New 2 You relocates
A longtime flower vendor at the Saratoga Race Course and a Clifton Park native, Bailo opened the store 15 months ago in a basement space in downtown Ballston Spa.
"So many women have clothes just sitting in their closets and with the economy the way it is, I realized it’s the perfect time to recycle," she said, while sorting through piles of clothing consignors had dropped off.
Items get 60 days on the shelf with a half-price markdown after 30 days. Consignors take home a 50 percent cut of the sale.
Fancy gowns, women’s clothing (sizes 0 to 22) and shoes cover most of the racks, in addition to designer handbags and accessories like belts, jewelry and sunglasses. Small sections of men’s clothing and maternity clothing are new additions, Bailo said. All items are gently used or new, and many boast brand names or designer labels.
Bailo said the bigger, brighter location in Carousel Village has more parking, a handicap accessible ramp and more visibility, which accounts for the significant upswing in business she’s seen in the month since she relocated.
She plans to use New 2 You as a fund-raising engine for local girls’ sports teams or school clubs who team up with her for activities such as a shopping night where she’d donate a percentage of the proceeds back to the group’s coffers, Bailo said.
