Yesterday we discovered a very nice pre-owned clothing consignment shop has newly opened on the Square in Old Town Rockwall.
Consignment means they will sell your pre-owned clothing for you and you receive roughly half of whatever price they sell it for.

Check out the shop just east of the Courthouse at 114 North San Jacinto, where the Dallas Morning News used to be. Phone is 469-734-5659.
