Exciting news from The WearHouse! Our boutique is currently brimming with fabulous finds, so we are now exclusively accepting fall merchandise. We are no longer taking summer items, but if you have unique fall pieces, we’d love to see them!

Additionally, we have a wonderful selection of costume jewelry, but we are always on the lookout for one-of-a-kind estate pieces. Bring in your special treasures, and let’s make this fall season truly spectacular at The WearHouse!



Welcome to Second Story, Albuquerque's premier consignment Boutique, where excellence, quality, and style are our top priorities. If you're already familiar with the exceptional standards of Gee Loretta!, then you'll know that our commitment to excellence extends to our consignment offerings as well. Join us as we delve into the world of Second Story and discover how last season's styles can transform into someone else's treasures.

Selling with Second Story:
We are delighted to buy your quality clothing, shoes, and accessories and offer them for sale in our WearHouse Boutique. Visit us every Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm to explore our curated collection. Our team carefully examines each item you bring, determining its potential for resale. We'll then email or text you an invoice detailing the items we're interested in and their respective values. You have the choice to accept or decline our offer. If you accept, you'll receive a credit at Gee Loretta - an added bonus! Alternatively, we can issue a check if you prefer.

Drop-off Details:
You can conveniently bring your items to Gee Loretta during our store hours, Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm. Our dedicated team is ready to assist you and guide you through the process.

Preparing Your Items:
To ensure a smooth evaluation process, please make sure your clothes are clean, pressed, and placed on hangers. We accept items in "new" or "like new" condition, free from wrinkles, stains, pet hair, or missing buttons. If you're a smoker, we kindly request that you air out or dry clean your items before bringing them in. Remember, the better your items look, the higher the offer we can make!

Items We Accept:
At Second Story, we have a keen eye for fashion and appreciate styles that are in excellent condition, ensuring that our customers find only the best in our Boutique. We prioritize unique and high-quality pieces that stand out from the crowd. 
In addition to contemporary fashion, we have a soft spot for fun and fabulous vintage pieces. If you have vintage fashion treasures that are still in great shape and have stood the test of time, we would love to see them. Vintage fashion adds a touch of nostalgia and character to our collection, making it even more diverse and exciting for our discerning clientele.

Donations and Giving Back:
If we determine that some of your items are not suitable for resale, you can let us know whether you'd like them returned or donated. Donated items find a new purpose at the Annex, a local boutique we helped establish to support women reentering the workforce. Nancy and Joy, the amazing ladies behind the Annex, help us match previously loved fashion with someone who will give them a Second Story.

Specialty Items and GeeLuxe:
For valuable designer items such as Louis Vuitton handbags, Chanel scarves, or diamond studs, our expert, Emilia, steps in. She will thoroughly research the value of the item and reach out to you to discuss pricing and the percentage paid to you upon its sale.
