Fantastic Finds – Everything Old is New Again …and Worth a Look! — May 29, 2018

Fantastic Finds – Everything Old is New Again …and Worth a Look!

Everything old is new again! The old Discovery Shop in Chappaqua was good but I must say that I am enjoying its reincarnation all the more. I stepped into Fantastic Finds and it certainly lives up to its name. A 75% off Fall clothing sale was going on when I visited. I walked out with a couple of great buys; a pair of Talbot’s pants for $5 and a Tahari dress/duster for $7.50 plus a couple of other staples. But even without the sale, this is definitely one of the better upscale resale shops in the Westchester/Putnam area.  They carry men’s and women’s clothing, jewelry, scarves, handbags and other accessories. I think they have a excellent selection of brand name merchandise with some high end merchandise as well. Their Spring collection was excellent. They also carry household items such as small accent furniture, housewares, china (quite beautiful too), home décor, and musical instruments. I thoroughly enjoyed looking through the art. Actually, I had a great time browsing through the store, there was just so much to see.

As far as pricing, I find it comparable and slightly cheaper than other UPSCALE shops that are similar to Fantastic Find.  All the merchandise is in PRISTINE condition and there are certainly gift quality selections to be found. I hope that the pictures tell a much better story of what Fantastic Finds is all about!



What is wonderful is that all proceeds from sales at Fantastic Finds will benefit Support Connection, an organization that provides free, year-round breast and ovarian cancer support services. They rely on your donations to provide free programs and support services. 88¢ of every dollar donated goes directly to fund these critically needed services.


Check out Fantastic Finds – I promise it’s worth the trip!

Luxurious Consignment At The Penny Pincher In Bedford Hills, NY — September 1, 2015

Luxurious Consignment At The Penny Pincher In Bedford Hills, NY

If you absolutely love and want to have some luxury designer clothing and accessories, this consignment shop in Bedford Hills, New York is for you. The “Penny Pincher” carries Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Hermes, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Gucci and so many many more designers and all at consignment shop prices. They have sales (the day I stopped in there was 20% off select merchandise) and clearance so the odds are in your favor if you want to score a spectacular designer piece for your closet. There is a fabulous array of exquisite estate jewelry as well. It certainly is fun to browse through this store as the layout of the store is appealing and the jewelry displays are perfectly done. I must add that all the clothes, shoes and accessories are in immaculate condition and they absolutely guarantee authenticity. This boutique was voted repeatedly by Westchester Magazine as the “Best Consignment Shop”.


I found them to have a wonderful variety of clothing and accessories in all different sizes. You would be hard pressed not to be able to find a handbag or two or three to your liking. What I especially loved about this story was all the jewelry. Designer and estate jewelry — So many unique and exquisite pieces, I had to leave before I whipped out a charge card :).


They also carry a variety of furniture, some artwork and lots of home décor (reasonably priced). Please check out their website as that will give you a much better idea of what the boutique carries – . You can even shop their Ebay store. This store is definitely worth stopping in if you are in the area, even to just window shop 🙂 !!
