After Alice Chan got laid off as a retail and product developer in the fashion industry she raided her closet and rallied her ex-coworkers and fashionista friends to help her stock the LES consignment shop, PPF Consignment. The store is definitely recession-friendly with a customer-rewards program (spend an accumulative $1,000, get $100 off your next purchase) or bring back the reusable shopping bags sold in the store for $9 to get 9% off whatever you buy. And there will be plenty that you’ll want to spend dough on, such as a black Chloe shoulder bag adorned with zippers for $499 (retails for $800); an unworn Marc Jacobs dress with silver, gray, gold and black metallic stripes for $99 (normally $800); Christian Louboutin patent-leather black-and-fuchsia 3.5-inch cork wedges, size 7.5 for $399 (originally $850); and Devi Kroell size 8 beige python boots, $309 (were $3,000).
