Le Thrift

Is your closet ready for spring? Is your wallet low in cash? Here's a solution: Le Thrift, a mod, upscale Chicago consignment shop, will help you sell your own duds while scoring new ones. Having just expanded into its newest location at 1821 W. Chicago Ave in Ukrainian Village, Le Thrift is the perfect spot to spring shop for designer clothing and accessories while sticking to a budget.

Here's how it works: Call for an appointment at 312-912-9676, then bring all those designer duds that no long fit or work with your style into Le Thrift for consignment. When an items sells, Le Thrift keeps 60% of the sale and you receive 40%. Le Thrift also offers complimentary pick ups in the Chicago and metro area of 10 items for consignement or more.

While you're there, enjoy shopping for brands like Chanel, Prada, Tory Burch and more - all at deeply discounted prices. You'll also find a sweet selection of vintage accessories and clothing.

"My mission is for women to be able to enjoy fashion on any budget," explains owner Christine Sanderson. "To me, style is all about mixing pieces from higher end to lower end and creating a unique look that no one else is wearing; to enjoy higher quality made items for a fraction of the cost. We sell everything from name brands like Anthropologie to J.Crew to higher end labels like Chanel and Gucci. It is important that not only my customers, but also my consignors, are treated with respect and the best possible customer service we can offer."

If you need help choosing just the right dress or our outfit for an upcoming occasion, Christine and her staff are always on hand to provide you with some styling advice (Check out the hilarious 10 Signs That You Should Hire a Le Thrift Stylist for a Wardrobe Makeover). Roomy dressing rooms and the bright space, together with the staff's honest opinions, make trying on clothing at Le Thrift a positive experience.

"I'm excited about the new location because it is so much larger than our old location; we can offer more variety, more products - parking is much better at our new location, too." I'll add another bonus to the Le Thrift's newest address: it's located across the street from Hoosier Mama Pie Company - so you can celebrate your shopping wins with a slice of homemade apple pie a la mode afterwards.
