Meet Michelle; founder/owner/operator of our great little store.

We couldn’t do all this without them.”

When I visited Michelle’s for my first time, I was very satisfied with many things. The consignment clothes selection was great and organized by sizes and color. There was a variety of retail clothes, jewelry, and handbags. I also had the fashion advice/suggestions given to me by all my fabulous ladies. Since losing lots of weight, I’ve had to restock my closet with clothes that fit. I used to hate going clothes shopping, but now I love it. I’ve sent many friends to Michelle’s to shop and I’ve been back numerous times a week to see the change in clothes that are put out. Thanks to the great staff at Michelle’s!
