Diamonds in the Rough

There aren’t many people these days who aren’t trying to save money when possible. One good strategy a is to find high quality used clothes, instead of buying new. Diamonds in the Rough is a great little consignment clothes store in Mill Valley, filled with beautifully organized, accurately sized and color separated clothing, shoes and accessories.

The quality of clothing and shoes is terrific. You find a lot of designer brands, and the items are gently used, clean and pressed. They have a particularly good selection of jeans, “little black dresses” and sweaters. On a recent visit, I found several gorgeous pairs of shoes, unfortunately a half-size too small, but then that’s the downside of consignment shops. There was also a beautiful Cole-Haan leather handbag that was priced at probably a quarter of what it cost new.

The owner is super friendly – always greeting visitors with a really warm smile and giving you complete freedom to wander through, without bothering you. The store is a bit hard to spot, because it sits at the back of a small parking lot on Miller, next to the Family Thrift Store.
