Discover Treasures at Consign & Design

by Naomi Black

The old Costa Brava building is an elegant Old Port home which is aging gracefully with the slightly tired feeling of having lived in a grander time. Enter through the Mexican-style garden courtyard, through the entryway and up the stairs crowned with a magnificent chandelier, into the grand sitting room with unbelievable views of the ocean. Today, this is the perfect backdrop for the new Consign & Design, the place to find “experienced” furniture and clothing.

Recently, we see an increased focus on recycling in order to help ensure a “green” future for our planet; and, with that in mind, consignment furniture and clothing have become quite the rage. Now in Puerto Peñasco, you may indulge in the shopping thrill of discovering a unique or eclectic treasure. No longer are you limited to new furniture at new furniture prices. You may also shop from an outstanding selection of classy clothing for the discriminating dresser. You will feel like a true friend of the earth by recycling clothing or furniture and earning some cool cash, too!

Jill Mitchell and Bobbie Tobin are the proprietors of Consign & Design. Jointly, they have over 25 years of experience in the consignment business and believe that Consign & Design is “the right thing at the right time.” In Bend, Oregon, Jill operated Dejavu for 10 years, a top-end consignment furniture store. Jill is an experienced interior decorator who can assist clients to decorate their home, perhaps including an eclectic piece found at Consign & Design. Bobbie operated Bo-T’s for 16 years, a popular clothing consignment boutique in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area.

The spacious clothing boutique here has lots of room for clothing, accessories, jewelry and shoes. After shopping, you may indulge in a manicure or pedicure. And, Bobbie will carry the Arbonne natural cosmetic line. So, visit Consign & Design. Stop back by often, because Jill and Bobbie promise that “new action is brewing.”

Consign & Design is located at 20 Noviembre Street in Old Port, Puerto Penasco. Open 7 days a week. For more information call 388-7449
