Everything you ever wanted to know about Mercy Beaucoup! We sat down with store manager Lynn Spaeth to get answers to her most-asked questions.
Mercy Beaucoup is a resale boutique located at 1545 N. Wells St. in Old Town that benefits Mercy Home for Boys & Girls. We carry men’s and women’s brand name and designer fashions at a fraction of retail prices.
Shoppers will find men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories, as well as some small décor items and kid’s clothing. Everything is in very good to perfect condition, and it’s all presented in a clean, well-organized boutique environment with a helpful and friendly staff. Part of our inventory is new with tags, including some which is donated by local stores.
What’s special about Mercy Beaucoup is that we carry consignment quality items, but our prices are more in line with thrift stores. There’s something for all ages and price points, and every purchase benefits the kids at Mercy Home.
Most items are around $10-30, but there’s really a range between $2-$200 or higher.
We bring out new items weekly, and we do markdowns every few weeks to keep inventory fresh.
We carry more mainline brands such as Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, J. Crew, and White House Black Market up to brands like Tory Burch, Burberry, Max Mara, and St. John.
To donate, bring the items to the store during our business hours. You can view the list of things accepted online, but everything should be in very good to perfect condition. Please bring the items in a bag that we can keep, because all items are currently being isolated before being put out for sale. A garbage bag is a great option!
As previously mentioned, items that are brought in are isolated for two days before they are handled. Masks are required over the nose and mouth in the store, and that is strictly enforced. The dressing room is sanitized between use, and customers are also asked to social distance for everyone’s safety.
he store is open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. We are closed Mondays.
