The Ultimate Guide To D.C. Consignment Shopping

UPDATE: This story was originally published on March 7, 2012. Since we're heading into a sunny weekend, we're giving you a refresher course on where to get the best secondhand style steals in the District and beyond.
Want to know one of our sartorial points of pride? We've almost never (and we mean ever) paid full-price for anything. Call us cheapskates if you must, but it's true — we know a good deal when we see one, and we know where to find it, too.
And (naturally), we love spreading the wealth to our friends. Since we consider you one of our nearest and dearest, we've concocted a little cheat sheet to help you find the best style scoops at some of our favorite consignment stores in the area. Peep our road map to some seriously chic (and in some cases, totally under-the-radar) treasure troves in the District, Maryland, and Virginia. Trust us — these are anything but sloppy seconds.
