First Pawn Stars.. now “House of Consignment” and “Fashion Hunters”
Consignment shops will be the setting for a bunch (and we mean like 3 to 4) reality television shows, all trying to piggy-back on the popularity of TV shows like Pawn Stars and the rise of budget fashion.
Vh1’s new reality TV show, “House of Consignment” will premiere in January 2012. The new show stars Chicago entrepreneur Corri McFadden, who owns a consignment store that buys and sells used designer goodies. Corri and her entourage of fashion experts also offer a “Closet Cleanout” option, where they analyze and advise wealthy clients on the states of their closets.
House of Consignment is similar to Bravo’s new show “Fashion Hunters“, which also follows a consignment shop (New York based “Second Time Around”), and features a similar set up. TBF has learned that other consignment shop based shows are in the works for Style Network and WE.
While we can definitely see the dramatic possibilities for a show based at a consignment shop, you won’t find “budget” shoppers at these stores as the featured stores tend to cater to the “Optionally Broke”, those who could pay full price, but choose to shop consignment.
