There are many posh boutiques and style stops in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire. But nestled among restaurants on Bow street is a stop you just can’t miss. Esta is a high-end consignment store with amazing styles at up to 40% off their original price.
I fell completely in love with these blue heels below, originally from Barney’s.
A lot of the consignment stores in Portsmouth are geared towards an older market but Esta has beautiful pieces for many ages and sizes. I was amazed to find so many shoes in a size 5!
But Esta’s real gem isn’t hidden behind the Isaac Mizrahi shoes or under the Lily Pulitzer purse. Esta’s real gem is sitting behind the desk in the back of the store, and her name is Ann. Ann is the founder of Esta and has run the business right through to it’s two year anniversary, last week.
In a self-serve world it is so refreshing to meet a store owner who cares about more than the bottom line. Ann was more than happy to simply show me around the store and ogle the gorgeous designer labels with me. With Esta’s incredible selection of merchandise, great prices, and Ann’s kindness, it is an absolute must when in Portsmouth.
