Luxury Garage Sale

Founded by childhood friends Brielle Buchberg and Lindsay Segal, Luxury Garage Sale is the result of its co-founders’ extensive experience in fashion, retail, marketing and styling. Their deep knowledge informed Luxury Garage Sale’s consignment and sales processes, which are setting new standards in the luxury resale industry. With boutiques in Chicago, Dallas, Minneapolis and Seattle, and a state-of-the-art e-commerce platform, Luxury Garage Sale has been featured in notable media such as Vogue, Refinery29, Marie Claire and ELLE.

Luxury Garage Sale customers are privy to a rewarding shopping experience because of its talented stylists and superior merchandising. “We really know our customers, and select the pieces we feature in each pop-up shop with its location in mind. Our market expertise and style acumen make it possible for shoppers to find exceptional staples—as well as rare pieces that can be transformative,” said Buchberg.

An equally strategic approach informs Luxury Garage Sale’s consignment process. “It’s intuitive and hassle-free, because we know when it comes to coveted, gently used designer pieces our clients rely on us for the most effective reselling experience and return on investment,” said Segal. “Our in-house market experts evaluate, authenticate, photograph and price every item we consign, and go the extra mile to meet our clients’ requirements and needs.”

Pop-ups also give consumers access to Luxury Garage Sale’s most customer-friendly consignment practices: the option to drop off merchandise during store hours without prior appointment, and complimentary in-home consignment consultations and merchandise pickup. LGS handles the rest for a seamless, stress-free experience.

Luxury Garage Sale’s New Jersey pop-up can be found in the following location:

Westfield, New Jersey August 15 – September 15
Monday-Saturday: 10am – 6pm

Mindful Style

A cluttered closet is a cluttered mind.  One #hip woman is here to help you let go of your materialist attachments and tap into your highest potential.

#HipNJ’s Kelly Dillon sat with Mindful Style founder Betsy Ames,  who is rejuvenating lives one closet at a time.

Betsy has enjoyed a fabulous career in fashion, but nine years ago realized that motherhood didn’t jive with her former fashionista persona.  She made over her closet to reflect her new life, and her inner circle quickly signed up to give their closets the same practical touch.

“I believe when you have less, your mind is cleared,” explained Betsy.

Betsy works with clients to create a “personal formula” based on clothing and accessories that reflect their true lifestyle.  To cut down on wardrobe anxiety, Betsy simplifies clients’ selections by streamlining their choices.  Betsy also urges clients to patronize companies with eco-friendly, high quality items, and teaches responsible ways to get rid of old clothing.

“Don’t throw away your garments.  Donate, or give to a consignment shop,” urged Betsy.  “A typical polyester blouse it like a plastic bottle- it takes 100 years to disintegrate.”

In this segment, Betsy offers advise to all the closet hoarders out there.  “I would start by putting things away out of site.  If you don’t miss it, why are you hanging onto it?”

Would you say your style is “edgy” or “artisic”? Or do you appreciate a more safe and comfortable look? Regardless, at Maluka, there is a guaranteed fashion find for all.

Maluka is a Jersey luxe, family owned fashion boutique located in the heart of Bergen County in Wyckoff, NJ.  Similarly to the name of the store, all inventory within the boutique reflects a little bit of each owners’ personality. HipNJ’s Gina La Morte visited the boutique, where she spoke with store owning trio, Marcy, Lulu (Lindsay), and Kari.

Since the store opened its doors in 2006, it has become the go-to fashion place in suburbia. What makes Maluka stand out amongst other stores in the area is their patent sense of small town and community. (The store carries only a few pieces of each hand-picked item from their collections– so there’s no wardrobe repeats at that fab dinner party!)  This simple strategy keeps their business flourishing, because their customers receive an individualized look a part from anyone else.

When you shop at Maluka, whether online or in the boutique, it is their top priority to make sure that you are getting the best the industry has to offer. They want to make sure that you, the customer, have as much fun shopping for yourselves as they have shopping for you!

So get ready to have some real fashion fun and visit their website and begin your #HipNJ shopping spree today!
