Portsmouth’s High End Consignment Boutique Hosts Fashion Show


Portsmouth's premier upscale consignment retailer Second Time Around is hosting its first fashion show on Thursday, October 20th from 6:00 PM-10:00 PM entitled, "The Edge of Glory." The show will feature seasonal, edgy haute couture looks - straight from the racks of Second Time Around. Styled by manager and consignment enthusiast Molly Shea, approximately 20 looks will head down the runway and will all be on sale following the event. In addition, the 2011 Miss New Hampshire winner, Regan Hartley, will be modeling several high-end fashions from the STA collection.

The event is sponsored by local partners; restaurants Brazzo and The Flatbread Company, as well as the Portsmouth Spa.

Based in New England, Second Time Around (STA) is a high-end consignment company that carries new and almost-new designer clothing and accessories. Since opening its flagship Massachusetts shop in 1973, the budget-friendly fashion empire has grown to include 26 stores in some of the country's hippest shopping districts.  

Second Time Around carries the most coveted and current designer pieces that are always seasonal and on trend - clothing, scarves, fine and costume jewelry, handbags, belts, shoes, sunglasses, and more. With 50,000 active consignors and a constant influx of new merchandise, the boutique's inventory changes hourly so Second Time Around promises to never be the same place twice.

To consign items, clients call a STA location near them and schedule an appointment. Items are priced at 65%-70% off their original retail value and are placed on sale for a 90-day period, wherein consignors receive 40% of the final selling price. Articles of clothing must be of a current style, seasonally appropriate and generally no older than two years. In addition articles should be in new or like-new condition and freshly dry-cleaned or laundered.

Recently premiered on Bravo, Second Time Around is the focus of the season's hottest new reality television show, "Fashion Hunters," airing Tuesdays at 10:30 ET/PT. The show follows the fashionistas of Second Time Around's New York City Mott Street location as they go out searching the attics, closets and garages of the city's elite. Far from the land of thrift, the hip shop makes dreams come true for shoppers looking for designer fashions on a budget. In the show, the Second Time Around team interacts with demanding customers from savvy socialites to downtown hipsters looking to sell back or buy their next great "get."

Second Time Around's Edge of Glory fashion show will be held at 19 Congress Street in Portsmouth, NH. For more details, photography or to attend the event, please contact All Heart PR at [email protected] or 305.984.4496.
