Michael’s Luxury Consignment Shop for Women is a New York City institution and a staple among New York’s most fashionable and savvy women. Since 1954, and through 3 generations we have set out to help every woman look like a million without spending a million. We select luxury and haute couture items and dress New York City's fashionistas in fabulous high-end designer apparel and accessories for a fraction of the retail price while giving consignors the opportunity to monetize luxury items they no longer use. From clothing to handbags, to shoes, jewelry, and furs our designer labels are carefully curated by merchandisers with years of experience in the high-end market. Whether purchasing or consigning, with our personal and hands-on approach you will feel confident that you're partnering with the best at Michael's.

While Michael's is in their 3rd generation, our family history in the trade actually goes back 6 generations. Hear our fascinating story from co-owners Tammy Fluhr-Gates and Laura Fluhr
Simon Kosofsky opens "Cast Off Clothing and Furs" on the Lower East Side Manhattan
Ritz Thrift Shop was opened on 57th Street. Carrying fine furs for the discriminating woman, Aaron Kaye (Kosof) coined the now famous quote ... "Every woman can look like a million without spending a million."
Michael's Luxury Consignment is opened on Madison Avenue at 79th Street. Aaron's son Michael Kosof was quoted saying: "I, Michael, need more Chanel, Hermes, Prada, Louis Vuitton and other treasures. My clients value these exquisite things and so do I."
Michael's daughter Laura takes over the family business, expands to a second floor and propels consignment to new heights.
Laura's daughter, Tammy, joins the business, adds a newly designed website, creates all things digital and brings Michael's to the global world.
After almost 65 years on second floor space, Michael's moves to beautiful ground floor space at 1125 Madison Avenue at 84th street.
