.

Karen??s Consignment Gallery, located on the cusp of Point Loma and Ocean Beach, has been servicing San Diego for over 20 years. While the store changed ownership a year ago, little has changed for this ever so popular consignment store. The shop has built up a great reputation as a fair place to buy used, but high-end, beautiful furniture.
To many customers that walk the floor, the store is like a treasure chest. Each room has been carefully sectioned into smaller vignettes of matching furniture to help the flow of the store, and it??s easy to see how each piece of furniture can be used in your own home.
??Some consignment stores just throw everything together in the same room,? says owner Rob Murray. ??We try and keep matching furniture together so people can really see how things can work together in one room.?
The furniture within the store is everything from antique to contemporary with one common trait: everything is of great quality, made from great materials. You can find handcrafted home goods, bedroom sets, couches, antique chests and china cabinets. They also sell art, dish sets and patio furniture.
Karen??s Consignment Gallery is very particular when it comes to what they accept into the store. They take great care in making sure everything is of a certain standard and they price their items fairly. When shopping at the gallery, the customer service is exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable about the items and extremely helpful when looking for something particular. Overall, it??s a wonderful place to purchase furnishings and a fun place to hunt for hidden treasures.

It is a great store for true finds and items in great shape and high quality. I have had things consigned there and they go fast. However, they are very, very picky when it comes to accepting items especially the woman that works there. I was completely in shock when she accepted some lower end items of mine and didn't take the others that were quite unique and high quality. As I was walking out the store, a woman saw me with my items and asked me if I would sell them to her and I did, so it was their loss. Thus, beware. You get 60 percent and they get 40 percent, which is a great deal. However, I know take my items elsewhere to consign because they take everything I bring. Otherwise, it you want to purchase something, it is a great place. If you want my advise, the gentlemen that work there are more accepting of the items than the sole woman who works there.

I've found a mixed bag of things at Karen's Consignment Gallery. Some of the antique pieces I've found have been stunning and other pieces, labeled antique weren't. Their prices are very reasonable for the most part and if you were inclined to restore and fix some of their pieces, you'd be able to sell them for a much higher price than what you paid for them.

I am an Interior designer and I have worked with Karen's and her staff for years. Both as a buyer and consigner. As a buyer I know that if I want to find a quality piece at a great price Karen's is my first and usually last stop. As a consigner and not having enough hours in the day, I appreciate Karen's policy of not bothering consigners for 90 days. I always get a fair price for my items are are paid promptly. \r\n\r\nKaren retired last year and the new owner is Fabulous! She brings a young, new spirit to her showroom. She has a great personality and is never too busy to walk the floor and introduce herself and offer her assistance. I have seen her helping her staff load furniture for her customers. That to me is giving personalized service.\r\n\r\nI personally will continue to be a devoted costumer/consigner and highly recommend Karen's for HIGH END goods. \r\n\r\nPhoenix Designs\r\n\r\n

We it appears as Karen is back, the change in ownership did not last! Well, hopefully Karen had a chance to rest and come back a little warmer. She could learn from her staff they always are nice. She recently sold some items for us and we never expected to get the money so fast. It is always like walking into a new store; never should we see a stale inventory of non moving junk. The store seems to go from good to great and reverse depending in consigners. I still this store worth the travel from east county. Forget Craigslist; you never will have to meet and wait and bargin, let Karen's staff do this. Still a great place and Karen glad when you smile and say hello!
