I love this place. My daughter's and I can always find great items here. The staff is over the top accommodating, cheerful and fun! Whether or not you buy something...it is hard to be in a bad mood going in and leave unhappy. So.Much.Fun. Consigning items is also great. I like that items go to Sparrows Nest if purchased or do not meet quality control. Good program here.
I LOVE this place! I travel over 4 hours to go there whenever I can. The least friendly person at this place is better than the best employee elsewhere. I never write reviews but notice that some people are using sites to get back at businesses unfairly. Their selection is wonderful for ALL sizes not for those size 2 or 4 girls. They carry a wide variety of prices as well. Looking for a lower priced simple tee or shirt - they got it and that high end handbag or 3 figure sweater at a much better price. I shop a lot of consignment and thrift stores. I am always finding stains and damage, not here. They treat everyone nicely. My first time there I tried on a dressing room full of clothes and only bought one thing, another time I spent hundreds. Same great attitude. Clean, well organized. My only regrets,
1. I probably shouldn't write this review as it will reduce my choices by increasing business and
2. I wish they were closer.
This is by far the best consignment shop I have ever been in, and I go to a lot of consignment/thrift shops! The prices are great and the staff is super friendly! They were genuinely willing to help me put together an outfit! They must have a lot of repeat customers because they knew many people by their first names! That says a lot about a business. Cannot wait to go back! I think this is my new favorite store!
Very disappointed with the entire process - weeks to get an appointment to drop off consignment items and then an "I could care less" attitude given by the attendant on the phone. You would think that you were trying to get into a Doctors office. Complete waste of time and they take 60% of the profits form your goods. Never settle for more than half.
Not only is Your Best Friend's Closet a great place to find terrific bargains on oh-so-gently used clothes for women and teens, but Oh! What fun it is to shop there! Check out their web site photos and the "Dancing Your Way to Savings" section...then go check it out in person...and you'll see what I mean. The energy is contagious. The selection is huge (juniors, maternity, women's, casual-to-fancy, and loads of accessories) thanks to their consignors, who all seem to have great taste and an unending supply of items for the "drop and run" program. And best of all, these folks are truly connected to their community. Be warned though, this will make shopping anywhere else a tad bit boring.
This place is terrible. It is hard to find, the workers are rude, the store is dirty, the selction is poor, the quality of what little they do have is ridicously below acceptable standards. I have been to better garage sales. This place makes the Salvation Army look like Macy's. Unless you want to punish someone, don't shop here. Try TJ MAXX, Marshal's or your local community for garage sales if you need cheap clothing. If you want rude employees, poor quality, and a sense of filth this is it.
Dear Disappointed from 2009. You must have been having a terrible day back in June when you first started spewing your venom of nasty reveiws about YBFC. Alas, you continue even thru October of the same year. As I remember correctly you (the only unhappy customer of the day) was angry because I wouldn't give you 'some jewelry and other merchandise" for the "charity" you said you were affiliated with. Not a business card, flyer or paperwork to support you cause in your hand, but wanted me to give you free things. Never met you before and if memory serves me right, you said you didn't even live in this state. Hmmmmm seems quite a bit scamish to me. So your 'revenge' was to scribble these bad reviews about a shop you know nothing about. But rest assured, we know LOTS about you. Oh, and lastly, we've been in business 8 years.....couln't be if our store was the way in which you described it. How's your 'charity' doing?
