Channel 8 looked into the trend in Tulsa toward consignment shopping to save money and encourage sustainable living.
"It's hip. You can save money. It's the right thing to do," said Restyled Thread founder Katie Lieberman.
Dressing nice for work does not come cheap.
"Having an option to go buy the same thing off of a rack for a third of the price is very attractive," said Lieberman.
Enter consignment shopping-- A culture of handbags, shoes, work attire you never knew existed.
"You're going to save 80 percent," said Makala Welsh, another Restyled Thread organizer.
These women told Channel 8 there are not many consignment options in Tulsa for adults. They said most are geared towards kids.
"Not women's and men's," said Katie Fox, who is also working on the Restyled Thread event. "So, we thought that we would give it a shot and see how this all works out."
Enter Restyled Threads-- A roaming consignment opportunity. This is the event's first weekend at Tulsa Marriott Southern Hills.
There are many widespread rumors and concerns about consignment stores selling dirty, worn clothes.
"It's not," said Lieberman. "Most of the items are new with tags or never been worn."
Lieberman says consignment shopping often leads to nice, quality brands at discounted prices. Also, the idea of recycling clothes is sustainable and good for the environment, which she says, Tulsans are taking note of.
"Some people are just more conscious in general," she said.
There are than 3,000 items on display at Restyled Threads. Whatever does not get sold will be donated to help DVIS, an organization that fights Domestic Violence.
