Why Buy from Clothes Encounters?

We Offer Unbeatable Value – First let’s be frank here. If you love clothes as much as we do then buying from us is always going to be much more affordable than buying them straight off a designer’s rack.

Unlike other local consignment stores in the area, we’ve developed relationships with several fashion-forward consignees in places like New York, Miami, Los Angeles and other trendsetting centers.

This network of out-of-town consignees will often ship us like-new designer clothing several times a week…things that not available anywhere else in Asheville.

Depending on the item (and any sales we might have going on), this means you can easily find great looking brand name or designer clothes for at least 50% off – which allows you to stretch your clothing and accessories budget so much farther.

Our Service Exceeds – We take very good care of our customers. We work hard to have a a friendly, warm, and relaxed atmosphere. We want the women who enter our shop to feel welcome – no matter what their race, or ethnicity.

Whether you need to find the right wardrobe for a new career,  help organizing a cluttered closet or just a great looking dress for a special night out, we can help.

Your Money Stays in Our Community – By buying from us your money stays in the Asheville community where it can benefit local people and charities.

We are not a resale franchise. We are small, local business, and have been part of the Asheville consignment scene for almost three decades.

We love what we do and take pride in helping our both our local ladies and Asheville visitors purchase high-end designer clothes for less.
