermes Birkin handbag, replete with palladium hardware- a steal at $16,000 (considering a brand new Birkin purse can range anywhere from $9,000-$250,000 depending on size, materials used, never mind the waiting list for customers to purchase them!)
Gucci, Missoni, Ferragamo, Chanel, Louboutin, Prada, Armani, Dior, Burberry- these are the designer name items found in this high-end consignment store. Those in the know take advantage of ultra-upscale OC women whose gently (and sometimes never-used goods) arrive here regularly. These women have the wardrobes that are recycled often to keep up with seasonal new styles. Plus these ladies are the women who are never photographed in the same outfits twice at their events. This neccessitates a constant weeding out of their designer clothing-filled closets- all to great benefit of Affluent Goods shoppers.
Owner Abigail Said posts extensive ever-changing online shopping opportunities at their website at www.affluentgoods.com- no need to even set foot in the store at all. If you do desire to browse though, Affluent Goods is located at 21111 Newport Coast Drive Newport Coast CA 92657 (in the Newport Coast Shopping Center at Newport Coast and San Joaquin). Their phone is 1-800-917-1594.
So this is the tip for OC thrift'n-istas that want to obtain the consumer goods of a six figure lifestyle- without the six figure price tag. Happy haute couture hunting at Affluent Goods-may a "Berkin bargain" await!
