Well, it’s that time of year again–the Mardi Gras season is upon us! Formal dress balls and dressy cocktail parties are abounding and require just the right attire! Unless you have found a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, you might want to check out some of the consignment shops in the area for that new-to-you sequined number.
Back on the Rack, 1419 27th Avenue, Suite E in Gulfport, features upscale resale of pre-owned formals, cocktail dresses, Mardi Gras gowns, boots, handbags, designer handbags and more. Phone: (228) 822-1480
Re-Threads, 1001 E Pass Rd, Gulfport, carries a variety of items for resale plus a good supply of ball gowns and cocktail dresses. Phone:(228) 896-3850.
Prima Donna Vintage Boutique, 134B Rue Magnolia Street, Biloxi, carries an eclectic collection of vintage and current styles with a limited amount of evening wear. Phone: 228.365.4939.
Goodwill Industries of South Mississippi has a number of locations all along the Gulf Coast from Diamondhead to Pascagoula, Waveland, Bay St. Louis–fourteen (14!) total. You never know just what you will find in a Goodwill but you usually find something you can use!
There are other consignment shops in the area but most do not have a website, and unless I have been in the shop or have a website, I feel unqualified to list them for fancy dress attire.
Happy Shopping and I hope you find the perfect gown or cocktail dress for all of your special occasions!!
