JUPITER -- If you drive down Cypress Drive and look for the purple shutters - stop! Go in and you’ll find one of the most extraordinary collections of slightly used home furnishing around, as well as an unusual and most interesting trio of proprietresses anywhere. If you don’t find the merchandise fascinating (we don’t know how you couldn't), at least it will be impossible not to enjoy the personalities of Kim Moore, Jacque Blair and Rhonda Gagliardi - they are the owners of The Good Stuff Consignments, 1515 Cypress Drive, which opened about a month ago. The store is small, but the owners have put together some creative merchandising to display their wares. The displays are somewhat sectionalized, each unto itself. The use of a creative theme, bright and funky colors and the owners extending a blend of kooky humor and wit that would make one think they were watching an inprov comedy show, pretty much completes the picture - and usually the sale. But, with all the fun and laughter going on, the ladies are very knowledgeable about their consignments and darned serious about their business. The three partners are obsessed with the concept of wearing a tiara, so much so that not only do they sell them, but they offer a special every Tuesday to those who come into to the store wearing a tiara, men or women. If that happens, the person will get a 10% discount on anything they buy. The ladies are so tiara conscious that their store slogan is: “A Tiara Worthy Place to Shop.” The tiara fixation actually came from the partners participation in a local chapter of The Sweet Potato Queen sorority. The girls founded the local chapter and named it Christmas Belles of Jupiter. Each year, at the JTAA Christmas Parade, the three of them march the entire length of the parade route wearing ball gowns and, of course, tiaras. They win trophies and awards every year for originality. There is living proof of them hanging on the store wall. So there you have it - a delightful little consignment shop on a delightful little street with three delightful and fun loving ladies running the show. Their merchandise is trendy, the decor bright and imaginative and the trio couldn’t be more personable. It is the perfect place to shop - don’t forget the tiara on Tuesday - and the terms are reasonable and very simple to remember. The consignments are kept for two months. Sales are on a 50-50 basis. If it is an artist, it is on a 25-75 percentage. Checks are issued the 15th of each month. And, best of all, the store is still accepting consignments. Further, the partners couldn’t be happier with the reception they’ve received since moving to Cypress Drive. “People have been wonderful,” Jacque said. “The relationships we’ve formed in just one month, both from other business people and customers, has truly been great. The turn out we had at our Grand Opening April 16 was perfect.” Jacque had been in the consignment business before, but the others hadn’t. But, Rhonda’s summation of it all was, “I’ve never had so much fun in my life.” Kim’s reaction - “If you’ve got a dream, just do it.” The Good Stuff is open Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm. thursdays til 7pm Go to www.TheGoodStuffConsignments.com to answer your questions, or call 561-746-8044.
