After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I was excited to check out this store. I realize any second hand store is going to be very "hit or miss", but I was disappointed with the level of designers in stock and the totally cramped store....More

What a horrible experience - as one user mentioned, the staff is so rude it completely sours any good finds this store has to offer. We went on a Sunday and watched in absolute horror as the owner angrily shoved several older ladies out the...More

Fun to look through the clothes; sometimes you can find a real gem. However, beware: the owner is astonishingly rude, as other reviewers note. No eye contact, dismissive, treats you like you're a bother. I'm one of those people who just has trouble spending money...More
