When I first started working at The Perfect Pair, I told Wanda that someday we need to offer clothing, knowing it would be a great addition to the store! Several months later, I proposed the idea again with the plan to focus on upscale and vintage clothing consignment. Wanda, always ready for a new project, responded, “Let’s do it and call it The Closet!”
The hallway between The Warehouse and The Showroom has always been a “catch all” and never had a defined purpose. A high traffic avenue through the store, this muddled walkway seemed to be the PERFECT spot for our venture into fashion!
The original thought was to paint just one wall, but one wall morphed into three and soon we were using wall paper to create a faux tin ceiling and rolling out some new carpet too.
Staying true to The Perfect Pair philosophy to reuse and repurpose, the “new” fixtures for The Closet came right from the store and salvage area; including doors, ladders, chairs, headboards and even a baby crib!
The Perfect Pair Crew had so much fun working together to transform the space and we are PERFECTLY excited to open The Closet to you!
The Closet will offer upscale, vintage clothing and accessories. Keep us in mind for prom and homecoming season. If you are interested in consigning at The Closet, please contact the store!
