About Us


In 2009, Christine Sanderson started Le Thrift Luxury Emporium with her best friend out of her West Town apartment. She was a single mother at the time who currently had also lost her full-time job due to the Great Recession. Instead of sitting around waiting for an opportunity to come to fruition, she decided to take a chance and do something that she loved and always wanted to try. Why not? She had nothing to lose. It was then she started her online consignment site and it grew to the business that it is today. Le Thrift Luxury Emporium is now a luxury collective marketplace for women.

L.L.E.  has earned a reputation in Chicago and the US, among fashionistas, as being the reputable boutique with whom to do business.

L.L.E.  has a mindfully curated selection of top designer brands such as Chanel, Prada, Hermés, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, YSL, Helmut Lang, Gucci, DVF and many more. Added to the shopping experience, is an eclectic selection of finer vintage clothing and accessories ranging from the 1920's to 1990's that you cannot find anywhere else. Some of the vintage brands that Le Thrift offers are Ungaro, Ferre, Schiaparelli, Zoran, Bonwit Teller and Bonnie Cashin. Le Thrift now has included handmade and home goods that have a luxury vibe to add to your home.

It is L.L.E's  mission to offer a superior experience in service not only to our customers but just as importantly our consignors. Le Thrift Luxury Emporium is the Selfridges store of the consignment and vintage world we will only continue strive to offer our consignors and customers superior white glove service.
