Midtown Authentic {Designer Resale Boutique} Opens on 1st Street

Written by:

When it comes to buying designer goods, it’s nice not to have to leave the mile square to do so. You may remember Midtown Authentic as the mobile bus most recently making its way through town selling designer goodies {think: bags, shoes, accessories} — but the shop’s owner, Rory Chadwick, has opened a new brick & mortar at 257 1st Street in downtown Hoboken {previously the store was located at 700 Garden}.

Among the racks of Midtown Authentic, you can find the creme de la creme in designer accessories. The 10-year-old business houses Louboutin shoes to Balenciaga and Celine handbags — to Keepall Louis Vuitton luggage and other precious finds, and the store is chock full of designer goodies at all times at a fraction of the retail price.

The shop not only sells authentic designer items, it buys them from you in cash as well! Totally perfect for ex-boyfriend material. And just a good ol’ fashioned spring cleaning for some cash.
