A new consignment store in Ruidoso is offering up barely-used bargains.
A childhood full of consignment store shopping made an indelible impression on Carolyn Wright (Freemyer.) Now she's turning those memories into a thriving business.
The owner of Aunt Elsie's Attic, Wright said her mother was a constant shopper at consignment stores. "I was raised in consignment stores; that's just the way my mother shopped," Wright said. "I learned real young that consignment shopping was cool..."
Now Ruidoso residents can discover just how cool it is when they browse through the racks and shelves at Aunt Elsie's. Open since May 3, 1997, the shop offers an affordable alternative for those wishing to dress themselves in style.
