Besides the fact that I’m totally geeking out over Garmentory’s site design, the concept is incredibly intriguing, and the selection of products/boutiques is really good:
Basically, Garmentory is a shopping site featuring smaller, independent boutiques & designers (yeah, that’s been done before…) but the kick is that the inventory is sale items and YOU control the pricing. Well, not entirely, but you make an offer on an item (limited sizes & colors are available, usually there’s only one of each item) and the boutique either accepts or rejects it. I’m assuming there’s some negotiation involved, but I love the idea.
You can shop by boutique, brand, or everything – here I chose to shop from Thistle & Clover, a boutique in Brooklyn, NY. Uh, that Ace & Jig dress has been on my mental wishlist all summer…
Here’s a look at more product details and how to “make an offer”:
They feature all the cool kids brands like Baggu, Ace & Jig, Demy Lee, Dace, Whit, Won Hundred, Rachel Comey, Rag & Bone, and there’s even some James Perse in there! Most of the boutiques are located in Canada, so I’m not sure what that means in terms of shipping, pricing, etc., but I’m sure more US-based boutiques will join over time. I seriously love everything about this site/concept and look forward to watching it grow.
What do you think about Garmentory’s concept? is this something you would try? Oh, and if you sign up for their emails by 10/5 you’ll be entered to win $500 to shop. Yes, please!
