Have you started your holiday shopping? Uptown Attic has many customers that shop us first before going to the crowded and overpriced mall. During the entire month of December, consignors will save an additional 10% off of their purchase when they use their credit to shop in-store. (This includes the 15% consignor discount). We have many brand-new items to choose from as well as previously loved items in perfect condition. Do you know someone who loves to shop Uptown Attic? Give them the gift of guilt-free shopping by giving them gift certificate. Weekly sales will also take place through the month of December. Each week a different category of items will be on sale. This week....All dresses (holiday, cocktail, casual, etc...) are 30% off. Please call us or check us out on Facebook for the weekly sale update. Until next time.... here's wishing you Happy Holidays and an enjoyable shopping season.
LADIES' NIGHT OUT....THURSDAY NOV. 17TH.. 5PM-8PM...
Once again, we will be enjoying a night of good conversation, yummy treats and, of course, awesome shopping! We will also be supporting the FAMILY OF NEW PALTZ food pantry for the upcoming holiday. We kindly ask that you bring in a non-perishable food item/items for the pantry and in turn, you will receive 30% off the entire store!! This was a huge success last year and we want to do it again this year.
Looking forward to a great turnout and a fun-filled night!
Uptown Attic is now accepting Halloween costumes for all ages and sizes. Why pay full price for a costume that you are only going to wear one time?? Consignment is a great way to recycle your previous years Halloween costumes! So far this season we have sold a bumble bee, monkey and pumpkin. And, still waiting for new owners,... a tiger, ladybug, Spiderman, black cat and princess. Now is the time to bring them in. October 31st. will be here BOOfore you know it!

It's time again for our annual "BACK TO SCHOOL EVENT"!! Each year around this time, we think about how the children are finishing up their summer vacations, hopefully their summer homework and preparing to head-off to a new year of school. Many will go back with new clothes and school supplies and, unfortunately, many will go back without new clothes and no school supplies. This is where we come in.
On Thursday, August 25th. from 5pm to 8pm, please join us at UPTOWN ATTIC.We will be helping Family of New Paltz supply children in need with the necessary supplies to ensure a successful year for them. Please bring in any new or gently used school supplies and, in turn, you will receive 30% off of the entire store!
Yes... everything in the store will be 30% off for you just for giving a few
needed school supplies. Getting a great bargain always feels good and
so does giving back.

This was our 3rd prom season at Uptown Attic and I found that with each year our prom dress sales increase. Which, I guess, makes good sense. Definitely "good sense" for our prom customers. Year after year, I find that more girls are realizing the value of purchasing a gown from a consignment shop. Value in the way that they will be wearing a stunning gown that no one else will have on, something so unique and high-end another girl could not possibly afford and, not to mention, a price that makes Mom and Dad smile. With this they can still afford to have their manis & pedis, up-dos and some extra cash in their purses for that special night. As a store owner, I am thrilled when a girl finds a gown she is so excited about and then fits her like a glove. I get excited right along with her and feel proud to have played a small part in a big memory. Congratulations to all my "Prom Queens"! Here's looking forward to season 4!!
It's time to celebrate!!! Join us this Thursday, April 14th. from 5-8pm for a special Ladies' Night Out. Enjoy friends, fun and wonderful shopping. Save 30% off of the ENTIRE store, plus enter to win a $25.00 gift certificate to Uptown Attic. Ladies' Night is always a great time, especially when you bring a friend along. See you there! xoxo
Lately it seems that jewelry is being consigned by the bag fulls! Our case is bursting with so many beautiful and unique pieces. I absolutely love the jewelry that is brought to Uptown Attic and feel great thanks and pride for being entrusted with these precious gems. From Swarovski crystals to precious stones and 14K to sterling silver....so many of these pieces come with stories. Some have been purchased on a trip overseas, some being passed on from a long-gone relative or simply being handcrafted by a young girl attempting to try-out her business sense. The one story that most pieces have is common is that their previous owners wish their jewelry be purchased by someone who falls in love with it and finds true enjoyment in the piece. So, if you have been searching for that little something special, stop in and take a look even if your just in the market to admire.
It was two years ago that Uptown Attic opened it's doors. Time sure does fly... I remember walking into the store on March 9, 2009 and feeling as if it was my first day at a new school. Both exciting and uncomfortable. I created the store, yet it felt so strange to me. Wondering who I would meet, if I would fit in and would they like what they saw? Well, two years have gone by and Uptown Attic is still here. Full of great energy, beautiful items and many happy and friendly faces. I have long surpassed the strange feeling of that first day and have enjoyed meeting so many wonderful customers and consignors. With almost 700 consignors and two years under my belt, I feel blessed to "fit in" and be so supported. In celebration of this 2 Year Anniversay, save the date for our first Ladies Night Outof 2011 happening Thursday, April 14, 2011 from 5pm to 8pm. Stay posted for more details on this fun-time event!
Now that March has arrived and warm weather is approaching, (one could only hope..) Uptown Attic will be open every Sunday from 11am to 5pm. Sundays will be "business as usual". Feel free to drop off or pick up your consignments any time of the day. Looking forward to spending many wonderful Sundays with all of my great consignors and customers!
As I was recently browsing the Internet, I came across the latest fashion ideas and colors for the upcoming spring season. Much to my surprise, the hot color for this spring is bright orange. Now a couple of weeks ago, before I viewed any of these articles, I decided to display the store with what I thought was the best bright orange pieces Uptown Attic had to offer. Not for a particular reason, except that I thought the color was great. Why should this color be saved for the fall season? So, how surprised was I to see that, after reading the articles, I really am onto something! Here are some shots of my displays of bright orange for the spring season. After all of this drab weather, put on springs new "cheer-you-up" color!!
I attended a wonderful event at New Paltz High School this evening called "Coffee House". This is where some very talented students get the privilege to show off their superb talents in playing a musical instrument, singing or whatever they fancy. The cafeteria was staged in a relaxed setting and we enjoyed some amazing music! Some of which I'm sure is to be famous one day. I did however, pass a sign that said "Snowball Dance" March 4th. I then realized that I better get the news out quickly! Prom season is fast approaching and Uptown Attic is now accepting prom and/or dance dresses. Please remember that your previously loved dresses must be cleaned and in perfect condition to be taken on consignment. It's time to pass those high school memories along..... :)
Welcome to the very first post of"Uptown Updates". The intention of these posts is to keep both the consignors and customers updated to the current happenings at Uptown Attic. Whether we have a special event, current sales, unique items that have newly arrived or anything worthy of a post, will be posted. I am excited about this addition to my newly updated website (Thanks to Mike Rice of Net Prophet Web Design). My hopes are that you too will find it fun and informative.
