Ambria Miscia

Ambria explains the hilarity of leaving overpriced items in the store and her new found love for eco-friendly fashions.

The Gucci shoes were so amazing that I offered something that I'm not even allowed to offer -- 50/50. It's not in the rulebook, but I know how to make money for the store and sometimes I just go my own route. Those shoes were classic, and I just knew they'd sell. Fifi was really on the fence -- more than you even saw -- and there are certain things that I flip cartwheels for. In the end it will make the store $500.

Wilson handled that consignment so well -- I was so impressed. The guy was really being pushy, which happens a lot. Wilson refused to get pushed into a corner, and I even liked that he said, "That’s ridiculous!" to the price that the consignor wanted. It's hard to say good-bye to a jacket that cool, but he wasn't even in the right ballpark. The last thing we need is to have people come in to shop, take a look at the jacket, and laugh at our pricing. It absolutely happens and that's why we don't let consignors dictate the price.
