Old Town

Mint Condition

There’s a reason Washingtonian magazine called Mint Condition “heaven for fashion-forward NoVA prepsters.” Shoppers score brand names ranging from Chanel and Louis Vuitton to J. Crew for a fraction of the retail price at this adorable shop just off King Street, where the selection of women’s designer clothing, handbags and shoes looks practically unworn (hence the name). Consigners with ten items or fewer can stop by on Walk In Wednesday for an easy drop-off.
