The Curated Closet, which made its home on Callender Street across from Sax & Fryer, has moved to a new location at 117 S. Main St.

“We’re real excited,” CEO and founder Caron Cooper said last week of the store, which offers premium donated vintage goods. She also runs its sister business, the Community Closet thrift store. “It’s just a nice location. We’ve seen an increase in foot traffic already. Sales are up. We have more space so people can see things. It’s really positive for our organization.’

The 117 S. Main space used to be occupied by the Vogue Shop.

“The Curated Closet has opened their doors in the historic Vogue Shop location with the goal of preserving as much history as possible and drawing more shoppers downtown … by providing savvy vintage and gently-used high-quality clothing and goods at great prices,” a Curated Closet news release said. “The Vogue Shop is reported to be the longest continually occupied clothing store in Livingston — almost 70 years — and the Curated Closet will carry on that tradition while enhancing historic downtown Livingston.

“… Vintage and historic elements in the building, such as the old flooring found under the carpet, have been preserved. There will be a traditional guest book at the Curated Closet for guests to share memories of the Vogue Shop and downtown Livingston’s stylish history.”

The Curated Closet’s inventory is culled from the best of items donated to the Community Closet Thrift Store. 

Curated Closet hours remain 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday to Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays, except Thursday and Friday evenings June 23-Sept. 22, when they’ll stay open until 8 pm.
