The Clotheshorse, a family-owned consignment boutique, is moving and expanding in Rocky Ridge.
Starting Jan. 15, The Clotheshorse move out of its current location in Rocky Ridge Square Shopping Center. They will relocate to two separate locations: one in Rocky Ridge Plaza, at 2512 Rocky Ridge Road, Suite 104; and one at the barn on 3365 Morgan Drive. Both of these locations are near The Clotheshorse’s original location.
The Rocky Ridge Plaza location will exclusively sell women’s clothing. Their second location, the barn that formerly housed Artists Incorporated Gallery, will sell men’s, children’s and clearance items.
Owners Becky and Tim Sager — who live less than one mile away from their store — first opened the Clotheshorse in 1992, shortly after their first child was born. Becky said she was shopping consignment to save money, but there was only one consignment shop in the area.
“I was shopping consignment, and I thought, why do we only have one of these?” she said. “I thought, I can do this.”
The couple opened The Clotheshorse, and they basically raised both of their kids in the store, Becky said. The consignment boutique sells brands such as Chanel, Tori Burch, Free People and more.
“We like to say we take high demand brands,” Becky said.
Becky said the Clotheshorse has been a good venture for them. Now, she is busy in the final days before moving into her new storefronts.
First, she wants to restore the barn. According to an old photo of the barn, which used to be a dairy farm, the exterior used to be white. Becky said they will restore the barn to its original color.
Then Becky will update other parts of the outside of the barn, such as the window panes and posts. She said she plans to add a swinging bed to the front porch.
“Hopefully, it will be a cozy place for people to hang out,” she said.
