My review has been removed, surprising? No!

Just to repeat then what i wrote yesterday, I went into Venetian Antique Store yesterday afternoon, and was met by a very aggressive and rude Owner, screaming at me. He has no manners, he was screaming at me to get out of his store. I think this man is shady and uses this store for a front of illegal things. How else do you explain him not allowing anyone into this store? He called me an America Cow......

Read the reviews on this man, read his arrest record last year (for battery)

He only received a star because its required to post, he shouldnt even get that.

He does not represent THE COMMONS!!!

This is a Bogus and incorrect statement, don't even Know this person, or this incident.. I'm surprised, as to how INSIDER PAGES, publish wrong and inaccurate info, without looking and verifying the allegations.. Venetian antiques and interiors, have very good costumer service, and it is very reputable business since 2002. we sell top quality product that it is all imported from Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Austria, ETC.at a very competitive and below the retail published price list. all The Manufactures of our furniture line, chandeliers, Murano Glass, Swarovski Crystal, Faberge, etc. are all Top of the line Manufactures, that sell to all the major Department stores across the USA.
.

I am so saddened that there are business owners that would have the lack of ethics. I was vacationing and went into the store. I am a salesperson with high dollar deals myself and would never think of acting like I was treated. I was sold an item that was such a great deal and came home to find out I payed double it's worth.So buyer beware. After reading the reviews I really don't know how this place is in business.

This place is the worst place I have ever shopped at in my life. It was completely roped off and no one and I mean no one acknowledged us when we walked in. I have been in retail management for the last 25 years and this was horrible! No one should ever consider making a purchase with them. Maybe you need to bring your W2 form and a financial statement for them to talk to you. As a consumer please save yourself the frustration. These people do not deserve to be in business!!!!!!!

I was in town visiting from Dallas, and decided to go into the store to browse around. From the moment I stepped foot, the owner came up and demanded to know what I wanted. I was stalked and harassed because I did not have an appointment.

I was stalked and harassed because I did not have an appointment. I've never been treated so badly in my life by a salesman - even if he is the owner. And everything about the store is shady. Like I read in another review, it's a perfect front for an illegal underground operation. It definitely warranted investigating. So I asked around who the owner is and looked up his name: SIMON GIOVANNI COHEN. And he has a CRIMINAL RECORD. The whole store must be a scam and he is a professional con artist - BUYER BEWARE.

I am assuming based on the poor grammar used in the positive reviews on this page that the author is somehow associated with the store, Venetian Antiques & Interiors; or perhaps they are the only two actual customers the store has ever sold an item to seeing as how the whole store is having an 80% off sale in desperation to have business. How comical. When I walked into the store the cheesy salesman was on the phone complaining about how "stupid" the people of this area are. How stupid are you to open a store in Destin, Fl with overpriced crap? If you are so fabulous why don't you go to Paris or New York City? This store and all that it entails is an absolute joke. The workers are over-compensating with terrible attitudes and tacky clothing for the awful merchandise. You can pay for "No Photo" signs, but not "Appointment Only" signs? Grow up, go to business school and pick up some fashion magazines for inspiration on real taste in clothing and physical appearance. The biggest issue with this store is etiquette; I have NEVER experienced such rude behavior from any sales associate, not even at Saks Fifth Avenue or high end boutique. Venetian, LOCK your doors, make "Appointment Only" signs and move back where you came from when you go out of business, which will be soon according to all these negative reviews and the "80% off sign". I've never seen a sale sign at Chanel, Herve Leger, or Dior. What a fraud!

The Venetian antiques and interiors is a crock of crap. My sister and I decided to take a trip to Destin. We drove to the Destin Commons and happen to see the Venetian Antique and Interior store. As being a big fan of antique stores I suggested to my sister we enter. Bad idea..we are in there for about 1 minute then the old crap man with his fake green eye contact lenses says in a rude manner when I was entering the "vip" roped off area, "do you have an appointment". I politely said "no" and kept walking..then he says with his hateful tone, "you have to have an appointment". So we politely left and walked just around the corner. We were both so heated and tired of people walking all over us and judging how much money they think we have or how young we look that we decided to go back in. My sister and I walk back in there and she asks, "do you have a card?" he says, "No!" which is absurd to own a buisness but not have a card. Then she asks "well do you have a number?" he says "No". Then I say " well how do we make an appointment" he says "I dont know", then I ask " why doesnt your door say by appointment only or have a phone number on the door" he says "why would I pay to have that on there". Then after tolerating his childish behavior and his bad accent I say "your very rude, and ugly, and your heart is ugly too" and all he could say was "yea you too". We have never been treated so horribly by a store owner, while we were in Destin everyone was so kind the whole day until we walked into the pits of hell the Venetian Antiques and Interiors store. Which is probably some type of scam anyways. It is disappointing to know that there have been so many bad reports to the Destin Commons management and they have yet to close this place down. Destin Commons has forever lost my buisness unless I see something being done about this discrimanating short little man.

Popped into the store the other day. Tacky, Tacky, Tacky. Two older men working that day. No eye contact. Both had a lingering SMELL on them. Gross. Store display was haphazad, no imagination whatsoever. Overpriced Junk--and I do mean junk.

HORRIBLE.. My husband and I were thrown out for saying "We are just looking at the moment". The owner stated we needed an appointment and this was not a museum! I was in shock!!! There was not one person in the store and this man was just rude!!

