With six locations scattered throughout Atlanta’s Buckhead community (the address listed is for their “Main House” location), it’s no wonder that Labels has been voted one of Atlanta’s best consignment stores for five years running. The great thing about Labels is its stores are specialized, so you don’t have to dig through a lot of things you don’t want to get to what you do. With locations dedicated to men’s and women’s fashion, separates, shoes, deep discounts, and children’s clothing, there’s a Labels location to meet your need.

For a quarter century, The Board of Trade has been offering the Atlanta area a place to buy and sell a wide variety of items. While you can buy apparel at The Board of Trade, this store’s specialty has always been high end furniture, décor, and vintage jewelry. If you have a piece of antique furniture, jewelry, or high quality and unique home decorations and furnishings, The Board of Trade is the consignment store of choice, with numerous high end decorators and home designers frequenting the store for supplies. There is plenty of space in the store’s 10,000 square foot showroom to showcase even large pieces.

With three locations in Buckhead, John’s Creek, and Sandy Springs, Alexis Suitcase is sure to have a location convenient to you. Alexis Suitcase sets itself apart from many other consignment stores in Atlanta in that it deals exclusively with high end consignment merchandise. For the most part, Alexis Suitcase only sells high end brand names and typically only accepts clothing less than 2-3 years old. This makes it the perfect place for someone who wants to sport name brands like Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, and Gucci without having to sink the equivalent of a car payment into their style.

If Alexis Suitcase has an opposite, it would be Rag-O-Rama. With two locations in Atlanta and Sandy Springs, Rag-O-Rama is less interested in high fashion than in edgy vintage looks, making it a hub for fashion conscious millennial shoppers looking for vintage styles to stand out in a crowd. They also boast a large supply of themed party wear, from wigs and jewelry to ugly Christmas sweaters. But don’t take that to mean they’ll accept anything. Rag-O-Rama’s website proudly proclaims that they buy approximately 10 percent of the clothing brought to them, making for a carefully curated experience for a specific brand of shopper.
