I have always liked & visit Memories fairly often, I like to see what changes and hopefully find something I can't live without. I have read the other reviews, and what people don't want to acknowledge is the theft that goes on everywhere, and we all pay for that. Either with the inconvenience of having to check a purse, or just through pricing. Business owners, especially those who have consigned items have even more need for higher scrutiny, because they don't own everything for sale in their building. I for one, hate to bring any purse into an antique store for fear of whacking something off a shelf. I know many retail stores that have "big purse" policies, not just antique stores. As for poor foot traffic, we had trouble finding a parking spot 2 weeks ago! Check it out if you are a browser or a buyer!
