Why we are closed

First I would like to thank all of the loyal customers that came by every week- your well-wishes, advice, and kind words- they mean the world to me. You will always have a special place in my world. But as you know the world, unfortunately, doesn’t run on well-wishes. I poured my heart into the store to give you the best products I could find while carving a niche out and trying to make a living. The kindness I exuded wasn’t always reciprocated by others looking to give a small business owner a shot.

Keeping true to what I believe in many of the merchandise that I purchased for sale I donated to those less fortunate. And while I search for another way to make my dent in the universe I want remind you that everything you have is the result of someone taking a chance on you. At some point, someone helped you out and gave you the chance to succeed. While I continue to search for that someone, I want you to remember that it’s not what you wear on the outside- what you drive or how much money you have- it’s who you are on the inside that matters. And right now, I’m the richest person in the world.

It’s the holiday season

This is just the best time of the year, isn’t it? I can’t think of another time when we sit back and reflect on the relationships we have with one another and what we mean to each other. Right now I’m sitting back and reflecting on 2011. I’m thinking about all of my customers, consignors, supporters, and friends. Thanks you for all you do to support my little shop, I truly appreciate each and every one of you.

America is about dreaming, about following your dreams and making a difference. Every day I wake up and feel so fortunate to know that I have helped so many people find great items for their home or as gifts for loved ones. For 2012 I can’t wait to see what great finds my consignors bring in and encourage all of my wonderful customers to stop in and bring friends with you to share the excitement of discovery.

Have a great holiday season!

We love Mom!

I know what you’re thinking- “buy mom a gift for mother’s day at a consignment store? No thanks!” So let me debunk that myth. Shopping for mom at a consignment store is perfect for your children! Kids are always looking for a neat way to show mom how much they care and are typically shopping on a an allowance.

But consignment stores are for more than just children, they are for everyone. Big box retail stores offer loads of ‘most of the same’, however shopping for mom at a consignment means this Sunday her gift will be unique.

Let’s review the benefits of a Consignment store for Mother’s Day:

  • Reasonably priced items
  • Always unique
  • Perfect for those on a budget or allowance

While your out this week looking for the perfect gift for mom, stop into your local consignment store and see what they have to offer.

Happy shopping and Happy Mother’s day!

All about the customer

Recently I’ve noticed many shows popping up promising instant riches buying storage lockers. Shows like Auction Hunters and Storage Wars showcase ‘average’ people buying storage units and finding incredible antiques, lost treasures, or amazing finds worth hundreds or tens of hundreds of dollars.

The truth of situation is this- these are all best case scenarios. If your in the market for a certain item its best to not risk whatever cash you have on hand on a gamble. The people in these shows have an incredible amount of disposable cash and have been doing this for years. That being said, it can be good fun to attend one of these auctions.

At the end of the day, if your looking for certain item stop by our store or call us first. We can hunt down those items for you and provide you with the best customer service.
