Best Used Clothing Store

b. (a resale shop)

It's always gratifying to know that a business cares about its customers and has its ear to the street. According to owners Allison Bross-White and Rahsaan White, b.'s mission is to fill the void of hip-hop-centered businesses. They have outfitted both men and women for nearly two years, but the shop has also helped the local scene thrive by supporting events and collecting donations for a group of artists to visit South by Southwest. As you enter the doors, jams from Desdamona to Doomtree can be heard and works by local artists can be seen on the wall. Browsing the small yet thoughtful selection of clothing, shoes, and accessories will impress you with a blend of vintage, basics, and high-fashion pieces from local designers. You may even find that special Gucci purse or P.O.S.'s sneakers, at a fraction of the retail value. New inventory is posted on the store's Facebook page, and if you ask nicely they'll put it on hold for you.
