My firm advice: SKIP IVANA. Unprofessional, unorganized experience. I had a gut instinct when they arrived to pick up the furniture. And you know you should always follow such intuition. My daughter moved after the abrupt loss of her spouse, and consigned a very expensive set of furniture with Vicki. The very young boys who picked up the furniture from my home had no moving blankets, I provided my own blankets to them (never returned) in hopes the quality items were not damaged on arrival, they were just put into a truck, no straps either. One young boy had an asthma onset while picking the items up from my home. There was no physical agreement sent out, as promised, after multiple calls on my daughter's behalf, and upon receipt of the check for the items, we were all in shock at the price the items sold for. We could have sold it on craiglist. My daughter called to discuss her disappointment, and Vicki was less than personable, defensive and cold. There was a lack of acceptance of the lack of communication and actually blamed my daughter for not asking for that paper consignment agreement never sent out by Ivana's/Vicki. I am saddened that a small business owner would behave so cruelly and defensively - and actually shift blame/responsibility on the other person. This is just bad business practices. Promises are made, but definite customer no-service right here, especially if you question the anything. My daughter was definitely taken advantage of. I am not sorry to share this reality, as no one else should have this upset happen.
Not only a great selection and friendly staff, but I was surprised how big this place is! It took me over an hour to just look at everything. Ivana has an amazing selection, no matter what your niche is.
Absolutely my favorite consignment shop in the Milwaukee area. The owner is very honest and trustworthy and great to work with. I have been a consigner for the last year and a half and continue to be impressed.
My New Fav – I've been working with Ivana's Trunk for years as a consigner. It has been a very profitable and professional relationship. I can't give enough praise to Vicky for how hard she works for me. I bring in high-end/quality merchandise, and she generally sells it and pays me quickly. Highly recommend you visit Ivana's Trunk. Maybe you'll end up buying some of MY stuff ;)
This business does absoilutely nothing that they say they will do. Never received a promised contract (one year). Called me and said most items would not sell and they were donating. Offerred to send tax form for wrie-off. Never received. Have called twice an have not received.
Great treasures- very honest owner. A pleasant experience shopping or hoping to sell!
Great Holiday Shopping – My husband and I were doing a little tour of the antique shops around Milwaukee. Was very excited to stumble upon Ivana's. Loads of good finds. Very helpful and kind staff. Highly recommend it!!
A definite must see! – I'm up in Milwaukee staying with friends for the week, and I'm SO happy they knew about this shop. I've been collecting brewaphernalia for years and came across some rare cans. Cheers, Ivana!
Great Stuff Again and Again – Every time I wonder in, I find really great stuff. My girlfriend and I to a little circuit of antique shops in the North Shore one Saturday a month. Ivana's is always one of our favorites. Ivana is always really helpful and has lots of great information and tips. Thanks!
Years of Great Service – Vicky has been a shining star in Thiensville for years. Lots of great finds at Ivana's Trunk!!!
