Useful Information.

The Loft

The Loft and Duck Worth Wearing are a pair of consignment shops that have their foundation set in laughter and love of one family out to 40,000 people who have visited The Loft and DWW since its first store’s opening. To learn more about the owners and the history of these two great stores, check out this month’s blog. 

You Should get to Know.

Each month we will be featuring a staff member for you to get to know! Our staff thinks of our consigners and shoppers as an extension of the The Loft family and we want to connect! This month you should get to know our very own Naomi Bratsch-Prince.

In Closing.

Every year when the holidays roll around I can’t help but think of how grateful we are for our customers, consigners, and staff. We couldn’t do what we do without the generosity of everyone who makes this store work. We can’t wait to show our thanks with great holiday sales.

Thank you for your business, and as always for shopping local!
