I've never done consignment here, but I had a great experience at Nick's. I was on my was to pick up a washer dryer for my new townhome and saw this shop on the corner and it stuck out at me like a sore thumb... I love unique furniture and I pulled a U turn in the middle of the street to take a look here. From the get go the staff was friendly. The gentleman loading and moving furniture around made sure I parked next to the store so I wouldnt get a ticket or towed as I was in a neighboring homes parking space. He was very funny and gave me a good vibe the moment I walked in. Ive been back several times and he's remembered me each time as well, and always says hello and talks with me. The things here ranged from brand new dinner sets to antique vending machines, tons of Mid century modern gems, a martini glass big enough for a person to sit in, incredible vintage furniture and art to An entire few rows of church pews and the podium to go with it. I was interested in getting a dinner table and chairs and inquired one gentleman about the price. He told me the new diner style table and chairs was about 400$ (The set was brand new, not vintage). It was a bit much for me so I continued to look. As I was walking around I was stopped by a friendly guy who asked if I needed help, who turned out to be Nick. He gave me a good vibe, as anybody with purple hair does for me (As you've got to be an easy going or unique person to have purple hair) We talked for a bit, and had a good conversation about music, and he asked me what I was interested in. I told him the diner table but it was too much for me... he asked me my budget and I told him around 150-200 was about what I was looking to spend. He did some math and ended up selling me the table and 2 chairs for about 250... about half the price of the over 400$ price tag that I was originally told. He also only had one chair in the black I was looking for, but told me he would be getting one in the next day and I could take the one and come pick up the other. I came back and got it, no problem and brought a friend with me to come shop as well. My friend was also wowed by the pieces they have and loved it too. We also found a lifesized statue there that was an almost mirror image of my friend, same red hair and height. Kind of eerie, yet a cool coincidence. Unfortunately the price of it was a bit high... but still a unique find. The only problem is that they have a lot of stock, but no price tags on anything... if you're interested, you have to ask somebody, and they have a small staff, so it's not always the most convenient when you just want to see a quick price. I don't want to ask somebody every time I saw something I liked there, as I would be asking way too many times, and don't want to irritate someone by asking prices on every item in the store. Overall good atmosphere, good (yet small) staff, Great items, outdoors carnival look, and nice outdoor swap meet feel, and Nick made sure I got a good deal on exactly what I was looking for. I've never consigned anything, but according to reviews I don't know if I would here. But if you're looking for the kind of furniture that pops out at you, or your friends are guaranteed not to have, this is the place to go... no IKEA here, and sure to please any mid century modern hound like myself. Check it out! Cheers, all.
