The Clothes Mine was originally a small tourist town store. It operated in Golden, Colorado for nearly 10 years. I bought it in 2018, planning on continuing the tradition of a tiny consignment store in a bustling tourist town. In 2019, I opened the Wheat Ridge store to better handle the intake of consignment and offer more selection to locals, while hand picking certain items for the Golden "baby" store.
And then COVID changed everything.
Tourism dried up and maintaining two stores through a pandemic became - well - frightening. In June 2020 I "downsized" into the larger Wheat Ridge location and focused on getting through the pandemic on my own (but I soooo miss my staff and it broke my heart to let them go).
My store carries a range of styles and fashions and is not dictated by a brand list. If I really really like something - I'm taking it. That may be an acid-wash jumper from the 80s or a Target shirt. I like it, it's in good shape, it gets a chance at a new life.
WHERE TO FIND ME...IN PERSON
The Clothes Mine physically is located at 4300 Kipling in Wheat Ridge, Colorado just off the I70 (Kipling and 44th is the closest intersection).
The store is a bright and spacious 3,000 sq ft of women's fashion and accessories, a smaller selection of men's clothing and accessories (I need more men consignors!), and home decor. And me!
It has lots of space for social distancing (or avoiding me), a hand sanitizing station at the front door and the checkout, and open wide aisles to move around.
WHERE TO FIND ME...ONLINE
YouTube! - I’ve moved to posting my videos on YouTube. You can subscribe and get my weekly “what just came in” by signing up for the newsletter, following the Just In blog, or subscribing on Facebook. I post the weekly videos on Tuesday night - and this is your sneak peek, as everything goes out on the floor Wednesday morning to the Just In rack by the front door. As things are getting busier post-COVID I suggest if you like something, pounce on it fast!
Facebook - I‘m no longer as present on Facebook (I never really was that present). I’ve switched my Lives to in-house videos that I then host on YouTube (see above). This has allowed me to expand my audience by sending to those of us who do not go on Facebook. You can still get the weekly video on Facebook - it’s just no longer live.
Instagram - My Instagram focuses on one-of-a-kind items and my hand picked best of the best! I do my best to post just in items regularly so you have the latest and greatest or just sometimes my "eek, I love this" posts.
Poshmark - Some things end up on the Poshmark closet @TheClothesMine. Again - this will be a different assortment - including some men's and home decor.
Online Shop - You're here! No link needed! This site is slowly morphing into a curated selection of my favorites. Posting to the online store takes a lot of time and energy - so I am saving that investment for the items I really am passionate about.
Email Newsletter - You can sign up for my weekly just in emails and my incredibly sporadic and inconsistent email newsletter on the home page of this site or click the link and send me an email.
