Sioux Falls is home to a lot of women's boutiques, but Second Helpings is different in a couple of distinct ways.

1. Second Helpings is a secondhand store. So you can sell your lightly used, recently laundered clothes as well as pick up a few new-to-you items at great prices.

2. Second Helpings is for extended sizes women's apparel. Sizes start at XL and go up to 6X.

Owner, Ashley Howd, has worked on and off for various women's chain retail stores in Sioux Falls, but always knew she wanted to open her own store. She started buying and selling on eBay in college. Then, two years ago she started Second Helpings online and out of her home. (You can still order online and Second Helpings will ship!)

And now, Second Helpings is a real-life boutique located at 2119 Minnesota Avenue. The opening day was March 12th and things have been going great.

When you stop in before March 21, make sure to get yourself registered to win a gift basket and a $75 gift card!

Second Helpings carries a wide variety of women's casual extended size clothing including jeans, tops, dresses, sweaters, shorts, capris, tanks, and skirts.

Fitting rooms are available at Second Helpings and don't worry about bringing the kids shopping. There is even a kid's room to keep them busy.

Second Helpings is not consignment. When speaking with Ashley she explained that she buys outright and prefers to set up buying appointments ahead of time so she can really take her time looking through items. Ashley said she's always looking to buy, but right now she is really in need of tops in all sizes as well as Summer attire like swimsuits. Activewear and leggings are also items in high demand right now.

Second Helpings does not buy or sell purses or shoes.

Second Helpings will do returns within 7 days with tags attached and garment in the same condition as when purchased.
