Oh my gosh, Ms AntiqueGuru are you really that grumpy or are you just a jealous competitor? I have been to the Phoenix and have never been treated so well in any store. It is charming and so warm and friendly - it feels like wrapping up in a warm blanket on a cold day. I've been to this sort of mall around the city and around the county but this one is special. I loved all the different vendor areas; they are all different but, they share a commonality - charm and unique diversity. All of the vendors that I met seemed to help each other by escorting the customer to other sites that might have their desired item. I met one delightful lady in the Phoenix, who told me that she had been coming here for a while and now came not only to shop and buy but , also to visit the very friendly owner, Kris. I have to admit, I feel the same way. I guess it is almost redundant to say, "I absolutely love the Phoenix"
What??? " Me thinkest thou protesteth too much." Guru-san. All the antique stores in Okc do a lot of good things for the city and all are not perfect but hey they work hard. The Phoenix stands out as one of my fav's for many reasons and the layout is one of the most charming and magical due primarily to it's age (1952) and former uses: TG&Y, Suburban Contemporary Furniture, etc, etc. and of course the ghost old man Pennington who developed most of NW Okc. And show me an antique store in a high rent district and I'll show you over the top sale prices! Go see for yourself and oh by the way, good job to all the antique stores Okc. Everyone works hard and deserves an atta atta!
We hired Matt to conduct my estate sale at the beginning of the summer in 2009. I was feeling overwhelmed and didn’t know what to do. Matt had been referred to me via a business associate. He came to my house and conducted an evaluation. Within 20 minutes, I knew I had made the right decision to contact him. His professionalism, knowledge, and good nature put me at ease. He handled every single detail of the sale (a sale which, by the way, was a tremendous success.) He even handled the charitable donations at the close of the sale! Art Deco lamp: $150.00. Campaign style desk: $350.00. McNeil Liquidations: priceless!
