There are so many things to love about consignment shopping, the most important is being able to find some amazing designer pieces for a fraction of the designer cost. Orange Bay Company is exactly that: amazing selection for amazing prices. Orange Bay Company consignment store has some of the most unique home furnishings and accessories; where customers include both buyers and sellers of gently-used fine furniture, accessories and clothing.

I personally love everything about how Orange Bay works and I’m also personally a consigner myself. I take all sorts of items here; barely worn, some times not even worn once or items I have no more need for that are still in great condition that just need a better home and to be worn by the right person who’s going to love it to bits!
“When you consign an item, we display it in our showroom for up to 90 days where it can be viewed by hundreds of potential buyers. When the piece is sold, you will receive 50% of the proceeds. We’ll work with you to establish an appropriate, initial price for your item. If, after 30 days, the item has not sold, we’ll drop the price by 15%. After 60 days, we’ll drop it a further 15%.” – Orange Bay Company
The great thing about Orange Bay Company is that they stage your items, heightening the buying potential.Being a good thrift hunter involves anything but luck. Sometimes it takes a couple misses before you find an incredible hit! One of my hobbies happens to involve scouring Orange Bay Company, looking for unique finds and vintage pieces like some I loved finding during my day at Orange Bay Company. The act of ‘fashion treasure hunting’, I live for it! Sometimes it takes some time and a real hunt but the deals and the chance of finding a really original piece are so worth it! I was so excited when I was given the privilege of collaborating with Orange Bay Company and to be the first of a new monthly social media feature they have started; and what a great idea it is! I was able to style some of my favorite finds currently stocked at their store! Orange Bay Company is such a well organized company, and with exceptional staff it was so much fun spending the day with them. Together we rounded up some amazing pieces, both vintage and contemporary in order to put together some truly unique outfits. We made sure to incorporate 2016’s current trends.

– I find personally that some times wearing a bold color like red can be tricky, the key is to keeping it more minimal. Let the color speak for itself! That’s why I tend to wear reds within my accessories or a cheeky red lip to brighten up an outfit.
Orange Bay Company is definitely one of my favorite places to shop because it’s so well curated. They do such a good job selecting designer clothing items where each piece is hand selected for quality and condition. A real community favorite! Orange Bay Company offers a great variety of styles and sizes in clothing and accessories that makes it so easy to suit anyone’s personal style. I was able to find so many bits that could easily fit in with my personal wardrobe as well as styles that are currently trending this new year! So I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite current trends when I was styling with Orange Bay Company. From the apparent increasing khaki and nude everything trend, knotted neck scarfs, flattering flares, mustard yellow hues, classic oversized sweaters and one of my must haves, boyfriend jeans!

They were such an amazing deal that I was so excited to find, they are my ideal vintage find and the perfect fit, I just couldn’t leave them behind! $300 uniquely vintage loafers for under $30 what a find!
The idea of shopping discount stores, will at most times, receive negative connotations. This is why I was eager to show people the amazing really cool stuff you can find (as long as you really look). Ever since I can remember I’ve had an infatuation with vintage shopping/thrifting. Orange Bay Company is visually merchandised so well that it’s almost impossible to not find some thing you will love. You may even end up filling a gap in your wardrobe with a classic staple or a unique find. Oh and did I forget to mention that they constantly replenish their $5 Deals rack. Here is where you can find so many high end designers like I’ve featured at just $5; crazy! So don’t forget to stop by the shop soon!
