GREAT SHOPPING EXPERIENCE – I LOVE shopping at Bella Galleria in Highland Park in St. Paul. I have also consigned there and my items sold very quickly. The owner has a keen eye for quality furniture, art and jewelry. Her prices are fair and sometimes negotiable if the item has been there for a while. The vintage jewelry is to die for. Great offerings of bling; wonderful rhinestone pieces, and some more traditional stuff, all from the mid century. I love the sterling pieces as well. They specialize in entertainment accessories, from sets of dishes, to wine glasses to gorgeous lamps and mirrors. I always go there first before going to the other consignment shops. Try it you'll like it!
Best Consignment Shop in Town – I've lived in Chicago and New York, and grew spoiled with a lot of consignment options. There's a few places in town, and in my view this shop is far and away the best. Prices are fair and, for the most part, the merchandise is way cool. On the day I came in, someone was bringing in a cast iron horse sculpture which was simply amazing. The furniture runs the gamut, some amazing hip stuff and some more traditional stuff, but truly something for everyone.
Can Find Some Unique Items – Some excellent quality merchandise, with a variety of styles and prices. In terms of background, I am a young professional with advanced degrees and an interest in design, and I can tell you that there are occasionally some great finds here.
Overpriced & Rude Ownership – This place doesn't even deserve a one star rating!! The owner is EXTREMELY rude. I have a 10 year old son with aspergers who was enjoying going in there to purchase little items for me. We live in the neighborhood... Well, he came home crying one day because the owner was really rude to him and told him he was only allowed to go in there twice a week for 5 minutes at a time. First of all, it takes him a long time to make a decision regarding a purchase. I was P.O'd let me tell you!! I walked in there and gave her a piece of my mind... asked her if she told all of her customers when they could go in there and how much time they could spend there! I had my son bring back everything he had purchased there and get his money back. Read all the reviews before waisting your time and money there. It is WAY overpriced & the customer service is terrible.
Consignment Store – They called me to pick up my items that didn't sell and I stopped by about 4 days after the message. Could not find my things.
The girl was rude and the store looked empty. There are a lot of consignment stores in Mpls/St Paul - maybe they shouldn't act like the only game in town.
