Rough day at Beacons closet. I have been a regular visitor of Beacons Closet since they opened their doors a few years ago near my abode in Chelsea. Other than the occasionally dismissive floor person attitude (as depicted in Broad City) I've traded there and shopped there many times without incident. Until today. Today, I was so rudely treated I dare never step foot in that store again sans an apology. I hadn't found anything to my liking and thought the spree a wash until I happened upon a designer bag I favored. As I waited while my friend tried on clothes, a shop girl approached me saying did I find that bag over there. Without really realizing where she was pointing or why she was asking, I said yeah. She proceeded to say that the bag I had was on hold for another customer. Realizing, I told her that it hadn't been on hold, I had found it on the floor. This is where things went awry. Instead of acknowledging that OK, yes maybe it wound up on the floor but it was supposed to be on hold and would I concede it back to the other customer, she commenced to insinuate that I had not found the bag where I said I had. She did this several times. Now, I could care less about the bag, I was too shocked that this disrespectful employee was questioning my integrity and disregarding my offense as a customer to be in so many words accused of lying, publicly! By this point our exchange had become a confrontation and I was thoroughly offended by the level of disrespect. Other staff came near including the self described owner of the store, Beth Moon. She immediately supported her employee who had been completely wrong and offered more cattiness and dismissiveness. She did not care what happened or that I was upset. One employee suggested we view the video surveillance of which I said, Yes! Please, view the tape and then come back to me with an apology. I implored them to view the tape? Confirm that I had been telling the truth and acknowledge how rude and disrespectful it is to accuse someone of being dishonest? This is how you treat your customers? We are dispensible? By this point they were making jokes, snickering, demanding me to leave, denying any wrong doing. Of course they did not view the tape. I was so incensed by their ill treatment. Not even the store owner, Beth Moon (I came to look up on the website) offered any fair or balanced consideration. I promised I would write a letter to headquarters. She said, well I will look forward to your letter. So I am instead writing this letter to the internet, hopefully someone holds them accountable for their disrespect and disregard. How you treat people matters more than anything else in this world, I won't be disrespected without consequence. Beacons, you need a wake up call, you tout being an all female company based in Brooklyn yet your were horribly degrading to long time women customer, this coming from a true Native New Yorker. Unacceptable and supremely wack.

I purchased two items and online and received them in an incredibly timely manner. They're so affordable and fashionable; so, like, why not? I'm moving to New York soon and I look forward to regularly frequenting the store; but online will do for now. Thanks, BC! <3

As far as these types of stores go, it's decent. If you have the patience to rummage through the racks and potentially repair an item once you buy it, this is a good place to go. They're a bit stingy when you sell items to them, but it's still better than getting nothing for that old dress your grandmother left you.

For selling... it may be worth looking elsewhere. For designer brand pieces I go through high end services (and perhaps you do/would too!) since the commission is twice as much (60% or 70% of the resale price goes to you) than stores like Beacon's that take non-brand items. However since only specific upscale brand names are accepted at high end services, what to do with items to sell like cool pieces from Finder's Keeper's or an embellished crystal skirt with no tag? Or Lululemon, J. Crew, or anything that does not stem from a "high end" luxury name? For a while I went to Buffalo Exchange. It was fine. Whenever selling clothes (whether it's $2000 Louboutins or a $24 Gap Tee) I can experience some surprise sometimes at a low resale price. However I didn't realize how great Buffalo Exchange is until I went to Beacon's. Buffalo Exchange offers 30% of the resale price whereas Beacon's offers 35%... sounds good for Beacons, right? So I had to try it. Eek... sadly it did not quite work out so well. At Buffalo Exchange I average about $350 a trip (two suitcases). I went to Beacon's with 3 suitcases (1 more than usual) and was given a total of $86. It went from an average of $125 a bag to $28 a bag. I promptly took a cab right over to Buffalo Exchange with discarded items: I sold one, just one bag, for $135 that day at Buffalo Exchange, not to mention the other 2 bags (with items like a Paul & Joe dress from Net-a-porter to Old Navy sandals). I made several hundred dollars there with items Beacon's didn't want. ... My Buffalo Exchange average is based on around 10 visits with 2 suitcases. Beacon's doesn't yield a large sample size because it's based off of only one visit. Which should be taken into consideration. ... I'm afraid I was a bit put off not only by meager earnings, but I'm afraid several staff at Beacon's. 3 people went through my bags, with an additional 2 popping in thoughts. I got to experience 5 employees. It was odd: there was an outward veneer of "nice"- but I caught two staff members rolling their eyes when they saw a piece they didn't choose to buy. I once even caught a look of disgust followed by laughter. I got the general feeling of being unwelcome. One staff member frequently cut down the price (and my earnings) offered by other staff on pieces, and a couple times I caught the staff member looking me up and down (this is one of the eye rollers, perhaps unsurprisingly). So I asked how long they'd worked here. They answered "4 years." Eek. Not a great sign for the environment of the store. I stood there watching the rest of the buying, didn't engage, thanked them very much, shook a couple hands, and left... At Buffalo Exchange it's much more casual, non-judgmently, real. Which, it turns out, does not equal less money. The slightly more polished and more picky Beacon's seems to prove a lower going rate. With my experience I got 22% of the money I get at Buffalo Exchange. Needles to say, I now understand why fashion industry friends sell non-brand items at Buffalo Exchange only... it can seem just like an ok place, but now I realize Buffalo Exchange is my diamond in the rough!

I love shopping at Beacon's Closet. They always have the interesting pieces that you want in your closet. The sales team is really good about putting things up online with descriptions that match the product so you know what you are buying. Returns are hassle free!

I ordered a sweater online.It arrived in a timely manner and it was in excellent condition. I would recommend this store to anyone interested in vintage/designer fashion.

I have some great finds from Beacon's! Now that fall is approaching, I'll go back to get a nice coat-- they have lots and they're beautiful and well priced! Huge selection of different styles, but not always as high of quality as Buffalo Exchange or Crossroads. Tons of shoes too!
