The Real Real Opened a Real Store (in NYC)
We all love the ease of consigning and purchasing with The Real Real but sometimes the fit or finish is not what you expected. The returns are easy enough and when I heard they were opening a brick and mortar shop I thought, why?
The shop at 80 Wooster Street in Soho exceeded all of my expectations. Clearly they only display items in mint condition, but that filled a large boutique. A passerby would never guess that this was a store filled with pre-owned merchandise but rather a high end outpost of Barneys. But you can often find items that haven't even hit traditional retail stores like the Chanel 2017 Cruise Collection ankle straps below. Here are a few of the items you might find in stock.
