Overall

I love this store!! There is no other place like it. There are so many wonderful antiques and vintage items to choose from.

Overall

I would like to start off by saying that they have a nice selection of vintage items, but not very many antiques.



The other day, I went into Bumbledees looking for a Mother's Day gift, and I came across a butterfly cigarette case (missing the lighter it was supposed to include) I knew i just had to buy. I payed $40 for it on sale under the impression that it was a hard to find collector's item. I'm on a tight budget so as soon as I had internet access i of course looked up its value. I found it listed on Ebay for $16 brand-new with the lighter included. The case features a monarch butterfly surrounded by flowers and reads 'Call A Rose' on both sides. it is not vintage nor very rare, it's actually a few years old. I immediately called up the owner and told her what i had found and she told me I would have to speak with the dealer who had it for sale in her store. So I left my name and number and waited for a call. The dealer called the same night, he was quite rude and condescending, telling me he would not issue a refund nor would he take back the item. neither of which I had asked for yet. After he repeating multiple times that he had seen the item sell for up to $60 (which does not mean that it is what its worth) and that antique/vintage dealers never give refund or do returns, he offered a partial refund of $10 to "appease" me, as he worded it. He also told me he removed the lighter from the case and priced it separately, which I though was unfair. The next afternoon when i went to pick up the $10 refund, the owner was also extremely rude telling me that she has never given and refund and never will again, and that I can do my future shopping online. Which she was implying that she could care less if she gets my business or not. Im so appalled by the way I was treated, Ive never had an experience like this from a local shop! I just cannot believe it. It was my first time making a purchase, and my second visit to the shop. it's very disappointing that I will have to travel out of town to find actual antique shop that will appreciate my business. I truly believe that they are preying upon people who dont know any better. Buyers beware.
