Experiences and Challenges

Q: What motivated you to become a franchisee of Season 2 Consign?

Jamie: The motivation for becoming a franchise came from first and foremost being a luxury enthusiast. It was after becoming familiar with Monica and Erika’s luxe live shopping experiences and how adamant they were on authenticity, that I knew I wanted to become part of this pre-loved revolution.

Michelle: As a Latina, one of my primary motivations is to embody the empowerment of Hispanic women. Season 2 Consign is a business infused with a strong vision, immense passion, and deep self-belief. Together, we form a powerful group of business leaders. Another driving force for me is the opportunity to run a business where I can help women feel beautiful and ensure they feel included in every aspect of fashion.

Olga: I found myself at a crossroads, balancing a demanding job with the desire to never miss my teenage children’s sports games. Witnessing their passion on the court is irreplaceable, and missing these moments became increasingly tough. Although I loved my work, it no longer fulfilled me. This search for balance led me to Season 2 Consign. After a year of consideration, I became a franchisee, partnering with Monica and Erika. It has been a dream come true, offering both a fulfilling career and work-life balance that I needed.

Q: What have been some of the most rewarding experiences and challenges you’ve faced in running your franchise?

Jamie: Some of the most rewarding experiences have been meeting local like-minded business owners and collaborating on events. In addition, meeting amazing clients and providing them with their very first luxury pieces has been rewarding to witness. Challenges have been learning the peaks and valleys of sales cycles and rhythms.

Michelle: One of the most rewarding experiences with Season 2 Consign is the opportunity to help non-profit organizations raise funds for children with critical diseases and their treatments. Getting to meet incredible people over these past months and as well making an impact in the community are some of the most rewarding experiences for me as a business owner.

Olga: The most rewarding aspect of what we do has been the relationships and the connections that I’ve experienced with our clients this past 6 months. While our focus is on the resale of luxury handbags, accessories, and shoes, our offerings extend far beyond these products. Just one example of the many beautiful interactions we get to witness is from receiving heartfelt messages from customers expressing their love for their purchase.

Fun Fact - Favorite Handbag Encounters

Q: On a lighter note, what is your dream bag, or your favorite designer handbag that you’ve seen come in on consignment?

Michelle: I will say that my dream bags are a Hermes Birkin 25 Gold and a Chanel Multicolor Tweed Vanity.

Olga: A fan-favorite designer handbag of mine is the medium-size Lady Dior by Christian Dior, but I often revert to the Chanel Caviar Single Flap since it's such a timeless staple.
