Meet Maywood’s Katoure Consignment Boutique

#HipNJ recently interviewed consignment celebrity Karen Stagg, owner of Katoure Consignment Boutique located in Maywood!

#Hippers, if you’re all about discount shopping and high-end handbags, this place is definitely for you!

Hip New Jersey: How was it like being recently featured on reality T.V.?

Karen Stagg: Amazing!  Our feature on “Life of Debt” aired on March 13th at 10pm on Spike. This was highly anticipated as the producers came into the boutique to film around April/June of last year.

The show is basically a financial makeover type of deal. Victor Antonio, the show’s financial strategist, is trying to help people change their way of spending money. Our episode featured a wife who had expensive taste and sold some of her high-end items to the store.

HipNJ: How did the production company find you?

KS: We get phone calls and emails from different scouts asking to film in the store on a consistent basis. Maywood is very charming and our store reflects that.

HipNJ: What were the other shows you were featured on?

KS: The biggest show was for NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”. It’s always a great time.

HipNJ: When did you open the store?

KS: I started the store four years ago and before that I sold out of my home for three years.

HipNJ: What makes you so passionate about what you do?

KS: This is in my blood.  I grew up as a garage sale/flea market type of baby, and always shopped in consignment stores before I opened my own.  When it came time to open my storefront, I let my instincts take over.

HipNJ: High-end consignment shops seems to be all the rage right now.  What sets you apart from the rest?

KS: My customers know I have very fair prices, and they know they will be working with me.  That familiarity goes a long way.  I keep a record of who bought what, and have a “wish list” for customers waiting on certain items.  It’s almost like I’m their personal shopper, and you don’t get that in other consignment stores

HipNJ: Talk about owning a storefront here in New Jersey and particularly in Maywood.

KS: I picked Maywood because this is a huge walking town, no matter the season.  Maywood’s downtown is so quaint and family-oriented, and it’s nice that residents have everything they need right at their fingertips.  And best of all for shoppers, there’s parking!  I love this town and I love my beautiful space.  Please come and check it out!
