Midtown and The Upper East Side

32. BIS Designer Resale

BIS Designer Resale (consignment) beautifully display top designer scarfs, handbags, shoes and women’s clothing.  Located a block east of the MET at 1134 Madison Avenue, you can shop by designer.  They’re all there.

33. Encore Resale

Directly next door is Encore Resale, known as this Country’s first consignment shop founded in 1954 by Florence Barry, who in 1982 sold the shop to the Selig family.  With over six decades of consignor relationships between them, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, they have racks and racks of designer clothing.  While we were there, several large cars pulled up and idled, while women quickly ran in and out with bundles of clothing draped over their arms.
