Description

Kathleen Luparello and Jennifer Hopf left their jobs in Manhattan’s Garment District after becoming mothers, but found that they missed working and missed the money. Their solution to both problems: The Preppy Turtle consignment shop. The store carries infant-through teen-size clothes for boys and girls along with maternity clothing, all at a fraction of the cost of new duds. There are toys, gift items, accessories, and home goods like bedding for youngsters and teens. ‘We now have about two-hundred-seventy consigners working with us,’ Luparello says. The store splits the proceeds with the consigners, giving them 40 percent of the sale price. What doesn’t sell after 90 days is donated or returned. ‘Last year, we were able to donate one-thousand pounds of clothing to the Katonah Community Center,’ she says. ‘We gave the unsold baby equipment to area shelters and books.’
