Spending time at Context is a learning experience. The owners, Jeff Shelley and Pui Panich are informed about their collection and carry the most diverse range of products I've seen at any furniture showroom anywhere. In addition, they are well read, have several very interesting books and hard-to-find catalogs around the store and are endlessly enthusiastic about design. The collection has classics (Wegner), pieces likely to become classics (Grcic, Morrison) and pieces that expand one's design awareness (Dixon). Context carries furniture, lighting, rugs and other items like filing boxes, trashcans, etc. My wife and I have bought six Grcic stools and a Cappellini sofa from them and have found their prices to be not only competitive, but excellent. It is a pleasant surprise to find modestly priced pieces that one really wants to own, proving that it isn't discounting product, but knowing how to curate for value that counts when selecting inventory for a store. In addition, Jeff and Pui are wonderful people and I would recommend a visit to the store on that basis alone.

New location in Alpharetta- If you are looking to consign or buy designer apparel, shoes, accessories, or purses then you have definitely got to stop by here. Located in a busy shopping center on Windward Parkway next to several boutiques, this small consigner boutique is perfect for the sophisticated, young at heart, designer loving gal. I have personally purchased several items, including a BCBG dress, summer wool and silk Caroline Herrea pencil skirt, Carlisle color block pencil skirt, and Tom Som crushed velvet and patent leather black and white closed toe chunky heel shoes. Not only were these prices incredibly low(no more than $60), but I did not have to dig to find just what I was looking for. When you first walk in the small and organized boutique, within 5 mins you will know where you need to venture i.e. styles, season, type of apparel, sizes, and occasion.
I come to Rag-O-Rama every year around Halloween to piece together whatever celebrity couples costume my boyfriend and I decide to do for the year. Their prices are great. They always come through with at least one of the items that we need. A couple of years ago we were Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain. ROR was a one stop shop for our whole entire costume from head to toe. I see other reviewers that aren't a fan of their parking lot. There's a sign in their lot in plain view that says, "Rag-O-Rama Parking Only". It's simple people. If you plan to shop hop around Little 5 after your visit to ROR, you should either A) move your car after leaving ROR or B)not park there at all.
