17th Ave’s Consignment Shopping

Designer brands and high end fashion don’t always have to break the bank. Shopping at 17th Ave’s consignment boutiques, clothing exchanges and thrift stores is a savvy way to find brands and styles you love for less. The best part is, second hand shopping, thrifting and buying pre-loved gear is one of the most sustainable and ecologically friendly ways to shop. It’s a win-win –  you get discounted, high-end styles, and you also inadvertently reduce your ecological foot print at the same time. Here’s our list of 17th Ave’s consignment shops you need to check out today.

Danielle’s Consignment

Danielle Hadden has spent the last 25 years carefully curating a selection of previously owned high-end and designer clothing in near new condition for fashionable Calgarians. Find designer brands such as Wilfred, Free People, AGOLDE, Herschel and more in dresses, denim, footwear, and accessories – all listed at affordable, accessible prices. If you are interested in contributing some of your gently used, high-end gear to their collection, you can consign with them and receive 40 % of the selling price by bringing apparel that is less than two years old, is trendy, and seasonal.
