Each week during the season on House of Consignment, we’ll be talking to eDrop Off owner and woman whose wardrobe we covet, Corri McFadden, about her take on every episode. This week is a double whammy, with two episodes for the price of one, so here’s our chat with Corri about episode two, where we meet more of her staff and visit Vicki’s closet.
You mention that your business has grown a lot in the past few years. Do you think the interest in couture consignment is economic, or has people’s interest in style has just grown?
We’ve seen an increase in business because each year we get more innovative, our client loyalty, and my staff and I work hard to make sure we are constantly making the service the best in the market. Everyone wants a good deal, and this is a business that makes it affordable for people. You can find some amazing deals.
What was your first impression of Daniel “Nipples At An Interview” The E-tern? Obviously he made it, but what were your first thoughts?
I love a sense of expressing who you are and he certainly did this.
Nicole definitely had a certain opinion about each of the E-terns because she could see how they were working and heard some of the complaining. Once Daniel and Mallory started their jobs, what did you think of their work ethics and expectations?
The purpose of an e-ternship was for them to get an insight into the business to see if it’s a right fit for their future. For us, it was about the ability to apply oneself to a task and learn what they are capable of as well as who they really are. Everyone who has worked for me so far has started at the bottom and worked their way up. There’s a lot to be said about someone who is willing to work hard, do the dirty work when necessary and remains faithful with no sense of entitlement.
Being a cop, her life is obviously chaotic and her closet was a voice crying out for help.
Why don’t you think people should buy the same thing in several colors? (I’m totally guilty of this.)
There are some exceptions to buying the same things in multiple colors such as a pant that you find with the perfect fit. However, when you buy multiples such as Vicki did with the Gucci belt, it starts to transform your shopping habit and begins to morph your style into a uniformed appearance that is predictable.
