Pros: Friendly, Fun, Great Selection, Sales , Very personable and knowledgeable staff! I always find great pieces from as small as ANTIQUE Jewelry to as large as ANTIQUE furniture! And anything in between. The prices are very cost effective, which is great for dealers , as well as anyone shopping on a fixed income or budget. They have layaway and are always willing to work with you if you need any help regarding the knowledge of a piece , etc. While it's all done without the fancy technology; they have a working ANTIQUE cash register! : you are still able to use any debit/credit card and since you're not paying for high cost computer systems to generate a "pretty receipt"; that in turn gives you as a customer a chance to get the best prices for your purchases. I would recommend this store to anyone that truly loves to Antique!
Cons: No Cons, except I wish they were open on Sunday's.
Pros: Mr. Malcom (Preston) refinished a "library table" for me which was badly damaged by a leaky dishwasher. Preston repaired it with great skill. I couldn't have asked for a better job. In addition, he's a fine historian/ detective, explaining to me the time the table was built, the difference between mahogany and wild cherry, and speculating on how the table came to be. Very interesting man! The price for the restoration was also more than fair. I gladly recommend him.
Pros: Very professional work. Took the time to research the era of the piece he restored. Used authentic tools where possible with similar paint colors as original carpenter.
Comment: My pie safe was held together with bungee chords when we left it at the wood shop. A few days later the project was already well under way and the piece was sturdier than I had ever seen it. My mother had previously restored the piece more than 45 years ago and I know she would be as proud of this end result as I am. Very satisfied customer.
Comment: This shop actually made my car worse - it will cost $1000s to repair what he did. On top of that he charged (stole) thousands from me.
