I have been shopping at Goddess since they opened, and always marvelled at how great an idea it was. I have been delighted with my purchases.and in fact almost my entire wardrobe has been from Goddess. Awhile back I got an email from another store in Prospect, which also specialized in 14+ size. This was interesting as previously there weren't any plus size resale stores in Connecticut and now here are 2 very close together within the state, and how did they get my name? isn't that strange? When I saw the name of Aura it clicked that this was the woman who used to work at Goddess. When she was there I tried to avoid her as much as possible, as she was IMO trying to sell me clothes that were not my style, and was very vocal about her personal religious beliefs, which was a turn off. On a day that I was in Propect saw the shop and decided to visit. She greeted me and told me how happy she was that I found her. When I inquired as how she came to open the SAME type of store as the one in which she had worked, she avoided my eyes and told me that God had told her it was time to move on... oh boy here we go I thought. So I guess God told her to copy another stores original theme, marketing and to contact their former shoppers !?! How Godly can that be? Another shopper at the time overheard my conversation and commented as she left that she felt bad vibes in this store. I agreed and told her about Goddess in Waterbury and how she will be far happier with the staff and the varied selection of clothes, without the bad vibes. I will continue to patronize and send my friends to Goddess, as they have the best and widest selection of 14 and up clothes in the area, the first is still the best!
It was delightful to find this gem of a store tucked away in Waterbury! Usually people are motivated to write a review when they are disgruntled or ripped off but I am compelled to give praise where its due. I am a freelance writer, resale shopper and proud plus size woman. Work brought me down to Waterbury, my best girlfriend told me if ever in this area to check Goddess Plus size Consignment. I drove to the address listed here and found an empty new plaza, but thank goodness I was equipped with my phone and GPS, after calling them and finding that the empty store was their next move, I made my way to their temporary store on Scott street. Being welcomed upon my entry (always a plus), I looked around and thought I had died and gone to "Big Girl Clothing Heaven" . Normally in a consignment store you have to scrounge around to find your size, but here, everything was color coded and sized.(saving me time and dissapointment) The clothing was displayed beautifully and accessorized to demonstrate how you could wear it in ways you never thought of. By the time I had arrived at the 3rd rack of clothing , my arms were already full! Yes, it's THAT good. The place was fairly crowded with other women, who heard me oooing and ahhing another woman asked me if this was my first time here, because of my comments! That day I spent $125.00 for easily $500.00 worth of clothing, (they take plastic unlike some other placed that are cash only). Thank you Goddess for making me look like a Goddess!
That is how I feel whenever I walk into Goddess, just like family! The employees are GREAT!! I can walk thru the door and I am already being brought clothes to try on. The woman there know my taste in clothes and size. It makes me feel that when they receive new items in that they are thinking of me personally, as to say "oh that would look GREAT on......" The clothes are top notch, neat, organized and in great condition!!! I have been a customer for years and there are days I will stop in just to say hi to the wonderful friends I made. Needless to say I generally NEVER leave empty handed. The prices are more than fair. I have also consigned clothes there too, and it has been a wonderful experience. There is nothing better then getting rid of clothes that do not fit and going to the register with my purchases and having money on my account. As I continue to lose weight I will still shop at Goddess, not only to see the WONDERFUL staff but the shoes, purses, jewelry, etc that they sell. I can NOT recommend Goddess enough, I tell EVERYONE I know about it, regardless of size, plus or not you will purchase something there. There is ALWAYS something "to good" to purchase and not "let get away"!!!!!
