One person’s rubbish (the Brits even make
trash sound fancy) is another’s treasure —
how apropos! Are you in the market for savvy
fashion finds but panting and worried over
staying within a budget? Why of course, this is
Miami, where looking the part is as important
as being it. That’s where consignment haven
The Recycled Closet comes in.

Just east of The Falls you’ll find a welcoming hello from
Jennifer Vosters Kaloti and her college-aged sidekick that
mans the front desk at boutique consignment store The
Recycled Closet. They love all things fashion and are quick
to find you just what you need, for half the price, for that
party, date or even a ball — ah, welcome to the crossroads
of vintage & thrift. Everything is neatly organized by color
and item type. It’s basically a thrift shop for the fabulous,
with brands like BCBG, Betsey Johnson, Free People,
The French Connection and Prada, among others. They
specialize in premium trend labels and everything in the
store looks brand spanking new — with an extra spanking
on the new. The Recycled Closet opened its doors in 2008,
and today has more than 1,000 consigners and counting.
You can shop for a unique rehabilitated piece (meaning
they poured on the love and gave it new life) or become
a consigner yourself. It works in the traditional way; the
product must sell in order to receive the 40% earnings.
Either way it’s a win-win for the fashion forward, 13843 S.
