THE SHOP
Find Your Fashion Again is the new kid on the block. Located in the Grocery Outlet Center in Ferndale, Wash., this 6-month old consignment shop offers a new twist on an old shopping favorite. Shoppers can bring in their used clothes and receive credits toward future purchases, which can be used at either Find Your Fashion Again or their sister store Find Your Fashion. This innovative system allows shoppers to clean out their closets and revamp their wardrobes at the same time, guilt-free. What really sets Find Your Fashion Again apart from other consignment shops is that shoppers can use credits for both new and used clothing.

Their first store, Find Your Fashion is now 3 1/2 years oldn and can be found in Ferndale, near the Ferndale Station. Unlike Find Your Fashion Again, they sell new merchandise. So many customers asked them to sell consignment clothing and merchandise that they decided to sell consignment in the back of the store. The idea was such a hit that they decided to create a new store where they could sell just their consignment items.

Their customer base stretches all over the county, from Blaine, to Birch Bay, to Lynden and other cities in between,
including Canadian shoppers who wish to escape Bellinghamn traffic.

ATMOSPHERE
Intimate, well-appointed boutique.

KEY PEOPLE
Barb Scoggins is the owner of Find your Fashion and Find Your Fashion Again. She always wanted to open up her own boutique, though she wanted to call it Barbie’s Boutique at first. After working in construction and working for herself, Scoggins decided to bite the bullet and open up her own boutique, Find Your Fashion. Her father said that she should sell consignment, and once her customers started telling her the same thing, she decided to branch out, creating her consignment boutique: Find Your Fashion Again. Scoggins hopes to expand Find Your Fashion Again soon. She also plans on moving Find Your Fashion next door to Find Your Fashion Again once the lease ends in the spring of 2015, allowing the stores to be physically accessible to shoppers and easier to shop at both boutiques.

WHAT YOU’LL FIND
Whether you’re hunting for bargains for kids, women or men’s clothing or looking to score some home décor pieces Find Your Fashion Again has something for everyone. They carry clothing from sizes extra small to 3X. Their shop is stocked with shoes, purses, accessories, jewelry and home décor.

Scoggins compares the service at Find Your Fashion and Find Your Fashion Again to service a customer would receive at Bloomingdales. They offer personal assistance for the flustered shopper by providing guidance for great gift ideas and help with putting outfits together

OWNER’S FAVORITE
Scoggins loves designer jeans, especially when she finds them for a great price in her consignment shop because like many people, she says she can’t always afford or doesn’t want to spend a lot of money on a pair of jeans.

She also loves coats, jackets and purses because they are an easy way to spritz up any outfit. Her favorite brand is INC, which Find Your Fashion Again carries a lot of.
