This past Saturday, Kim Ruszala, Owner of Teenage Wasteland Consignment Store, on the corner of Bushy Hill Rd. and West St. in Simsbury, and I collaborated in an effort to promote each of our businesses. Kim gathered 8 models and we had a fun evening, photographing some of the hundreds of dresses/gowns available for purchase, as well as some loungewear, casual clothes, shoes, and men’s clothing.
Don’t be fooled by the name of this consignment store; it is not just for teens! There is a fantastic assortment of shoes, purses, jewelry, belts and other accessories. The loft holds a huge men’s section, which includes jeans, sweaters, shoes, belts, and suits. When I say there are hundreds of formal gowns and dresses, I’m not exaggerating. An entire room is dedicated to these dresses. I recently outfitted myself with 4 formal and semi-formal dresses needed for a black tie wedding weekend and spent only $85 total! Homecoming is just around the corner – bring your girls here and save! With new items being put on the floor daily, you will always find something. Check it out!!
