The front room in the new shop features designer clothing and purses, jewelry, and new items from the Luxi brand, including rompers, summer dresses, and off-the-shoulder blouses.

Auntie Te’s left Bradlick Shopping Center because of the high rents and parking conflicts, especially on Fridays when the overflow from the nearby mosque filled the lot, she says. The rent for the Eskridge place is just over half what it was for the same size store at Bradlick, and there’s plenty of parking.

At the new shop, Cizmar has set a stricter policy on consignments. For one thing, she doesn’t accept skirts any more, as they don’t sell. What she wants are more designer purses.
If you’re interested in consigning something, call 703-321-9363 to make an appointment. Clothing must be brand-name and in excellent condition, pressed, on hangers, and not more than three years old. The proceeds are split 50-50. Items unsold after 60 days are donated to charity. Potential consignors can bring four items on Thursdays, 5-8 p.m., without an appointment.
