Peru, IN – A new high-end resale shop is coming to Peru and if you act fast, you can earn some extra Black Friday shopping money by selling your gently used brands that are taking up space in your closet!
Amy Netherton is the owner of Pandora’s Box, which will be located at 656 W. Main Street, Suite One.(Changed to 9 Broadway Plaza, the former location of Radio Shack) This is the current location of Alchemist Vapor Shop and Lounge, but Alchemist fans have no fear. The vape shop will still be there and continue to operate. It will just be in a more secure section of the building in order to prevent youth access to vapor products. Alchemist has been owned operated by Amy and her husband, Larry, since 2014.
Amy has also been very active in the vapor industry and is the current president of the leading vapor association in the state called Indiana Smoke-Free Alliance, but this new venture is completely her own.
“While Peru has a number of great second hand and thrift stores, it doesn’t have anything that specializes in high-end fashion brands such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Coach, Dior and Hollister,” said Netherton. “I wanted to create something that was geared towards empowering young men and women. I want them to feel special and know they are beautiful inside and we can help with the outside.”
Her slogan for the new store is “Open the Possibilities” which refers to both what you can sell as well as what you can buy at Pandora's Box.
She plans on carrying a wide variety of clothing and accessories for both young men and women.
“Initially it will be mostly women’s clothing and accessories but as we continue, I will expand into more items including the latest trends for young men. It will eventually include a full inventory of items including a limited selection of shoes, handbags, and accessories."
Amy and her husband chose Peru for Alchemist due to its central location between Logansport and Wabash as well as Kokomo and Rochester. The same applies to Pandora’s Box.
“We just love Peru and think the people here will appreciate the direction of the new store.”
While not officially opening until Tuesday, November 27, 2018, (Changed to December 10th due to new location in Broadway Plaza) Amy is encouraging those who have name brand items they want to sell to come to visit her at Alchemist Vapor Shop and Lounge between November 19th to November 21st between the hours of 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
“I’ll be paying cash for gently used name brand items at great prices to build inventory for the new store.”
The store will not offer consignments or store credits but will pay cash for items.
“So many of these types of stores just want to offer store credit,” said Netherton. “I’ll pay cash that you can use in my store or anywhere else you like.”
So how does it work? For items you wish to sell, your clothing, footwear, handbags, and accessories must be:
• Authentic high-end or designer brand. E.g. Dior, Channel, Coach, Tory Burch, Bebe, and more. We also accept high end on trendy chain store brands such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister, H&M, and Zara
• New, like-new to gently-used condition
• Freshly laundered and wrinkle free
• Brought in baskets, boxes, and stylish container. ABSOLUTELY NO BAGS ALLOWED! Items will be automatically rejected.
• Free from faults such as fading, tears, pulls, pilling, pet hair, cigarette smoke smell, and stains
• Relevant to current season + trends
• Purchased within the last 2 years (unless exceptionally cute or classic vintage)
• Garment sizes and item variations are subject to our discretion which is dependent on existing stock and current trends
There’s no appointment necessary – just remember to bring along a valid government-issued ID like a Driver’s License or a Passport (and an adult if you’re under 18). Bring your freshly laundered/cleaned items to their sales counter and they will start going through them and inspecting your items right away.
For anything they are able to buy, they will assign it a selling price and make you an offer to receive cash on-the-spot. Simply put, you just get paid-no need to wait for your items to sell!
Over the weekend and into next week, she and her husband will be renovating the vapor shop into the new store. Alchemist will continue to operate from the same location but will be in a separate area.
