Fashion Gets Second Chance at Sequels

Sequels Consignment at Van Ness


In honor of National Secondhand Wardrobe Day (yes, that really is a thing), we thought we’d give you a peak inside Sequels, a small shop on Wisconsin Avenue at Van Ness Street.

Specializing in what it terms “couture consignments,” Sequels has called Tenleytown home for nearly a decade. Originally located on the first floor of the apartment complex at 4115 Wisconsin Avenue, the shop moved just around the corner last year to a street-facing storefront at 4111 Wisconsin Avenue.

Racks inside Sequels consignmentThough small – it’s a cozy space – Sequels has an eclectic selection of gently worn women’s clothing and accessories, ranging from casual to business to formal wear. Shoppers may have to hunt carefully through the racks, but there are some good finds by recognizable designers to be had. As with all consignment shopping, patience and a good eye is key. The selection changes regularly and new items are offered daily.

Currently, Sequels is holding a sale on spring and summer items, with deeply discounted prices. Look for fall and winter items toward the back of the store until last season’s items move out.

Sequels is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
