Designer clothes are up to 60% off at this new Old Sacramento eco-friendly boutique

A new eco-friendly clothing boutique recently opened in Old Sacramento, bringing designer clothing at affordable prices to the city’s historic district and riverfront.

Threadeco at 1119 Second St. opened in November, with racks full of clothes from both factories and vendors who would’ve otherwise dumped the garments in landfills for something like a missing button. The store sells the items to customers, Threadeco wrote on Old Sacramento Waterfront’s website, for up to 60% off retail price.

Threadeco owner Maggie Baker said once the shop receives clothes from factories and makers, they work with a seamstress to fix any imperfections and add unique details before they’re sold in store. She calls the clothes “premium seconds.”

Sadie Jackson, 17, of Chico, looks for clothes before going to the Van Gogh Sacramento Exhibit on in November at Threadeco in Old Sacramento.

The boutique also offers clothing subscription boxes, designed with Sacramento visitors in mind who want to keep shopping Threadeco’s inventory from their home state.

“With each box that we ship out with our styling service,” said Baker. “We donate a piece of clothing to the shelters.”

Threadeco is open six days a week — 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
