Client Spotlight: Michelle with Swap Boutique

Michelle Reinhardt, a New Orleans native, opened Swap Boutique just over five years ago.  It has grown from one shop to four locations, including Metairie Road, Maple Street, Magazine Street, and Perkins Road in Baton Rouge.

In her own words, Michelle describes Swap as follows: “Swap Boutique is a fresh, contemporary designer consignment shop, a haven for fashionable and budget conscious women. Each dress, shoe, and handbag is chosen deliberately for the discerning eye of our customers. We cater to the fashion-minded shopper who appreciates current trends and loves to get a deal.”
