I have shopped at The Cedar Chest for years. Although I live out of state, we visit the CT shoreline often, camping at Hammonasset State Park or just enjoying a day trip. I always allow time for my favorite consignment shop. The designer outlet malls are just down the road, but I could care less about them. It's much more fun to find the perfect designer outfit without paying outlet prices! Maybe it's the thrill of the chase -- no two items are the same, or the great prices. I've also found some beautiful necklaces and earrings that have made perfect gifts for my very picky college-age daughters. Highly recommend stopping in, but allow plenty of time. They also have an online store that I haven't tried yet, but intend to soon. Shopping resale is a pretty smart way to save money and still feel like you have a million bucks!
