This is a great consignment store where I end up finding something special and/or pre-loved each and every time. The merchandise is clean and without any damages or flaws (unlike in some other consignment stores). The clothing items are well selected and of a more recent collection or season. This store carries mostly high end brands (again, vs. some of... More

I pop into a lot consignment shops in the tri-state area and Michael's is one of my favorites. Great selection of shoes and clothes with a chill vibe.

I live in Canada, but have stopped into the store with my daughter during a visit to NYC. What a gem! I loved how chill it was. If I lived there, I'd be in on a regular basis as I can tell the merchandise would change often with new items coming in. Really nice high end brands at decent prices.... More

So I'm always really skeptical about ordering shoes online but these weren't just any shoes my coworker has the same exact pair and I've fallen in love with the style. She mentioned the designer didn't make them anymore but to look online and see if I could find them because she had just found two in her size. I wasn't... More

This was the first time I used a high-end consignment store as a seller rather than a buyer. Michael's didn't disappoint on the selling end. The process was smooth; they were realistic about pricing; my check arrived promptly. If my next experience is equally positive, I'll give them five stars!

This is the best consignment store in NYC - probably in the tri-state area. The ladies that run Michael's know their stuff. You never have to worry about buying junk or a clever copy here. At different times I have purchased Hermes scarves, Chanel suit, jewelry, shoes, handbags - everything looks great. If you know what you are doing this... More

Every time you go it's a different selection so always fun. My girlfriends and I consider it a treasure hunt. Great finds with very reasonable prices. All very organized and the staff is very helpful.

I sought out this fantastic place in the Upper East Side on some research I did for the best consignment stores in New York. This one is the best. Beautifully laid out and it has the absolute top of the range items. Being a staple of the Upper East Side for about 50 years, I'm sure you can imagine the... More

What a well-maintained, terrific shop! Thanks to a lovely employee, Mary, I found the perfect pair of shoes at a steal. For sure I'll be back! :) If you're looking for absolutely great condition shoes from Chanel, Gucci, Prada, and other top designers, look no further. And I have big feet - there was a HUGE size range. I had... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
