I have been both a buyer and seller at Act 2 for a few years. I have consigned elsewhere and never been as happy as I am with Act 2. Annette and her staff are always very responsive, friendly and professional. I have often found really lovely and sometimes unique items of clothing at a very reasonable price and they also have a lovely selection of accessories. I highly recommend Act 2! Lovely Gals and clothes!!
As far as the indoor flea market part of this establishment, not much there and what is there is overpriced. Environment is dark and not conducive …
The owner was one of the rudest people I've ever met. This store may be a find for buyers but for people who wish to consign something the store takes a ridiculous split of 55 per cent while the seller only gets 45. Even Ebay has better rate structures in a 60/70/80 per cent structure FOR THE SELLER for every $50/100/200 sold. This place reduces prices drastically if your item doesn't sell within a short time frame, without giving you the option to pull the item. And parking is a nightmare! I say, as a seller, move on.
This is a place I will never return to. I have been shopping here for years and was most recently turned off by terrible customer service. Fortuneately Santa Fe has many, many other options so I am not forced to go somewhere that has been disrespectful
THIS CONSIGNMENT STORE IS ONE OF THE BEST IN SANTA FE! IT IS NOT OVER-PRICED, AND THE MERCHANDISE IS QUALITY, NOT JUNK! THE STORE IS CLEAN, LIGHT AND CHEERFUL AND DIANE, THE OWNER, IS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND PLEASANT TO DEAL WITH!! IT IS FUN JUST TO GO IN AND BROWSE AND VISIT EVEN IF YOU DON'T PURCHASE ANYTHING!! I RECOMMEND THIS STORE HIGHLY. NAN
Congeries is a great consignment store. . I wandered the store for almost 2 hours when I got stuck in Santa Fe one day. They have just the right mixture of home stuff and clothing. Somehow they pegged Santa Fe perfectly. I went back as a seller and they were polite and professional and treated me fairly. Their store is now the Santa Fe home of my upcycled silk and linen clothing. My only problem is that I can easily spend anything I earn on consignment without ever leaving the store.Also, the upstairs run by Monte is fabulous and will keep getting better. I am a long-time textile addict and I love having a special place for textile lovers. So now Congeries is my favorite store in Santa Fe and NO, I never met the owners before I went shopping.
Congeries is a fun place to wander around for a while on a weekend afternoon. They have a lot of cool furniture and other items. Their clothing section is not huge, but what it lacks in quantity, it makes up in quality. I've purchased clothing there and I've also brought a number of items in for consignment and have been happy with the experience - the staff is friendly and things seem to sell fairly quickly.
