About Us

Prior Attire, serving the fashion-obsessed since 1999!

Shelly, Owner of Prior attire

Mom always said I flew by the seat of my pants! So after dinner with a dear friend, she wasn’t surprised I was signing the papers the very next day to purchase my favorite consignment store, Prior Attire. I purchased it from my oldest friend who knew my love for style, shopping, & people would make me a perfect fit for the resale industry. Since I took ownership in 2004, store expansions along with additional locations & services have been added to the Prior Attire experience! There is no doubt that dinner with a friend led to one of the most successful & rewarding decisions of my life. To be honest, I thought cute clothes at a great deal would be my biggest reward of this venture, but I quickly learned the biggest treasure was the relationships I built with customers & consignors over the years. Some have been with me from the beginning and such a huge part of my success. I truly consider us all partners in consigning & in our community.

Prior Attire has been helping consignors build and clean out their closets since 1999, in an upbeat and friendly store atmosphere. Hundreds of new arrivals are added to our stores everyday!
