DECHOES

At first glance, the hip consignment store seems to cater only to the under-30 and
indie crowds. But further inspection reveals a wider selection of clothes, with designer labels for men and women. (Second location at 2110 Edgewater Dr., Orlando.)
FAB FINDS: Betsey Johnson silver suede ankle booties for $24.99 (left), vintage 1950’s Hobe necklace for $34.99, and a limited-edition Sharon Stone Louis Vuitton bag for $999 (originally $1,820)
DESIGNER SECONDS
485 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland
This couture-style consignment boutique sells gently used, sometimes brand-new, women’s fashions and accessories by top-name designers. There’s always a 50-percent-off rack outside the store and other daily discount specials, too.
FAB FINDS: A black Armani dress for $175, with necklaces ranging $14-$16  (right), a brand-new zebra-print Dooney & Burke bag for $125 (originally $295), and a new Longchamp bag with original price tag ($762) for $495
ETOILE BOUTIQUE
2424 E Robinson St., Orlando
etoileboutique.com
Catering to men and women, the Milk District boutique offers vintage clothing and accessories and a wide assortment of handcrafted items made by local
artisans, including unique jewelry, home
décor items, candles and soaps.
FAB FINDS: Stylish ties for $6-$9 (left), a custom-made fedora for $24, a women’s 1970’s black jumper for $28, a Sears Fashions dress for $32, and a vintage suitcase for $62
TOP DRAWER CONSIGNMENTS
2500 Edgewater Dr., Orlando
topdrawerconsignments.com
This Art Deco-style College Park landmark sells second-hand upscale home furnishings—many in brand-new condition—and artwork. In the same building is Top Drawer Couture, a women’s consignment shop, where we found a mint-condition white-leather Marc Jacobs handbag for $305.
FAB FINDS: A golden glass bowl pendant chandelier for $177 (above), a colorful beaded throw pillow for $19.20, and a Maitland Smith Breakfront for $5,607 (originally $14,640)
ORLANDO VINTAGE
2117 W. Fairbanks Ave., Winter Park
orlandovintage.com
It’s the hottest place in town for high-quality vintage clothing and accessories for women and men. Orlando Vintage has contributed pieces to AMC’s  Mad Men, which is set in the 60s, and HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, a drama based on Prohibition-era organized crime. Merchandise is categorized by time period rather than by size.
FAB FINDS: Soft-teal Mad Men-style men’s suit (blazer and pants) for $195 (right), and a women’s emerald-green brocade skirt and jacket set for $79 (originally $138)
