About Michael's Consignment

Who we are...

Michael’s, The Consignment Shop for Women, is a New York City institution, and a staple among New York’s most fashionable and savvy women. Since 1954, Michael's Consignment has been dressing New York City’s rich, famous, and fabulous in high-end designer apparel and accessories for a fraction of the retail price. From clothing and handbags, to shoes, jewelry, and furs, our designer labels are curated by top merchandisers with years of experience in the high-end market. Each item is hand picked for the highest quality style and only items in mint condition make it onto our floor.

I, Michael, have a real need to keep my shop filled with the most exciting pre-owned clothing in the world. I, Michael, need more Chanel, Hermes, Prada, Louis Vuitton and other treasures. My clients value these exquisite things, and so do I.
- Michael Kosof 1954


Over 60 years ago, Michael's set out to help every woman look like a million without spending a million. As the third generation of a resale minded family, Michael already had the consignment concept down. After securing a Madison Avenue address, the same location we are in today, Michael's vision of outfitting all women in the very best came to light. Today, Michael's continues to help New York's fashion elite by providing luxury curated and hand picked clothing and accessories at a fraction of the retail price, while giving consignors the opportunity to monetize luxury items they no longer use - all through a personal and hands-on approach.


Michael’s offers a level of quality and excellence that you don’t see in most consignment stores. For over 60 years, we have been hand selecting one-of-a-kind, luxury and haute couture items. In fact, many of our items are limited editions or custom orders. With that kind of experience, you can feel confident that you’re buying the best at Michael’s.
