Fashion is pretty important in Orange County. You see it everywhere you go. People are dressed in the latest fashions produced by the most fashionable labels. However, it’s not always easy to pay the price for those labels. Consignment stores are a great option to find fashionable clothes at a price that is way lower than retail. They are also great places to sell the clothing and accessories you don’t really use anymore. Try these stores if you have some gently used clothes to sell.
