Several years ago Philly emptied out of places to find good vintage and pre loved clothing at a fair price. So it is nice to see that Once Worn has all three of those ingredients. The shop is organized but with a touch of “jammed packness” which let’s face it makes you feel more acomplished when you find that perfect thing. My favorite number is a shiny- poly number with the label Taurus Nights. It was the perfect ” Oh Shut-up” moment to my Thursday afternoon. If Taurus Nights is not enough of a reason to head in maybe the fact that the NL neighborhood is chalked full of Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie employees that horde and then purge to make room for more and Once Worn is where they do it. But really the first one to snatch up those “hot mama” nude patent leather Miu Mius is the winner in my book.
I have consigned here and had a great experience. The owner Jen is organized, reliable and on the ball. When you drop off your stuff she checks it out right away and then e-mails you if she found any issues on her second check of the good. I stopped consigning at on South Street because I actually find them rude, slow and there is no parking and I often wind up with parking tickets…meaning it has cost me money. I would recommend Once Worn as a great place to consign. Moms there is one big step in the door but owner Jen is happy to help you.
