Have you ever wished that scouring the internet for second-hand designer goods could be more like Polyvore and less like Ebay? Well, this week’s guest is the answer to our pre-owned fashion prayers. Kelly James is the founder and CEO of  Boulder, CO-based 27 Perry, a new, innovative online shopping platform for consignment goods. On today’s show, Kelly will talk about her background as a buyer for corporate fashion, the uniquely personal and poetic vision (literally!) that led to 27 Perry, and some of her own criteria for shopping used wares.

Plus, a set list full of the latest from bands like Dr. Dog, Bleeding Rainbow, Young Rivals, Wild Yaks, and, of course, another Sufjan Christmas track! All that, plus your search for a pair of gently-worn Jimmy Choos is over: tune in to crack the code for first-rate fashion at second-hand prices!
