About Us

Our Story

Created in 2002, Dechoes Resale is the idea-come-to-life of Kerri and Mike Colangelo. Kerri had been selling designer goods on eBay for years, and decided it was time to open a brick and mortar location. The original Dechoes Resale was located on Edgewater Drive, just 2 doors down from the current Edgewater Drive location. Kerri wanted to bring a new concept to Orlando: purchase items outright while mixing vintage, contemporary, and high end designer pieces. Providing these special pieces in an edgy boutique setting with exceptional customer service has always been a top priority for Kerri and Mike.

We are well aware of the amount of waste created by the fashion industry every year, and believe in being as sustainable as possible. By shopping resale, and by going green, you are giving pieces new life, and reducing your carbon footprint!

Dechoes truly is a place for the fashion obsessed!

Our Mission

Dechoes strives to offer an alternative to conventional clothing consumption by giving gently used pieces a place to be bought and sold. We have created a sustainable way to recycle clothing in order to do our part in reducing humans' environmental impact on our precious earth. We want to do this in style so we make sure to chose compelling, unique, and exciting pieces for our store!

Our Community

As a small business, we identify closely with our community. We strive to create a comfortable and safe space for every member of the community. This is especially important for our LGBTQIA+ and Black brothers and sisters. We are firm in our stance on equality and Black Lives Matter and do our part both as a company and personally to contribute to these important causes. 
We currently host a number of Black-owned small businesses in our stores. If you are interested in having your items in our stores, please contact us at (407) 648-7480 or (407) 894-6622 or send us a DM on Instagram. We are always seeking new Black owned businesses to support!

Our Environmental Impact

We take this subject very seriously and our entire business is modeled around sustainability! Every item in our store is second-hand, that means nothing has been produced for our store. Globally, we throw away a whopping 13 million tons of clothing a year, 95% of those can be reused or recycled (Source). We also ship all of our orders in either recycled or compostable materials. We are a small fraction of what it takes to clean up our earth but we are committed to doing our part.
