Clothes Mentor: I believe that scoring a big deal is often worth a little drive. Imagine Talbots jackets for $15 (retail $80), Caché jeans for $18 (retail $90) and a Coach bag for $150 (retail $600). It’s not just your imagination, it’s reality at Clothes Mentor, a resale fashion chain now open in Buford. The store specializes in better brands like Ann Taylor Loft, White House/Black Market, Banana Republic and more, with most items averaging $13. Along with regular women’s clothing, find petites, misses, plus sizes and maternity wear. You also can consign your clothing and accessories for cash on the spot.
