Florida. Random Acts of Consignment, now at 20 N. Main St. in the village, is under new management.

On Friday, Nov. 15, Village of Florida Mayor Daniel Harter, with representatives of the Warwick Valley and Florida chambers of commerce, joined the new owners, Cheryl and Doug Petersen, for a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Random Acts of Consignment, a retail shop that offers consigned clothing, including shoes and accessories for women, men and juniors, also sells gently used or oftentimes never-been-worn items.

“The shop,” said Cheryl Petersen, “is filled with one-of-a- kinds, from modern to trendy to vintage. It’s fun to watch the adventurous customers. It’s like watching Indiana Jones, searching for that awesome item that evokes the power of discovery.”

All the members of the Petersen family recently moved to the local area from Washington State.

“Doug and I take care of the basic jobs,” Petersen said. “Our daughters and their husbands direct the technology and social media, and our grandchildren keep us laughing.”

In addition to new and like-new consigned clothing and accessories, Random Acts of Consignment designates a shop area for locally handcrafted soaps, candles, balm, books, honey, chocolates and crystal badge holders.

The company hosts quarterly workshops on how to reuse clothing creatively.

Random Acts of Consignment is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m Thursday.
