Aimee Richards Whitman loves chatting with customers while wearing a tunic sweater with black leggings and boots. Off to her right is a pin board filled with tear sheets from magazines like InStyle, Vogue and Glamour. The vision Owner Aimee Richards is indicative of her consignment store – a warm, friendly boutique feel that features the latest trends at an affordable price point. Second Chance Consignments has long been in the works, from pipe dream to brick-and-mortar storefront. “I was tired of saying ‘Someday… someday I will have my own store,’ so I decided to finally go for it,” Aimee recalls with a smile that hints at the satisfaction she feels from being a small business owner. The opening came as no surprise to her closest friends who have always sensed her entrepreneurial spirit. It was these friends who excitedly rallied around her when she opened her doors earlier this year. “Whether you need a dress for a holiday party, a sweatshirt to stay cozy on a chilly winter night, or a pair of jeans that need to fit just right – we have it.” But Second Chance carries more than women’s clothes. You will also find accessories, household items and décor. Aimee has found the biggest challenge she faces is educating people what a consignment store actually is. In the simplest terms, people bring her their new or gentle used items and they split the sale of those goods. A portion of Aimee’s inventory still has the original tags on it. The rest of the inventory is hand picked by her so that everything she puts out is in perfect condition. She updates the store’s Facebook page regularly to showcase these new arrivals, sales and special events. (“Like” the page at (http://www.facebook.com/ SecondChanceConsignmentsLlc?ref=hl). The roster of special events include Ladies Night, which is held on the third Thursday of every month from 5pm - 7pm. Customers can mingle, enjoy snacks and participate in hair, makeup and cooking tutorials. “I’m working harder than I ever have before,” Aimee says. “But I’m the happiest I have ever been.” Interested in consigning your goods? You can set up an appointment with Aimee by calling 518-480-3110. Interested in visiting the store? Visit Second Chance Consignments at 162 Main St., Hudson Falls, NY (next to McCann’s Pharmacy).
