Remixx consignment shop comes to Manayunk

Remixx owner Ljupka Neducsin says fashion is all about ideas. Clients who shop at her consignment shop can expect more than just a selection of high-end clothing, jewelry and handbags, but also a look, Neducsin says. “We’re trying to sell the idea of high fashion,” says Neducsin, who opened her shop at 4355 Main Street in Manayunk last week. “We don’t sell used clothes, we sell fashion and quality.”Born and raised in Macedonia, educated at college in Bulgaria and living in the Philadelphia area since 2005, Neducsin says she got into consignment around 2008, after networking with a couple of the Main Line’s stylistically-inclined residents who had accumulated more clothing than they knew what to do with.“I knew women with basements full of clothes that are bigger than this store,” says Neducsin.      Neducsin previously owned Upscale Resale a few blocks away on 4255 Main Street, but relocated to what she says is a smaller and more manageable space at 4355 Main Street, formerly the site of the swimwear store Abbe’s Place.In 11 days, Neducsin and her husband laid wood floors, installed new lighting, painted the store and added shelves filled with names like Prada, Gucci, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Armani and Polo, for those occasions when dressing up calls for something more than flip flops and a Phillies t-shirt. But while Remixx carries most of the high end brand names, Neducsin says items at Remixx are marked down 70 to 80 percent, so a $1,200 Gucci bag sells for around $300, a $4,000 Chanel jacket would sell for $600 and a $1,500 Richard Chai dress for around $175.“According to the EPA office of solid waste, Americans throw away more than 68-pounds of clothing and textiles per person, per year,” says Neducsin. “We believe in recycling yesterday’s classics for today’s savvy shopper who appreciates fine craftsmanship and expert tailoring at affordable price points.”
