Vintage store moving
Vintage luxury shop Rotate Boutique has moved to 361 E. Maple Road in Birmingham from Bloomfield Township, adjacent to Lee’s Specialty. Rotate is a luxury consignment boutique owned by India Shepherd, a Detroit native with an eye for fashion and a mind for business. After more than 10 years as COO of Ace Investment Group, a property management company, Shepherd decided it was time to partner her love for business and fashion to create Rotate Boutique. She says her idea to create a luxury consignment boutique was birthed in the spring of 2018, when she tried selling her own items to consignment stores, yet found herself generally unhappy with her selling experience. Determined to bring excellence to the consignment experience and add a twist of new and sophisticated retail items, India has created a comfortable, luxurious shopping experience. “We curate authentic, gently worn luxury pieces from private collectors and auction houses, carrying items from brands Chanel, Fendi, Gucci, Hermes, Versace and many more,” Shepherd said. “All items are put through a multi-point, brand-specific authentication process by a trained team of luxury experts before they are accepted for consignment. We inspect all goods for appropriate brand markings, date codes, serial tags and hologram stickers. Everything passes through our strict authenticity tests before it is curated into daily sales.”
