Found Underground Consignment is a bit tricky to find, but worth seeking out. Though not the best of Boulder's consignment boutiques, it is one of the most popular, probably due to its hidden location and exclusive atmosphere. With top brands from Banana Republic, Seven, Abercrombie and Fitch, and even Forever 21 available for less than $40 in most cases, Found Underground Consignment caters to a younger crowd but still carries accessories and shoes for all adults. The prices are higher than most consignment stores, however, so unless you have your heart set on a particular hard-to-find piece of clothing, you would be better off looking for another location. Finding Found Underground is a trick, but for serious fashionistas it may be worth it! - Sabrina Zirakzadeh
