Cynthia's Consignments

Cynthia Hodgkins' store has become one of the go to places to score amazing designer deals in Chicago. So you can imagine our excitement in partnering with her. We interviewed Cynthia to share with you why she is such an awesome addition to our site.

Why did you decide to get into the luxury consignment business?

I’ve been in the business for over 22 years and started because of my interest in fashion and because there was a need for a boutique specializing in luxury goods at affordable prices.

Because of the numerous designer flagship stores in Chicago, Chanel, Hermes, Gucci and Prada just to name a few, the city’s residents are some of the most fashion forward women, always up to date on the season’s hottest trends. We sell online and in our Lincoln Park boutique, which ensures that consignors get the most for their pieces. We also wanted to bring some of the best designer apparel and accessories to our clients, enabling them to purchase high-end goods at a fraction of the original cost. Consigning with Cynthia’s is a win-win situation. We offer designer merchandise at affordable prices while cleaning out the most fashionable closets in Chicago.

How does your modeling experience help you with the store?

Modeling puts you in the pulse of Chicago fashion and keeps you connected with top designers.

The beauty of consignment is that each piece you sell has a story. What is your favorite story behind something you sold?

Sorry we’re hush-hush when it comes to our consignors and client base ;)

What is the curation process like for you?

At Cynthia’s we focus on the designer, the season and collection and it is crucial that our pieces are in mint condition.
