Ellen retired from school teaching to raise her 6 boys in Greenwich, Connecticut. Admittedly, while raising her family she did not pay much attention to the fashion industry, current trends or designer brands, and put her love of clothing and accessories on hold. Once her children were grown she looked for a new career path and in 2006 bought Consigned Designs from its original owner of 25 years. Over time, Ellen has quickly become an industry leader, offering exceptional designer pieces at incredible values. Her stores have expanded to include men’s upscale fashions and baby goods, as well as a Elle Encore Couture, which offers timeless, one-of-a-kind luxury pieces designed by premier designers in a boutique setting.
