Consignment store opens
A Denver entrepreneur, mother and philanthropist has come out of retirement to open a women’s consignment store in Centennial.
Jonna Tellinghuisen, 52, opened The Style Encore in early September, just a few years after selling and retiring from her 5,000-plus herd, family-run dairy farm at age 49. An entrepreneur from an early age, Tellinghuisen was just 24 when she owned Customizing Accounting Software. She then became a wife and mother of four daughters, before buying and running the dairy farm.
The Style Encore will buy and sell gently used apparel, shoes, handbags and accessories. Unlike a typical consignment store, no appointment is necessary to sell clothing and accessories, and it pays cash on the spot for goods it purchases from consumers.
Truly a family affair, Tellinghuisen will run it with her husband, Leon, their four daughters, her sister, her two nieces, and several other family members.
Style Encore is at 8223 S. Quebec St. in Centennial.
