Castlegar now has another option for ladies fashions. KdK Clothing has opened its doors downtown at 1120 4th Street.
Store owner Paige Sawyer describes her shop as a place to buy, sell and trade your new and pre-loved women’s fashions. It’s a hybrid model of consignment store, where people can bring the clothes they want to sell and get paid on the spot for the ones Sawyer thinks she can use.
Sawyer and her young family recently relocated to Castlegar, but her husband is originally from the area. They wanted to move to the area for a while and when an opportunity opened up, jumped at the chance to give the Kootenays a try.
Sawyer has owned a similar store in White Rock for about four years, so has experience in the second hand market. She decided to expand to Castlegar and see if the concept takes off here.
“I like the second hand market personally,” said Sawyer. “I like the eco-thrift idea of someone paying retail and me buying it the second time around. I’m just trying to fill a gap in the market and see if that’s what Castlegar is looking for.”
The store’s inventory reflects the current season, rather than the upcoming season as many retail shops do, so it’s a great place to look for that “I need it now” item.
KdK Clothing is open Tuesday through Saturday from 12 to 5 p.m.
