I looked for a television armoire literally for years that had pocket doors and ample space for dvd's, music etc. I went into the Dump very cautious after reading reviews and was not shy about informing associates of that fact. And yes, I READ EVERYTHING! I walked by a beautiful Philippe Langdon piece afraid to look at the sticker as I knew this was at least a $5,000-$6,000 piece. After saying a quick prayer (lol) I checked the price and it was on clearance. I couldn't believe it. Not a scratch on it! After checking around the ATL area and speaking with high end furniture stores here, the cheapest that I found the piece was $4800. When I told the owner the DUMP had it for $2100, he said " Ma'am , don't walk, don't run, fly back to that store!" Needless to say, I took his advice and the GORGEOUS piece that took 3 huge men and my hubby to carry in, sits in my living area now. EVERYONE compliments the piece (90100-62 English and French Walnut Entertainment Center on Philippe Langdon site) and attempt to buy the almost 8 ft beauty off my hands which will never happen.:) Therefore, I guess it depends on who you deal with and what you are looking for. My experience was seamless thank God!
After hearing about this shop "you need to go see the sisters!" from two of my friends, I finally made my way to Chamblee. It wasn't easy to find, as it is tucked away on a street just behind Peachtree Blvd. Don't let the Peachtree Road address fool you. It isn't on Peachtree Blvd, it is on Peachtree Road in Chamblee, also known as Antique Row. Just mapquest it, or set your GPS and you won't have a problem. Anyway, this store is just full of wonderful bargains. I bought beautiful sectional that was used in the movie "The Blind Side". It is quite the conversation piece, and a bargain. What surprised me was how clean and well organized the store is. If you are expecting a store that smells musty and has things that are "beat up" you will be surprised. The isles are wide enough to get around and see all the unusual things that are everywhere you look. I went through three times and saw new things each time. Just go see for yourself!
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.
