The Attic is Coming to State College

State College is getting another store, adding to the plethora of trendy clothing shops that already line College Avenue. This time, it’s a consignment store with a concept similar to Plato’s Closet, but with a broader selection of items.

The Attic is currently in the process of setting up in the old Campus Candy location, which should be completed for opening in 4-8 weeks.

It’s a new store to the area, but it already has established stores in three Pennsylvania towns: Bethlehem, Manayunk, and Kutztown. There’s also a store online, featuring clothing that is exclusive to the website.

The store’s website states:

The Attic is a unique modern and vintage clothing store where you can buy, sell, and trade your clothes and accessories and get one-of-a-kind looks on any budget.  Because we are buying and trading directly with you, we are able to sell the latest designer clothing and the best retro looks for much less.  The Attic is the most stylish thrift store you’ve ever seen!  Our process is quick and easy – bring in your former favorites and receive cash or store credit for the items that we can resell.  We buy everyday, no appointment necessary.

The Attic features clothes from brands from stores like Anthropologie, Free People, J. Crew, Betsey Johnson, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Juicy Couture, among many others from stores that are harder to come by in this area. They also will carry some vintage items.

The price point for many of the clothes is also quite reasonable, which won’t hurt a college fashionista’s budget.

And hey, it can’t be worse than Campus Candy, right?
