New Jersey’s Hottest Couture Only Discount & Resale Boutique Is Online Too!!

The Couture Exchange was developed in 2005 to give you- The Couture Addict- a great place to get fabulous haute finds at a fraction of their original price! We carry Couture only Handbags, Shoes, Outerwear, Clothing & Accessories at 20 – 80% off retail prices! Some items are New with all their tags, etc., some items are Pre-Loved and some are fabulous Vintage Classics! Most of our merchandise comes from the closets of fashionistas throughout New Jersey and when they are bored with their couture, we resell it for them! We have a beautiful showroom in New Jersey, located at 691 Broad Street / Route 35, Shrewsbury, NJ (a block from Red Bank) and under an hour from NYC and all the hot North Jersey Malls! We live in a fabulous area, but there are not many local places to score true couture. So finally–our wait is over!

Did you always wish you had an endless network of fabulous girlfriends to trade handbags, shoes and accessories with?

Well, now you do! The concept came to me because I have a small handbag and shoe addiction myself (you probably do too-or you wouldn’t be here right now) and I never use even half of what I have. Or I have things that I wouldn’t mind letting go of if it meant I could replace them with new fabulous finds. The Couture Exchange is a place where you can buy and sell your couture comfortably and safely. It is our job to carefully inspect and screen all items presented to us for resale. We always try to get as much documentation, original packaging, etc. as possible for pre-loved items. Some of our new designer items are a result of my scouring sales, outlets, and discount shops for great deals.  It’s like having your own personal shopper!

Get What You Want and Love What You Get

We are real people at TCE! Get to know us!!

We are real people with a showroom in Shrewsbury, New Jersey that is open 7 days a week and is open to the public where you can come in and touch, feel and try on our merchandise before you commit. You can buy in person or you can buy online with complete confidence because we offer a 100% authenticity guarantee on all our items (see our policy). We have no patience for the abuse of our favorite designers! I know a lot of us have tried buying online through auctions and unfamiliar sites that seem to have no location, but you don’t really know what you are getting until it arrives and by then it can be too late. It’s too risky! I don’t know about you, but I have been burned one too many times. It’s scary!

Why pay more for fabulous couture?

We receive new merchandise daily so if you have any questions at all or requests for certain items, please do not hesitate to email us or call us on our local or toll free number at 732-933-1123.  We even keep a detailed “Wish List” so if there is a certain item you are looking for and we don’t currently have it, we will call you if we ever do! We are open 7 days a week. Our number one goal at TCE is to make our clients look and feel fabulous with their new haute finds! Good luck & be careful—it’s addictive!

How I Got “The Disease”! About The Couture Exchange

How did it all start? Well, as a young gal of 16 I got a job in sales at a local high end designer boutique. My job was to dress Successful Businesswomen, Ladies Who Lunch, and Local Society Wives. These women were my influence. That is where I learned about all the bad stuff–Diamonds, Couture Handbags and High End Fashion. My room was literally wallpapered with Chanel ads featuring Linda, Christie, Claudia and the gang. I even did my high school term paper on Chanel! One day my manager at the shop said to me, retail is great, but if you want to afford this stuff you better choose another career!

Well at 19 I took her advice and started a new career. I enjoyed success for 13 years as a financial advisor but I was in such a conservative industry. I could finally afford the good stuff but I was always stuck in stuffy suits! Booooring! So my signature trademark at the office was my handbags, shoes & accessories. They were my only true outlet for expression! I love, love, love to shop and get great deals so why not make a career out of that? I got the idea because I thought, Who does not love Couture? And who does not love a great deal? If there was a place where I could go and get great deals on fabulous couture, I would go there all time, at least every week! That is when I decided to get started! Have fun & enjoy!
