Inga’s Once is Not Enough

4830 MacArthur Blvd NW, Washington, D.C. The next time you think of consignment shopping, think of Inga’s Once is Not Enough Consignment boutique in Washington, D.C. Dr. Inga Guen, a Prussian renowned neuropsychologist by day, has been the sole proprietor of this charming boutique for 20 years. She prides herself on being able to make a human connection with each of her customers, and ensures they all leave feeling confidently stylish and with a smile on their faces. When you hit the top of the boutique stairs, your eyes are sure to dance in sheer amazement. There are racks upon racks filled with tweed Chanel suits, Eskandar tops, amazing vintage handbags and accessories. The boutique brings in new items daily and Inga’s consignors reside in D.C., Maryland, New York, and L.A. Top fashion houses even send certain items to her location—talk about one of a kind merchandise! Each consignor is required to consign at least 8 items. The consignor then has a 2-month window to sell. If, for some reason, those items don’t sell, they are returned back to the owner. Named as one of the 62 Best Consignment Shops in D.C., Inga’s boutique carries high-end labels only including, but not limited to, Loro Piano, Marin, and Hérmes. Inga even has a section in the boutique that she calls “The Carrie Closet”. Carrie Bradshaw’s picture hangs behind the racks stacked with Lanvin garments and the breathtaking Christian Louboutin offerings. Referring to her Palisades area boutique as a “dress agency”, Inga is a strong believer that if you look good, you feel good. Therefore, her main goal is to assist in styling women to look and feel their best. So, the next time you find yourself in the Palisades area, stop by Inga’s Once is Not Enough Consignment Boutique. You’re sure to find top-notch quality items and enjoy the warm and inviting spirit from Inga and her staff.
