It can be so thrilling to shop at consignment stores because they offer more of the thrill of the hunt than traditional retail stores. Shoppers can search for limited edition items, rare finds or that special Dior handbag from eight seasons back. Vintage shopping never goes out of style because there are so many collections of truly beautiful designs to discover. Shoppers looking for newer items can even find new season items in store, so they really offer something for everyone. These five South Florida shops offer top styles for men, women and teens from casual brands such as Abercrombie to designer labels such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Prada.
