Refinements Owner, Cynthia Williams, since 1997

Refinements opened its door for business the summer of 1997. Our goal was to create the perfect consignment store where one could find beautiful name brand clothing and accessories for a fraction of the retail cost. We wanted to create a store that had large, comfortable dressing rooms, a clean and organized shopping area, a relaxed and soothing atmosphere where one could just get away from it all and browse. We made a commitment to ourselves and our customers that we would only offer the best in styles and quality. Over the years, that has become our signature. Our customers shop Refinements when that need that special outfit for a wedding, anniversary, party or just to find great outfits for vacation or to upfit their wardrobe.

Refinements Consignment Shop is a consignment store located at, Sutton Station – 5850 Fayetteville Road, Suite 103, Durham, NC 27713


We are open Monday through Friday 11:00am to 6:00pm, Saturday 11:00am to 5:00pm, and NOW OPEN SUNDAYS 1-5PM.
