013024 The Store Is Still 30% Off….See You Soon!

The store is still 30% off! Stop in soon and pick up some bargains. We will be open until February 25th, so there is still time to stop in and see us!

Thank you to all of our wonderful customers and consignors for making this such a great experience. Me and my incredible staff are going to miss y’all very much!

Check out this shot from the back of the store as it is emptying out. Amazing! Thank you for your support!

And, good things are coming.  Moving the business back online is going to allow me more time to focus on new ideas and businesses.  We plan to host some popups in the new warehouse with themed vignettes.  Can’t wait to share more of our exciting new ideas with you!

Here is a photo of the store back in 2018 before we opened and it is getting just as empty.

We have made the decision to be open until February 25th…a Sunday.  There will be a party to celebrate on March 1st.  More details to come.

When my grandmother passed away and we decided to close her store after 50 years, we had no idea how long the liquidation would take.  It ended up taking 2 full years and we closed on the 2nd anniversary of her passing, August 2nd, 2002.

We will close our doors on February 25th, but will still have the store until March 1st to move everything out and then celebrate the store with a party on Friday, March 1st starting at 1 pm.  It will be a potluck and BYOB.

For those of you who don’t remember, I opened the store on Thursday, March 1st, 2018 on what should have been my dad’s 84th birthday.  So…I will lock the doors for good on Friday, March 1st, 2024 on what should have been my dad’s 90th birthday.

My grandmother always told me that the antiques/collectibles business was cyclical.  An example, maybe oak and Asian antiques aren’t popular today, but they will be again.  I also believe that retail is cyclical, and right now is not the best time for brick & mortars.  Hopefully, it will swing back that way in the near future, but for now (just like we did 22 years ago), my business is moving back online.

The sale continues!  30% off until Sunday, February 4th.  Entire store is on sale EXCLUDING FixturesNO EXTRA discount on Fixtures:

The Promen Wooden Hangers in the Clothing Store are all for sale at $2 each or you can get 10 for $15.

There is one 71/2′ Christmas tree left at $95.

I will be pricing more fixtures as we go.  For example, the Pier One Tall Rolling Shelf Units are $175 and the shorter ones are $125.

In happy news, Jo Dallas arrived yesterday, so please stop in the store and say Hi to her.  My friend Chris Wade also showed up yesterday and the three of us went to dinner.  I love my friends!

Once again, here are the details of the closing process for my consignors.
