I have shopped at this store on and off for almost 20 years (it was originally located in the french quarter) and have always loved it. I have, once before, sold some vintage pieces to the store at great prices but not today. I have to say my experience at the store today has me swearing off ever returning to the shop again. The standard there is 40% of the retail price in cash or 50% given in store credit. I was giving no where near the 40% of what the will charge for the items (most items on the racks are $30.00 or more, I received a mere 5 bucks an item). I left feeling robbed and Now really wished I hadn't sold them. They are unethical, dishonest and not to mention just plain rude. The prices are also outrageous for what they are selling which is simpley secondhand clothing. They have absolutely no working knowledge of valuable vintage and it shows. I will never return and feel sorry for the future customers that will be taken by the shop. Some reward for years of patronage. Thanks!
