FASHION & STYLE A Chat with St. Louis’ Resale Royalty T he Vault Luxury Resale, founded by Sue McCarthy, was the setting for Style Network’s workplace documentary series, “Resale Royalty.” Located in Brentwood, The Vault draws shoppers from not only the United States, but around the world. It is not uncommon to run into a shopper who traveled from a different city in search of exclusive items. We recently caught up with the ladies to find out how they continue to maintain that retail magic and dominate the resale industry. Q. What do you love most about your work? It’s like Christmas every day. You never know what’s going to come through the door. We look at over a thousand items daily, so it creates a very high-energy kind of vibe. People cannot wait to see what’s coming out next! Q. What sets The Vault Luxury Resale apart from other resale shops? We have 50,000 suppliers from all over the country that we buy from. We are getting a huge volume of designer goods on a daily basis. We also offer an in-home pickup service and will pay you for your designer goods right in your very own closet. We now pick up in over 10 major cities in the U.S. We pay cash on the spot for your items and buy everything from Lululemon to Louis Vuitton. Our store has become a destination for shoppers. We have groups of women that come from out of town to shop with us. We even create their own in-town itinerary of things to do, where to shop, where to eat and where to stay while they are in town. We are a full-service operation. Laura Maurice, Sue McCarthy and Diana Ford of The Vault Luxury Resale 14 GAZELLE STL
