Frugalista alert! We’ve noticed several consignment shops opening around town — perfect for the shopper who likes quality, and sometimes designer, clothes and accessories but can’t or won’t pay full price. It’s also good for anyone with clothes to get rid of — bring ’em in and get some cash for them. We have yet to check out any of the shops, but we’re planning a frugaspree this weekend.

Sunny’s Consignments is located in the Shoppes at Seaside Farms in Mt. Pleasant, near Target. They offer clothing and accessories, furniture, gifts and more. Call them at (843) 856-6962 for more info.

Butterfly Women’s Consignment Boutique, also in Mt. Pleasant, is a sister store of Victoria’s Consignments. Their grand opening is on Saturday, Jan. 31, featuring giveaways and champagne. They specialize in designer labels with names like BCBG, Diesel, Gucci, Badgley Mischka, Tory Burch, Max Mara, and many more.

UPDATE: Classifieds account exec and bargain shopper extraordinaire Shelby Tamres tipped us off to South Carolina Thrift and Resale, which recently opened at 17N and Mathis Ferry Road in Mt. P. This philanthropically-minded thrift store will in part benefit the Center for Women. They’re now accepting all kinds of donations. Call (843) 530-5569 for more info.

UPDATE II: Consign Charleston is another new shop in West Ashley, at 1119 Wappoo Road, in the Ashley Oaks Shopping Plaza. They’re having their first open house sale on Sat. Feb. 21 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Everything in the store will be on sale. Their # is (843) 225-9055.
