Ashley Colston, owner of Ashley’s + Size Consignment & More in Broken Arrow, offers a great selection of clothing, including baby, children’s, juniors, men’s, women’s and plus sizes, as well as accessories, home décor and housewares.
In the heart of Broken Arrow, off the beaten path of retail stores, lies a unique consignment shop filled with inexpensive, quality merchandise just waiting to be discovered. Ashley’s + Size Consignment & More offers thrifty shoppers a great opportunity to stretch their buying budgets and find notable labels at a fraction of retail costs.
Ashley’s carries a variety of consignment items. A huge selection of clothing is available, from infant to children’s sizes and juniors to women’s regular and plus sizes. Owner Ashley Colston notes that plus size clothing seems to be what is lacking in many other consignment stores.
“I saw that there was a demand for lower cost plus size clothing and decided to fill that need,” says Ashley.
Expectant mothers will find a range of quality maternity clothes as well as outfits and related items for their infants. Boys’ and girls’ apparel for school and playtime can burden a budget at retail prices, so many parents frequent the store for low cost buys for their kids. Teens and women have an especially large selection of trendy and sophisticated clothes to browse.
Ashley’s + Size Consignment & More also carries a line of accessories, both new and gently used. Purses, jewelry and sunglasses are on display for the customers’ perusal, as accessories can add to the overall appearance of an outfit. Although clothes make up a large portion of the store’s stock, home décor items and housewares are also on hand, thus offering something for everyone.
The store itself is arranged like a department store, with everything separated and sized into its own category. Items are easy to find, and helpful assistance is always available. This style of boutique setting makes shopping easier, especially for customers who only have a limited time period in which to shop. As an added bonus, mothers who want to shop for a while do not need to worry about finding a sitter for their children, as there is a designated playroom for the kids’ entertainment.
“Customer service is our first priority,” says Ashley. “We have wonderful regular customers and are always looking forward to meeting new people.”
The most advantageous aspect of buying on consignment is, of course, the savings. Many simply enjoy the excitement of finding a really good buy, which is easy to do at Ashley’s. New stock comes in regularly, giving shoppers a greater range of items and more low-cost purchasing power than ever.
