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!
This Antique Mall is AWESOME!! It has the largest variety of inventory in the area. It is not snooty and the staff have always been incredibly helpful. I have no problem with their large bag policy - a lot of businesses do that. It is pretty common. The only people who should be offended are shoplifters. I don't think the area is bad either. The photo place (what used to be Epperson's) caters to high end clients. I love this place!!
It has a little of Everything. Jewelry I love and they have a lot of it. If you ever need a particular color then Antique Co-op is the place to go. There Jewelry collection is unbelievable. Everything is priced so reasonably and anyone can afford it. They also have other items like Postcards, Vintage Valentines, Old Photos, Glass figurines, Pottery and much much more!!!
This antique store is a must go to place. It has wonderful selections and great deals. There is always at least half dozens vendors having sales in their booths. The employees are always very helpful. The large bag policy is not a big deal for me and I don't mind leaving it in my trunk or leaving it behind the desk. The location is great and easy to get to.
A fun place to spend an hour or two looking for hidden treasures.Very friendly staff!Chris is especially fun to talk to, as is Kris (the owner, a.k.a. "Mother Phoenix").Wide selection from wildly different vendors.Nice, central location in NW OKC, too -- just east off May Avenue. A great place to take out of town guests for an hour or two of shopping.
I've been going to this lovely antique store for about a year now. I take classes from the owner Kris. I enjoy the people and all the booths. I always find a lot of things I love and remember from my childhood. It is just a plus that I get to do the water paintings. Come on in and bet you find some things, too. Leggerling@aol.com
I was told about this Vendors Mall from a friend. When i was passing through OKC I stopped, and I'm glad i did. The place is great, and the people where fantastic, and very friendly. Great place i would highly recommend stopping there if in the area, or make a special trip. It's worth it!!!
They have moved just down the street, but review is still the same! You can always find something great at Sabi. M.A. and Peg are wonderful and welcoming. Anything from specialty soap (which is a must have, glass bottle kind) to one of a kind vintage finds you won't be disappointed.
Clean, well lighted, and handsome venue filled with a wide array of well selected antiques. (No junk here -- that's a major improvement over most of the so called "antiques" businesses in the OKC area.)Terrific, family-owned business I'm proud to patronize and refer others to.
