The Fashion Exchange, a women’s designer consignment shop, has been in business in Newtown, CT since 1984. Our pink victorian house is filled with 6 rooms of clothing, jewelry and accessories. It is your destination for designer women’s consignments like Gucci, Prada, Yves St. Laurent, Ralph Lauren, Elle Tahari, Laundry, Coach, Anne Klein and more!
Store owner, Janet Falkenthal has been dressing women in the latest fashions for nearly 35 years. Originally from England, she has upscale taste and great fashion sense.

Her business is bustling, with the latest fashions ahead of the season, and a constant flow of old and new clientele.
“Consignment is a way you can have beautiful clothing at a fraction of the cost especially for the working women. They can consign their clothes and walk out with a brand new wardrobe.”
Everything must be current. “It doesn’t have to be a designer label, but up to date. We carry all labels such as, Ann Klein, Gucci and Prada as well as, Ann Taylor, Talbots and Ralph Lauren — it’s the whole mall in one shop. Consignment shopping to me, it’s the thrill of the hunt, you never know what you’re going to find.”
