New kids resale boutique opens on Chicago Avenue


The owners of Threads Boutique, a consignment store for children’s clothing and gear, plan to celebrate their opening at 1304 Chicago Ave. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. on Thursday, April 14.

Owners Anna Ermel and Chaya Gordon Burstyn say the shop features brand-name clothing for kids, including special-occasion dresses and suits, as well as specialty items, such as leotards, dance shoes, cleats, and a selection of new accessories and gift items, all at a fraction of the retail price.

“As moms, we know how dressing your kids in fashionable clothing can be hard on a budget. Kids outgrow clothing so quickly, why not resell the ones in excellent condition for someone else to enjoy,” says Gordon Burstyn, an Evanston resident and mom of four.

Threads Boutique is all about doing our part to ensure that clothing, footwear and gear that are in excellent condition continue to add value to families in our communities — whether that is paying for like-new children’s clothing and gear or providing an important outlet for families on a budget to shop for upscale children’s wear,” adds Ermel, a Skokie resident an mom of two girls.

The owners say they handpick each item for the store to ensure it is in excellent condition, and that the styles and inventory in the store will continually change with the season and current fashion trends.

Visitors and guests who attend the April 14 ribbon-cutting event will receive a coupon for five percent off a future purchase at Threads Boutique.
