Two women, once perfect strangers, have opened a new woman’s consignment boutique called Lucy’s Treasures, at 1890A Wantagh Avenue in Wantagh.
Maria Scarpati, of Massapequa, had often thought of opening a consignment store because her closet was full of clothing with tags and shoes never worn. Enter Amy Fischer of Farmingdale, whose boyfriend Joe is property manager at the location and learned of Scarpati’s interest in opening a consignment stored, and teased Fischer about it. Fischer has just lost her second interested party in starting their own consignment shop.
Both women met and connected, sharing the same vision of a local store in which shoppers could stop in and enjoy the experience of browsing and perhaps afford to purchase an out-of-reach item or two.
Within three weeks of that meeting Lucy’s Treasures was created. The store is named after Scarpati’s granddaughter and the ladies say they have had a great reception from the community and surrounding towns. . “Everyone that walks in is impressed by our store and loves the fact that it’s local,” remarked Fischer.
At the boutique, people can find a variety of women’s merchandise that expands to all ages. Shoes, accessories, handbags and clothing are sold at the boutique and everything is based on consignment.
People can also sell their gently used/new items for profit. Hours at Lucy’s Treasures are Tuesday- Thursday, 11 a.m.-to- 6 p.m. and Friday-Sunday, 11 a.m.- to- 5 p.m.
