New consignment shop specializes in special
In the (hopefully) happy aftermath of formal events like a wedding or prom, all of the work of planning as well as the costs are forgotten.
However, all of those reception centerpieces and those fancy candles from the church are still around. And so are the dresses, veils and other accessories.
Just imagine all of the stuff sitting around Kim Kardashian's house.
"Those decorations kind of just sit there afterward. You don't want to throw them out, but no one knows what to do with them," said Diane Monaghan, of Kenyon. "It is kind of tough to have 16 hurricane lamps in your house."
In an attempt to help people with this dilemma, Monaghan is opening Special Day Consignment in Rochester at 608 Second St. S.W. That's where Kristen's Knits was located until it closed last summer.
While she is already accepting items for consignment in the store by appointment, it will open for business on Jan. 9.
It will be open Wednesday through Saturday or by appointment.
This is a sideline business for Monaghan, who has a day job with Blue Cross and Blue Shield. It is a family project and her son, Richard Monaghan, will help her run it.
