Cara, Myrle, and Eleanor

Clementine is the brainchild of Cara Wall, an ardent consignment shopper, who could not find consignment maternity wear when she was pregnant a few years ago with her daughter, Eleanor.  She set out to create a consignment shop that feels like a high-end boutique.  Clementine is light, airy, and full of gorgeous designer brands—thanks to all of our consignors.

The shop is owned by Cara and her mother, Myrle, and often operated by their lovely assistants, Wendy and Madeline.  Eleanor makes frequent visits, looking for the lollipops that are always on the checkout desk.

Cara was born and raised in the neighborhood, and still lives in the neighborhood.  Myrle has been in the Village for 30 years and now live 6 blocks north of Clementine.  They both hope the store becomes a fixture in the community they love.

The baby hats you see in the pictures and in the store are one of a kind, hand-knit by MOMO, which is Eleanor’s name for Myrle.  They are made of cashmerino—a wool/cashmere blend that is soft, itch-free, and very washable.  They make beautiful gifts.
