Sponsored content:\u00a0 Some businesses don\u2019t need to search for testimonials. While a reporter was recently talking with the staff of Upscale Resale at Nine Bailey \u2014 a women\u2019s designer clothing and accessories boutique that opened in mid-June \u2014 a woman on her way to work walked by and offered impromptu praise. \u201cI love your store,\u201d gushed the woman, who was wearing a royal blue Ralph Lauren dress she had purchased a few days prior at Upscale Resale. \u201cI\u2019m going to be doing all of my shopping here.\u201d Chances are she won\u2019t run out of choices. Housed in the former Chamber of Commerce office on Bailey Avenue, Upscale Resale offers a wide range of designer jeans, jackets, dresses, blouses, sweaters, jewelry, handbags, shoes, and boots \u2014 all at jaw-dropping discount prices. One example: A classy yet chic St. John sweater (zippered front with a checkerboard pattern of red brown and cream) originally listed at $575 and selling for $198. One label that doesn\u2019t apply to Upscale Resale is consignment. None of the items (some brand new; others gently worn) have been dropped off at the store for re-sale. Instead, the inventory is compiled from various approaches, including online buying. The general price range is $18 to $200, with some items between $200 and $400. In addition, Upscale Resale plans to have several sales each year, with those on the store\u2019s mailing list getting advance notice. Now stocking its fall\/winter collection, Upscale Resale\u2019s inventory features clothes from Akris, Anthropologie, Anne Klein, Armani, Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren, Banana Republic, J.Crew, and St. John; shoes from Manolo Blahnik, Stuart Weitzman, Ferragamo, and Lilly Pulitzer; boots from Frye; and handbags from Prada, Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, and Tory Burch. Jewelry items include a Longchamps bracelet. \u201cIf you shop here, you won\u2019t see another woman wearing what you are wearing,\u201d said store manager Danielle Melrose-Balasny. Although the ownership has a similar second-hand store named Coco\u2019s on the Green in Branford (now in its 10th year), Upscale Resale\u2019s inventory is selected with a Ridgefield clientele in mind. \u201cThe emphasis is on clothes that are stylish and also sophisticated,\u201d said Melrose-Balasny. \u201cMany of the women are fashion forward and professional.\u201d Another reason why ownership chose Ridgefield? Reputation. \u201cRidgefield is a town that works for small businesses,\u201d said Melrose-Balasny. \u201cIt\u2019s quaint and it\u2019s lovely but it also has a lot of passion and community involvement.\u201d Beyond the business aspect, Upscale Resale\u2019s ownership believes in the philosophy of fashion resale and recycling. \u201cWe know shopping second hand helps the world in some small way,\u201d reads a small white sign on the front door, \u201cand we\u2019re proud to be a part of that.\u201d Upscale Resale is currently open Monday through Saturday, from 10:30 to 5:30 each day. Stay Tuned: the store is planning to add Sunday hours. For more information, call 203-403-3067, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit ninebailey.com.
