For the past couple of months, I always get an e-mail from Fia's Fabulous Finds about their VIP Fill a Bag for $20 Basement Sale. Each and every time, I make a mental note to go but then something or another comes up
(And that would be just me being lazy). This time around, I finally got the chance to go. It also helps that it's pretty close to my workplace.
Fia's Fabulous Finds is an upscale consignment boutique offering quality brand name ladies' clothing and accessories. These items are gently used but in impeccable condition. From outside, it looks fairly small but once you enter inside you'll see three fairly sizable rooms filled with clothing, shoes, and accessories. There is also a dressing room. And, of course, the basement where the Fill a Bag for $20 event is usually held.
I had the opportunity of chatting with Fia who, despite being heavily pregnant, was all energy and smiles. She's very passionate about vintage, a hobby that soon became her livelihood. While she is a boutique owner, she's also an event planner on the side.
This will not be the last time I visit Fia's Fabulous Finds. I did manage to cop a few items at the event that I'm pretty sure you'll see on this blog fairly soon. The only bummer about Fia's is the lack of plus size items. The sizes it currently offers is 0-16, XS-XXL. And even the size 16s/XXLs were few and far between. I asked her why this was the case and she explained that she looks hard for plus size items but has yet to find any that's a good fit for her store. She's definitely open to plus size customers bringing in their current, gently used items so she can have a look. And if she likes what she sees, she'll buy it from you! I mean, Fia's Fabulous Finds is a consignment store, after all.
