Article Consignment Boutique – An Elevated Thrift Shopping Experience in East Sacramento


Located near H Street in the heart of East Sacramento, you can find the two Article Consignment Boutique stores located side by side. This long-standing family business has been a go-to spot for local fashion lovers. With its curated collection of pre-loved designer pieces, this boutique transcends traditional retail experiences, offering a unique blend of luxury and affordability.

While the majority of second hand shopping experiences mean that you need to sort through many racks to find the true gems, at Article Consignment Boutique every piece of clothing, accessories and jewelry has been deliberately selected for it’s quality and on-trend style. It’s very difficult to leave this store without a long wishlist of your new must-have fashion staples!

Two Stores with Two Incredible Fashion Selections

As mentioned above, Article Consignment Boutique has two storefronts in the same East Sacramento shopping center. While both are exclusively stocked with only high-quality brands, one store has everyday high-end mall styles and the second is filled with luxury designer brands.

In the first store you’ll find my favorites such as: Lululemon activewear, Everlane, Patagonia, Johnny Was, Madewell, Free People, Anthropologie and so many more. In the second luxury location, you can shop for fashion heavy hitters such as: Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Balenciaga, Kate Spade, Manolo Blahnik, Prada and the list goes on.

Keep in mind, at both locations you are shopping gently used (or new) clothing and accessories for a fraction of the original retail price. By giving a second life to designer items, the boutique champions eco-conscious fashion practices, allowing customers to indulge in luxury without compromising. This ethos not only resonates with the environmentally-conscious consumer but also fosters a sense of community and conscientiousness within Sacramento’s fashion scene.

Friendly Staff and Stand Out Customer Service

At the helm of this family-owned business you’ll find husband and wife team Abe and Val Sanchez. They are joined by a friendly and dedicated team who are experts at providing superb customer service and attention to their loyal customers. If you read the Article Consignment Boutique online Google reviews, you’ll see so many rave reviews about both the quality of the product selection and outstanding customer service.

While we currently live in an era where great customer service feels like something from the past, Article Consignment Boutique shines as rare treat for shoppers to feel well taken care of and appreciated.

Selling consignment fashion is a great way to clean out your closet and give new life to clothing and accessories that have been collecting dust.

An Interview with Article Consignment Boutique Owners

On the Sacramento Love blog we have the Small Business Spotlight series dedicated to supporting local small businesses. Since Article Consignment Boutique is a Sacramento-based company, we would love to tell the story behind their brand and products.

Store owners Abe and Val spent some time with me and answered our interview questions to tell the story of their brand and business.

What inspired you to start Article Consignment Boutique?

From the beginning Abe had a passion for quality fashion and we dreamt of owning our own boutique. We were introduced to the concept of consignment at a time in our lives where we were looking to make a career change that would allow us to spend more time with our daughter. We decided to take the leap of faith and our dream came true. Little did we know our second daughter (who we named Faith) would arrive the following year.

What you love about the Sacramento community?

East Sacramento in particular is very small-business supportive. There are many great parks, restaurants, coffee shops, and businesses with unique personalities and experiences. And many places are within walking or biking distance. We have some customers who drive several hours to shop with us and enjoy grabbing coffee or lunch while they are in the neighborhood.

What makes Article Consignment Boutique special?

First and foremost our legacy is our exceptional customer service. Our goal is for every person to leave our store feeling better than when they walked in. We truly enjoy assisting our clients in finding the next treasure and helping them sell treasures they no longer need. Clients buying and selling luxury especially appreciate working directly with our co-founder Abe. That type of service can’t be found in chains and franchises. Secondly we have always had a passion for ensuring that everything we sell is in great condition and authentic. We have a multi-step process to select the best of the best and use numerous tools and sources to ensure that everything you purchase at Article is the real deal.

What challenges have you faced, and how did the Sacramento community help you through it?

Balancing a family alongside entrepreneurship is a constant juggling act. We are very open and honest with our clients and we are so grateful for the grace they’ve given us when we’ve needed it. For example we’ve lost several family members over the past few years and our clients have been very patient when our processing takes longer than expected. And we try to maintain store hours that will also allow us to spend time with our kids which means we’re not open 24/7. Our best customers support our priorities and make a point to visit when we’re open or take advantage of our robust website and entertaining live selling videos on social media.

Where can shoppers find Article Consignment Boutique?

We have 2 side-by-side boutiques in East Sacramento at 706 56th Street. We also list nearly everything in our store on our website: and we conduct live selling videos on Facebook and Instagram each Thursday evening at 5pm and each Saturday morning at 9am.

What products are customer favorites?

The most popular treasures we sell are handbags and jewelry including Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, Prada, Tory Burch, Tiffany, and David Yurman. In fact, Saturday 3/30/24 we are dropping a collection of David Yurman jewelry on our live video at 9am with the help of a guest.

In Conclusion

Article Consignment Boutique offers more than just a shopping experience; it provides a welcoming place for individuals to explore their personal style while contributing to a more sustainable future. With its seamless consignment process and dedication to showcasing the beauty and value of each item, Article ensures that every visit is a delight for both buyers and sellers alike.

Whether you’re seeking a timeless Chanel handbag, a boho Free People dress, or simply looking to refresh your wardrobe with curated finds, Article Consignment Boutique is definitely worth a visit. We encourage you to always shop small and local first, supporting families and the economy in our community.
