Great vintage jewelry, wonderful staff! – I was visiting the local South Portland shops recently, and I came across the BEST consignment store! I wish I lived there, I would have bought more items, especially furniture. My college age son could have furnished his whole house on a college budget. Everything was clean and priced to sell, and the young lady that helped me was very friendly. I bought myself some wonderful vintage jewelry and a great lamp. I will be sure to visit there again, next time I am in town. Just leave me some of the treasures!!
Best Consignment Store! – I think Cherished Possessions is the best consignment store in Maine! It is very clean and the items are displayed well. The day I bought furniture three guys working there offered to help me carry stuff out to my car. They were very pleasant and friendly as were the the other staff who assisted me. I have been shopping and consigning there for years and feel the new owners who bought the store four years ago have made wonderful changes and the store is even better than ever! They are very particular about their consignments and go through to make sure they don't carry low value items such as stuff from Christmas Tree Shop. I love it!
NOT Purchaser Friendly – Cherished Possessions used to be a great place to fine quality items at bargain prices.....NOT ANY MORE!
Add to this the less than helpful employees when one wants to load her $500 purchase in her car and you have a doubtful pleasant experience. ADVICE.......don't break your neck to get there, but if you happen to be in the area......stop in.......YOU MIGHT GET LUCKY.......just be prepared to get that big item in your car ALONE or be prepared to listen to the negative flack!
they used to be great – Unfortunately the original owners sold to some new folks and they've brought in lots of chipped and damaged stuff, much from the Christmas Tree Shop frankly, all on consignment yet they are putting unbelievably high prices on everything. It's too bad. I used to go there on a Saturday and spend hundreds, now I can't find a thing and if I do it's priced unrealistically. I've been going there for years and there is one staff person I see each week and she still doesn't know me and asks for my drivers license when I do a check!
