Julia Mortenson, founder/owner of Scene Street Consignment believes it is the blend of merchandise that consists of new and resale items from local designers along with consignment merchandise with labels such as Talbots, LL Bean, and Coach that make her store unique to the area.
She is quick to point out that, “First time customers like what they find so much that they become repeat customers, and I thank them for their loyalty.”
The trendy boutique has become more than a regular stopping place for the ladies who need to dress with both style and budget in mind. The store also carries men’s clothing such as sweaters, dress shirts, suits, winter coats and more.
Scene Street Consignment store was started because Mortenson, who was a working mom, lost her job in the height of the recession.
“What’s a girl, to do,” she said, as she tried to find a solution to her challenge. Soon Julia realized that there were countless women-people in her situation and an idea was born.
The result is Scene Street Consignment that provides a place for women and men on a budget to find accessories and apparel that make a style statement.
Mortenson said she has been told that are store is hard to find.
"We are in the same building as Tea Birds, same entrance from the Rite Aid side and also from Main Street. Our phone number is 723-2335 should you need to reach us. We look forward to providing all of our customers with excellent customer service and quality merchandise for years to come," she said.
Store hours are Wed through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays.

The Hand Therapy Certification Commission, Inc., (HTCC), the only organization granting hand therapy certification in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, India and South Africa, is proud to announce that Amanda Reardon has renewed her credential as a Certified Hand Therapist. Amanda has been credentialed since 2007 after meeting strict eligibility requirements and passing the rigorous Hand Therapy Certification Examination. Certification is granted for five years. In order to renew and maintain this certification at the end of the five-year period, CHTs must demonstrate current knowledge in the profession through work experience and professional development activities, or by taking the examination again. There are approximately 5,400 individuals worldwide that hold this marked designation.
According to Dr. Roy Meals, a hand surgeon at UCLA, many physicians direct patients to Certified Hand Therapists to ensure good results after hand surgery. Dr. Meals says, "Treatment of most hand conditions requires modulation of scar tissue. The good news is that scar tissue sticks tissue together; the bad news is that scar tissue sticks tissue together. The hand is such a compact structure that the margin between good and bad may only be the thickness of a few collagen fibers. The only way for a surgeon to look good in this scenario is to enlist a Certified Hand Therapist to oversee the modulation. CHTs are entirely familiar with the diseases and injuries that I treat. CHTs efficiently and effectively manage my patients' hand rehabilitation."
Amanda is an occupational therapist at Androscoggin Valley Hospital and has been on staff since April 2001. For an appointment with Amanda or another member of the AVH Occupational Therapy team, please call (603) 326-5738.
