I have always liked & visit Memories fairly often, I like to see what changes and hopefully find something I can't live without. I have read the other reviews, and what people don't want to acknowledge is the theft that goes on everywhere, and we all pay for that. Either with the inconvenience of having to check a purse, or just through pricing. Business owners, especially those who have consigned items have even more need for higher scrutiny, because they don't own everything for sale in their building. I for one, hate to bring any purse into an antique store for fear of whacking something off a shelf. I know many retail stores that have "big purse" policies, not just antique stores. As for poor foot traffic, we had trouble finding a parking spot 2 weeks ago! Check it out if you are a browser or a buyer!
Rented a booth there for a time and also have shopped there a few times. The owner (Pete) is very rude and only cares about his money. According to his lease, he only requires a 28-notice or "month-to-month" lease, but when I put in my notice to stop my booth (due to VERY poor traffic there, which is surprising being right off Hwy 41) he suddenly requires me to be responsible for a month and a half of booth rental - AND threatens to make me pay for days "he let me move in early". Mind you - his lease is so shotty that there are loopholes to all of this - and his "letting me move in early" was not included in the lease. If it wasn't going to be a bigger headache dealing with court costs and more time dealing with Pete - I definitely would have challenged his lease and business practices. All of that aside - walk-in traffic is poor to this mall, and lots of booth vacancies. I would highly recommend Fox Valley Antique Mall for shopping and vendor purposes... NEVER AGAIN will deal with Memories or recommend others to go there!
Best Antique Mall in Wisconsin
I've been going here coming up from Milwaukee a few years now. Great work, very detailed, trustworthy. Reasonable prices.
