If you took a look into Jacqueline Iribarren’s closet, one thing in particular would stand out: it is far from boring. As a long-time thrifter, Jacqueline quickly became aware of the many thrift and consignment stores in Madison, WI. However, despite the number of thrift stores Jacqueline visited, she always noticed a common thread: the clothes appeared too cheap for professional wear and she found the stores to be overcrowded and overpriced.
As a result, Jacqueline received the perfect opportunity to open Rethreads, a boutique focusing on higher products and an environment that emphasizes an excellent shopping experience. Rethreads also works to end fast fashion by being both sustainable and economical. The journey to get to where Rethreads is today was not always easy, but definitely worth it.
Soon after the opening of Rethreads, many fashion shoppers discovered Rethreads and the quality and value of the clothing that is sold. Over time, Rethreads succeeded in becoming Madison’s leading resale fashion boutique located in the heart of downtown Madison on State St.
