About Beau Monde

$10 Stuff A Bag For Charity fundraiser sales.
Hi! Here’s a little about us! My name is Brooke Miller, I have lived in North Idaho for most of my life, moved to Seattle for college, then returned home. I’ve been married for 25 years and have 5 children. I grew up in a family of 8 and let’s just say, all of my clothes were always from hand-me-downs, garage sales or thrift stores. I’ve always loved the thrill of finding treasures.
After returning home with a BA in Behavioral Science, then working in my field at Children’s Village and a school, I realized quickly that I needed my masters to make any money, especially to pay back those huge student loans (which I’m still paying off haha). I shopped often at similar stores while living in Seattle and decided to give it a go here in CDA. At the time, in 2001, there was only one somewhat similar store in all of Spokane and Coeur d’ Alene and surrounding areas (named Drop Your Drawers, remember?) A family friend loaned us a little money and we went for it! 18 years later, we are still providing what I feel is a great service to our customers…affordable, quality clothing, shoes and accessories for very family friendly budgets. These clothes that have already passed the test of being washed, dried and worn a little, thus proving their steadfast wear!
Bring in your gently used items
We buy and sell clothes, shoes and accessories at the Exchange in Hayden, that you will LOVE! Please check out our “How We Work” page on here if interested in bringing clothes in. We carry womens, juniors, mens and kids (size 12 months to 12/14). We are located in Hayden, Idaho, in the mall next to Q’doba by Albertsons.
We opened the business in 2001 on Appleway, next to 7-11 which was about 1200 sq. ft. We quickly outgrew our space and expanded 6 months later to the 2500 sq. foot space next door. Unfortunately, the mall we were in burned down after being there for 4 years, so we started all over from scatch, in small space on Government Way, in a 1,200 square foot unit.
After one year we moved a few doors down and doubled in size again. In 2009 we took over the adjoining space just to fit all of our inventory and accomodate all the clothes coming in!! After receiving news that heavy construction was coming to our front door on Govn’t Way, we decided to move once again, this time to the Ironwood Mall. After 5 years there, we relocated to the Prairie Avenue Shopping Center in Hayden, where we are now and will be until at least 2023!!
We opened a new store in July 2017 called BEAU MONDE OUTLET next to the $1 Store in CDA, behind Texas Roadhouse. Everything in that store is always $5 or under, including a $1 rack! That was so popular that we opened an OUTLET in Post Falls as well, next to Papa Murphys. We restock all 3 stores every single day with hunderds of new items. Come check it out! We would love to meet you and help you find something amazing.