As a world traveler i couldn't help being amazed by the wealth of art,antiques, and furniture in the store. if anything can be compared to a museum this must be it.I was delighted to be welcomed by what i have learned later that it was the owner. I may not look as rich or well dressed but that did not stop him from showing me around, yes i must admit that i did not expected to find anything like it in Destin. the city of destin should be happy to have such an establishment. we have added some beautiful pieces to our collection and looking forward to visiting again. I will strongly recommend it to all my friends.

The first time I went into Venetian, I found two items that really interested me but left because I got a weird vibe from these guys. The second time, a thuggish guy who reminded me of a cheesy Russian mobster followed me around, giving me The Evil Eye. I casually asked him "How is business?" and he bristled up. "Why do you ask so many questions?" Maybe he thought I was KGB. I am no expert, but I question how much of their inventory is authentic. They obviously do NOT know that down here on the beach, people who have money do not always dress like it. Beware: bad people, lousy attitudes, questionable inventory.??

Probably the worst store in The Commons, the owner, an short Foreign man stares at you the whole time. He walks around as though he is Royalty. His little teeny bop-per girlfriend was in the store who proceeded to use "intellectual language" like she was educated. When lets be honest she's obviously a gold digger. I have seen her with MANY men in Destin. It's such a shame that space in the Commons couldn't go to someone who deserved it. DO NOT ENTER I promise you will thank me! This man is a maroon!

I would like everybody to know that the person who owns and manages this store is the WORST business person I have ever seen... In fact I would say he is the WORST human being that I have ever met!!! He threw my wife out of the store and told her that she was never to come back! Why did he do this??? I can't say for sure. I suspect that he does not like to be bothered by people who he considers to be either people who have no intention of making a purchase OR people that he thinks does not have enough money to purchase anything from his store. This is truly a very cruel and mean person and has no business working in this type of business - he would be better off flipping hamburgers somewhere... where he does not have to speak or deal with another human being.

I would like to organize a group of people to picket his store. If interested - please contact me through the Destin Commons management office - as they have my contact information.

This man and his business has no place in Destin - we need to work together and force this man to take his business elsewhere.

I gave one star... as this website requires you to choose from one to five. He should get ZERO!

And last - anybody who gives this man any stars is obviously a friend or someone who made a huge purchase in his store - so he gave them good treatment. If you do not spend any money - he treats you like crap and asks you to leave and not come back ever again!!!

To begin with let me note: I only gave the store one star, because you have to give at least one star to leave a review, otherwise I would have left no stars.

I had just walked into the store and the owner came from around a roped off area and asked me in a rude manner, "What do you want?" I told him, ""I just came into look." He then asked harshly "What are you looking for?" I told him "Nothing in particular, I just wanted to see what you have." At that point he hostilely told me to "leave the store, it was only open to dealers that day." This was on a Saturday afternoon. He snidely told me "I could come back some other time, tomorrow or maybe Monday." I live out of town, so this would not be convenient. I would like to add there was nothing on the doors to indicate they were closed that day to the public. Furthermore, after I went back to my vehicle and waited with my Stepfather for my Mother to return from shopping, We observed other shoppers with shopping bags and children enter and stay. They certainly did not look like dealers.

On the whole, he was one of the rudest owners I have ever encountered and I will be contacting the Destin Commons management about his rude and hostile manner.

I also had a horrible experience at this store. My mother and I visited after being attracted by their impressive window display. The owner was hostile and shadowed us around the front of the store - he kept the main part of the store roped off, so we were only able to look at what was in the very front. My mother asked him a question about the origin of a piece, and he was very rude in telling her that he did not know. I lingered a little longer than necessary at that point, when I realized that he wanted us to leave, simply to annoy him. We had done nothing wrong to deserve that kind of treatment - we kept our voices low, we were dressed nicely, we did not touch the merchandise. His reaction was very prejudiced against us, although I have no idea on what grounds - we are white so it could not have been racism (although that was certainly what it felt like), we do not have accents as we have lived all over the country, we are middle class - I don't know what he could possibly have been offended by.

I honestly don't understand why they would locate their business in a mall if they feel that the average person has no business in their store. It was unexpected (and, frankly, amusing) to find that kind of attitude from someone who has to rent his store's location in a strip mall.

I honestly don't understand why they would locate their business in a mall if they feel that the average person has no business in their store. It was unexpected (and, frankly, amusing) to find that kind of attitude from someone who has to rent his store's location in a strip mall.

Business Response:

This is a Bogus and incorrect statement, don't even Know this person, or this incident.. I'm surprised, as to how INSIDER PAGES, publish wrong and inaccurate info, without looking and verifying the allegations.. Venetian antiques and interiors, have very good costumer service, and it is very reputable business since 2002. we sell top quality product that it is all imported from Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Austria, ETC.at a very competitive and below the retail published price list. all The Manufactures of our furniture line, chandeliers, Murano Glass, Swarovski Crystal, Faberge, etc. are all Top of the line Manufactures, that sell to all the major Department stores across the USA.

I looked everywhere for the type of items that this store sells. I was amazed by the selection and the personalized service. I love this store and would highly recommend shopping here.

I would not recommend stepping foot into Venetian Antiques & Interiors. I was in the store for the first time to look and the owner had the whole store roped off as if only "rich" paying customers could pass through. The owner and his employee were standing on guards by their green velvet ropes. A customer was asking the price of an item and the owner snapped, "It's not for sale!" Then the customer asked, What is for sale?" and the owner said nothing in here is for sale!" and waved the woman off. I was so disgusted at the owner's horrible customer service I left immediately.
