You are encouraged to not just shop at our consignment shop, but to consign with us as well! Turn those in style pieces that just sit in your closet into money! Or use it as store credit to have a continually changing closet or well-decorated home. No appointments are needed, just bring 15 items or less at a time of your “in season” clothing that are clean, wrinkle-free, and on hangers. We will quickly assess your items and return your hangers, then price your items and put them on the floor for sale.
Also, we accept shoes that are in season and like new. In season purses are always something we’re looking for as well! However, we are only able to take authentic designer bags, no “Knockoffs”. Knock-offs are illegal to sell or resell even though they are darn cute. If you are not sure, please don’t bring them.
Items that we do not take: Pajamas, nightgowns, lingerie, underwear, anything with stains, pilling, yellowed collars, buttons missing, zippers that don’t work, snags, holes, tears, any type of odor- even perfume.
Find original unique and fun costume jewelry at Evilena’s Red Dresser that changes almost daily. In addition to consigned jewelry, we have beautiful handmade pieces from local and global organizations. We believe in supporting local artists and organizations with a philanthropic mission. Check out our upcycled jewelry in which profits of those sales help women in difficult circumstances and make improvements in their difficult lives. Beaded key chains benefit an orphanage in Africa.

How Evilena’s Got its Name…
After 30 years in the field of nursing, I searched for a different way to serve the community. After attending a variety of classes and community groups sought guidance from business professionals and a lot of prayers, I decided a consignment shop could be a way to help people in a down economy. Besides having another way of selling their merchandise through my store, I wanted to inspire people through the store displays. I wanted to show people how to use inexpensive items alongside quality pieces and create a comfortable space to live in. Order and simplification in our lives is a portion of a recipe for peace and contentment. We have proven over the years that you can have a well functioning and beautifully designed home on a low budget.
I chose to name the store after my mother, Evilena, (now 101 years old as of April 2018), because she was the thrifty influence in my life. She recycled everything before it was given the name recycling. We created projects from anything we found, which was usually in the basement! We bought next to nothing.
My favorite color is red, and I have always loved fixing up furniture, hence the name, Evilena’s Red Dresser.
