Maybe you bought a designer outfit and it's just not right for your wardrobe. Maybe you bought a pair of shoes that are too small. Or maybe you're ready to make a change to your handbag and don't want to keep the old one around. Whatever your motivation, it can be difficult to donate a designer piece to charity instead of at least recouping some of the cost. Enter the consignment shop, where you can take your new or gently used designer goods and sell them. Below, we've rounded up seven of Las Vegas' best consignment shops in one handy guide. No matter where you go, remember to bring a valid, government-issued photo I.D. just in case. Also, most of these stores operate by appointment only, so be sure to call ahead.
