The Story

Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. My name is Tara Klassen. I have been married for 15 years to a man I love and respect, I'm a proud momma to four beautiful, and sometimes very trying, children, and a worthy daughter of the One True King.

I have worked countless jobs in nearly every industry.  From managing a video store (who remembers those?) to cleaning houses and everything in between.  All the while raising a family, moving to our home in Cloverdale, BC, and trying to make ends meet.

With a large family, I have had to come up with ways to stretch our dollars. One way I have done that is by using consignment stores to sell my quality used items. You’ve heard it said that ‘one man’s junk is another man’s treasure’. But my stuff wasn't junk, I just didn’t need it anymore. It still had value and I needed to access it.

I have had a dream to own a consignment store for many years, but the timing was never right.  Until now.  Out of my experience in commerce, and customer service, and a love for shoes and never paying retail, Secondhand Diva was born.  I believe I will bring something fresh, yet timeless.

We are a company that gives back, and so we have partnered with local ministries.  These agencies allow us to donate unsold footwear to them, which go directly to women in need.  


My goal is to provide an easy and affordable online shopping experience, and also a hassle free and lucrative consignment experience. My motto here is Serving Women; Loving Shoes.  Women will always be the priority for me, and I hope I will hear from you how best I can serve you.  I hope you'll join me.
