Luxury Garage Sale

Today I want to introduce you to an amazing new company based out of Chicago, started by two talented ladies with a love for all things fashionable.



Life long friends, Brielle Buchberg and Lindsay Segal came up with Luxury Garage Sale last summer when Brielle’s family was closing their antique store and Lindsay was personal styling clients and doing huge closet clean outs. The ladies realized there was a void in the market. There wasn't a full service consignment shop in Chicago that sold antiques, art and clothing—

Brielle and Lindsay started slowly selling within their personal network, and were having a lot of success. A few months later, the news of their service spread, and they decided to take a stab at it full time.

Brielle and Lindsay pride themselves on making the consignment process as hassle-free as possible. They go directly to their clients and pick up whatever the client is looking to sell. Closet consultations are also offered as part of their service. They then sell each piece they take in the most efficient venue possible, maximinzing the amount of money a client can make from each item. They team up with charities and fashionable stores around Chicago to host pop-up shops in addition to selling on ebay.

I trust these fashionable ladies to help me clean out my closet and keep me in the know on current trends, so today they are here to share some of their favorite fall trends and some items they are selling.

***********

Lindsay says “ Polka dots were seen on the fall runway more than once, so they must be in style! Wear a polka dot blouse under a classic suit to spice up your everyday work outfit, or be bold, and wear full on head to toe polkadots, like this INSANE Bill Blass outfit we are selling!” (ebay listing here)


 Brielle: “Leather always seems to be in style, but each year different versions of are a trend. This year leather skirts, shorts, form fitting jackets, & dresses are big. This is our favorite leather jacket we are selling this week. A leather jacket is a must-have staple for any wardrobe” (ebay listing here)


Lindsay: “ Ankle Booties are a big trend. You can’t walk into a department store without seeing rows of these beauts. Whether they are flat or heeled, they are made for a girl with long, lean legs…I kid, but be warned…you shouldn’t be wearing ankle boots if you have very short legs! They will cut you off in the wrong place. We are selling the cutest pair of 3.1 Phillip Lim for Gap ankle booties right now. I am slightly obsessed. If only they were in my size…” (ebay listing here)
Brielle: “I could sleep in fur. Actually, I kinda do… I have two golden retrievers that sleep in bed with me. I am thrilled that fur is in season this year. (I have temporarily retired my lint roller) This season fur vests are more sophisticated than ever. Wear this one over a long sleeved dress, or even throw it on with jeans & a tee to take a casual look from day to night." (ebay listing here)


Ohhh and we love both of these so much we decided to include this Zac Posen Winter White Fox Fur too (ebay listing here)

Lindsay: “I am all about the maxi skirt. It is casual, yet sophisticated. And I love how effortless these are to wear. They make me feel like I am not trying too hard. It can be tricky to find the perfect maxi skirt, but it sure pays off when you do. We are selling an amazing vintage Escada Couture maxi. It is definitely a formal piece, but you can also pair it with a blazer & you’re set for the perfect fall outfit." (ebay listing here).




Their entire stock is insane (I got a vintage Chanel bracelet for an amazing price). So check all of their ebay listings here. Lindsay and Brielle have also recently started a blog including outfits posts, fashion goodness and other amazingness. And if you're in the Chicago area there are occassional pop up stores and events that are wayyyy too good to miss, so check out their website for that!

PS I promise I am not getting paid for this post, it is just way too good of an idea/company not to share!!

  10. Wow, it really seems like they make the process completely hassle free. Too bad they are not in the DC area, my parents definitely could use a good house/ closet clean out. I just wrote a "booties" post and I wish I had seen those Phillip Lim booties before. Also wish they were in my size!
