New 2 U: Family consignment in Drexel Hill

A Charlotte Russe dress for $9.99. An American Eagle skirt -- with a $29.50 price tag still on it -- for $12.99. And an Ann Taylor Loft suit for $30.

They're just some of the deals we spotted at New 2 You -- a new family consignment shop that just opened in Drexel Hill.

But this store doesn't only have women's clothing. Here, there really is something for everyone in the family.

The store also has adorable baby clothes from names like Carter's, The Children's Place and Ralph Lauren, along with menswear and brand-name shoes.

And though the deals are great, the two best girlfriends who opened the shop last month are an even better reason to stop by.

"They're my fashion consultants, so, no matter what I come in here to get, I always come out with more than I was supposed to," laughs Adiyah Eskridge of West Philadelphia.

Leah Pugh and Shavonne Tillman are licensed Realtors and shopaholics with a passion for fashion and a desire to serve their neighborhood.

New 2 U gives them a chance to do just that and have a blast at the same time. Pugh explains, "We had brand-new things with tags on them that we would usually give away to people, so we decided we might as well get a little bit of our money back and be able to supply the community with nice merchandise at a reasonable price."

Tillman adds, "I think this is like our life's calling. We love shopping, we love fashion, I think we're meant to do this. This is like shopping for free because we get to go through the things and we get to supply the community with things that are very nice, at a reasonable price. This is a really a blessing for us to have this opportunity."

For Spring, New 2 U has lots of holiday dresses, prom gowns and accessories in stock, including a cream-colored cocktail dress from Lord and Taylor for $80, a Jessica McClintock halter gown for $70 and a fuscia dress from The Limited for $23.
