Echo Boutique

Echo offers curated consignment at its best — carefully selected staples from cashmere sweaters to Chanel flats, all in pristine condition. Now in a bright, new location on First and Madison, the store is exceptionally well-merchandised, and with prices 70 percent below retail, it's easy to justify buying that entire outfit so artfully displayed. 1033 W. First Ave., Spokane • 747-0890

Fringe & Fray

You know that friend who always wears fabulous signature pieces and nonchalantly says she "thrifted them" when you ask where they're from? Maybe she's a Value Village magician; more likely, she shops at Fringe & Fray. Stylish and sustainable shoppers love the always-changing inventory and perfectly organized racks. Follow them on Instagram and Facebook — they post many of their new items, so you'll know when to scurry over and snag that great pair of designer boots. 1325 W. First Ave., Spokane • 720-7116

Veda Lux

Savvy shoppers know not to judge a shop by its size, and that's definitely true when it comes to this tiny South Perry boutique owned by local fashionista Summer Hightower. Opened in 2010, Veda Lux is indeed small, but inside its four walls, shoppers encounter a treasure trove of vintage fashion from all decades, and for all occasions. Hightower is also known for her eclectic jewelry designs — all handmade by the free-spirited trendsetter — which are also sold at the boutique. By scouring racks across the country, Hightower keeps her ever-changing inventory stocked with unique and funky finds, so that anyone who steps into her dollhouse of a shop can find something that reflects their individual style. 1106 S. Perry St., Spokane • 475-1674
