The Closet Exchange was featured yesterday, February 18th, in the Bargain Bin section of The Boston Globe (Lifestyle).
Here’s what the Globe’s Contributor, Ami Albernaz, wrote about Closet Exchange:
MORE CONSIGNMENT STORES
We mentioned a couple of consignment shops last week, and in the meantime, stopped by the Closet Exchange, a trio of consignment stores in Needham. A high-end arm features Chanel, Dior, and Burberry, among others; a “Best of the Mall’’ store has J.Crew, Banana Republic, and the like; a “Last Chance’’ store has items marked down at least 50 percent. On our visit, finds at the “Last Chance’’ store included an adorable Gap gray baby doll dress for $15 and a new-with-tags Ann Taylor embroidered skirt for $16.50 (retail price: $108). The mall store had DKNY, Lucky Brand, and Christopher Blue jeans for around $28-$44 and a nice selection of jackets and blazers. The Closet Exchange is at 906, 925, and 931 Great Plain Ave., Needham.

2)Still all one color–long straight pants with a heel or tall boot, tunic top that falls straight from the shoulder to mid thigh. Try a low slung belt or great earrings for zip! Eileen Fisher makes some great tunics, so do Whim, Inc, and 3 Dot.
3)Again–all one color from top to bottom, then add a vest (hides the muffin-top) or an open mid-thigh length coat or sweater (this piece can be a pattern or another color). Theory, Banana Republic, Eileen Fisher, Vertigo, and BCBG all make pretty and
These tricks really do work–they let you feel comfortable and stylish even though you are a little fluffier than you like to be. The Closet Exchange is here for you–to make you smile, to find the perfect piece you need, to make your life a little simpler and stress-free!
