Referencing some of the other reviews: yes the prices are high on some items. You HAVE to work this store's sales: every major holiday, all is 30% off. On Wednesdays, if you are 50+, three colors of tags are half priced on clothes and some accessories. About the staples: yes they annoy me. You can however 99% of the time carefully remove them at home by prying the legs of the staple up with a sharp knife and gently remove the staple from the garment. STILL ANNOYING. PLUS SIZED clothes are separated for both women (Queen section) and men (Big and Tall). This is awesome. They have a discount jewelry case with green X marking half-off the regular price. They separate out the quality clothing (coldwater creek, chico's, etc) into a Boutique Aisle (pink tags) which means less time sorting through lesser quality items. NOTE: ALBUQUERQUE HAS A HUGE NUMBER OF THRIFT STORES. Each has a different system for pricing, discounts, and how items are sorted. This store is not for everyone, but it has a large dedicated following of regular customers. CASH ONLY is mildly irritating but i just make sure to hit the CU-ATM 1/4 mile south on Juan Tabo before I go inside. On Friday's the adjacent Furniture warehouse is open. Most items there are really in sad shape, strange to see that owned by same people. But i don't go there for furniture!!
My wife and I were told about this place being different and they were right. It is both a resale and consignment shop. The items are clean and in great shape. They even do some additional other knitting and sewing work. We are listing them for some of our Baby shower items. Books, Christening, Toys and Clothes. So much is here and very organized. This is just one of those personal local shops that is wonderful for what it provides. Tell them Frank and Alicia sent you. We were hooked right away.
This store is just amazing! The best customer service around and super great deals on quality childrens clothes and shoes! The Tot Shop has won me over. They offer the best consigments deals around, I have always received a great pay out and they are super trustworthy. Hands down the best childrens store in town! This is the ONLY place I will do consignment because their service is top notch and can't be beat.
