Butterflies attract our attention because they represent an array of colors and eye-catching wing designs. They are gentle in nature and evolved through a process of shedding from their original form of a moth.

Discovering the Butterfly Consignment upscale ladies’ boutique, located just a few blocks east of Castleton Square with their advertised theme of “Where Fashion Has Evolved,” really connects to this observation. In the “word-of-mouth” trail, shoppers have discovered a place where fashionistas gather.

Butterfly Consignment has a spectacular selection of designer quality apparel, handbags, shoes, jewelry, perfumes and accessories in a variety of styles (casual to formal) and sizes (juniors, misses and plus sizes). An almost daily restocking of new items has garnered the attention of store regulars who love the opportunity to buy expensive finds, but pay much less for Butterfly’s too-good-to-be-true merchandise.

Niquelle Allen is a butterfly in her own rite. Allen has evolved academically, professionally and creatively over the past 15 years, and her wings are in full span. As an attorney, mediator, entrepreneur and self-ascribed closet consultant, her passions flutter together in harmony. She owns Butterfly Consignment and is a practicing attorney.

So what is a bit different about Butterfly Consignment?

“Butterfly Consignment is a business where a person can Save money with affordable pre-loved fashions. Make money as a consignor. Recycle their wardrobe for the good of the environment, as well as Give money to support a favorite charity, cause or local organization,” Allen states.

“I also believe that because we offer three types of quality merchandise: Pre-loved (gently used), N Love (unsold new inventory from local boutiques) and, Made with Love, which includes handmade jewelry, handbags, headbands, soaps, body butter, knit creations and greeting cards, we provide an inviting, fun and, unique shopping experience atmosphere for our customers. There’s nothing fun about merchandise that is messy or aisles that are hard to navigate. Our customers are savvy shoppers who love the variety of our merchandise. Over and over, they have shared with me that they love coming to a store that sets the tone for their own unique shopping experience,” she adds.

So if you’re looking for a new stop to add to your shopping adventures, Butterfly Consignment is sure to please and worth the short drive away from the big box stores with expensive prices. P.S.
