Meet Kristy:

A resident of Manitoulin Island for over 6 years, owner Kristy Carleton noticed a need for a budget-friendly, fashionable place to shop shortly after relocating here, and determined that many other people were also seeking a place to find modern, affordable clothes for themselves and their families. 

Always a lover of antiques, vintage & retro finds, and the thrill of the hunt, Kristy decided that a consignment shop would be a perfect fit for her personality and lifestyle.

Now a mom of three little ones, Kristy is putting her career background of Business Management and Customer Service to the forefront and is always thrilled to make new friends and customers!
