I’ve always loved the corner of Walnut and King. It’s home to some beautiful old buildings that are in great condition, well maintained, and in the recent past have previously been vacant. However…
Last fall I was over the moon to see the consignment shop MODify Your Closet open up right on that block. I remember the very day it opened it because I basically ran right in. The physical store space itself is gorgeous. Owner Melanie McArthur and store manager Ally Amato renovated the space themselves stripping it back down to it’s bare bones -original wood floors, and tin 14 foot high ceilings. Pretty much restoring the 100 year old+ building to it’s primordial state.
MYC now carries men’s wear too along with a great selection of carefully selected men’s & women’s shoes, clothes, vintage ties, with a huge collection of women’s accessories from hats, scarves and belts down to clutches and purses.
I regularly peak in and peruse the choice selection of vintage and gently used designer finds. With every season change the ladies at MYC put on some fantastic sales of up to 50-70% off nearly everything in the store. I’ve found some amazing steals, and will boast my purchase of 2 denim rompers (because 1 is never enough!), a super cute red and white polka-dot shirt and an adorably sexy black dress ALL for a total of $48!
Another recent addition to the collection of great finds at this store is the vintage pyrex cookware. Love it!
