Where do luxury and high-end consignment shops like Decadestwo get their wares? Our sister site, Racked NY has the scooparella: "The Wall Street Journal tags along with Decadestwo's Christos Garkinos on a Chanel-hunting mission in the California vacation home of a Kentucky socialite. Representative snippet: "After he finished, Mr. Garkinos asked where the other closets were. 'It's not what's in the first closet. It's what's in the fourth closet,' he said from long experience. Sure enough, Ms. Whitcraft bustled down the hall to a bedroom closet, where she kept more gowns." [RNY]
