Katy Coleman
Founder + Creative Director
If you were to ask Katy a few years back what her idea of the perfect job would be, she would have said owning a women’s consignment boutique.  She is a strong believer in sustainable fashion and has shopped consignment for as long as she can remember. When she had the opportunity to purchase the store in January of 2021, she jumped at the chance. Six months later, Katybird was born!
Katy grew up in Washington, DC.  She graduated from Denison University in Granville, Ohio where she met Sam, her husband of 25 years. Katy and Sam moved to Seattle in 1994.  She worked in college admissions before joining the bake sale brigade after the birth of her first son, Jack, in 2000. Henry followed in 2002 and five years later, Jim rounded out the Coleman family. Their family also includes several furry creatures; their black lab Hattie, and cat Homey who are frequent guests in the store.   Katy’s personal style is a blend of contemporary and classic street style with a little bit of an edge.



What We Look For

We’re looking for women’s clothes, shoes, and accessories including jewelry that are in-season, purchased within the last three years, and in like-new condition. We are especially interested in mid-range ($150-$600 retail) wearable pieces from timeless, independent, and artisan brands. For the most part we do not take vintage or fast-fashion pieces, though we occasionally make exceptions for truly unique and on-trend items. For luxury and higher-end items we may extend the consignment period by an additional 90 days for online selling, with your permission. Please be aware that we are not able to take in items with stains, holes, pet hair, extensive wear, or other damage. We want your items to sell, and our selections are made with this in mind. If you have questions about what to bring to your consignment appointment don’t hesitate to give us a call!
