Warwick - There’s been a change of ownership at Marilyn’s Consignment Boutique, at 22 Railroad Avenue. And on Aug. 21, Town of Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton, Mayor Michael Newhard and Michael Johndrow, executive director of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce, joined Christine DesJardines, her relatives, friends and employees, for a grand re-opening ceremony. Last July Marilyn Perillo came up with the idea to bring high fashion at affordable prices to Warwick by offering almost new designer clothing with name brands at discounted prices. As a graduate of Barbizon Modeling School in New York, DesJardines, the new proprietor of Marilyn’s Consignment Boutique, brings her background in fashion to her new business. She has also been a lifetime civil servant in the law enforcement field, and continues to strive to be civic minded and community involved. DesJardines also furthers her involvement in the community and charitable events by sitting on two Boards, one with the Orange County Shields, as Second Sgt. At arms, and the other, a Homeowners’ Board, as chair of Security and co-chair on Long Term Planning, and Entertainment. DesJardines and her family have lived in Orange County for over 20 years. Ask her about her three children and two grandsons, and you will be shown special pictures hanging in her shop that the “babies” have drawn for “Nonni’s” store. “My assistant and lifeline,” said DesJardines, “is Cecilia Hunter-Fincke. She is one of the very special people in this world that loves to give 150 per cent, and that she does. Cecilia, with her bright sunny disposition and extremely rare work ethic makes Marilyn’s what it is, a family that has grown. I also thank Marilyn Perillo for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime.” Marilyn’s Consignments Boutique specializes in turning your clothes into cash. The staff will help clients recycle designer, better department and specialty store clothing and accessories by selling them and passing along the profits. “Just remember designer and better department-store labels sell,” said DesJardines. “The better the label and the better condition of each garment, the quicker it will sell, and the better price it will fetch.”

Marilyn’s Consignment Boutique is open Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
