2 stars-looks like a store you would find in chinatown. I try to stop by once a month-I live in the inland empire-used to live in oc. Looks like they are trying to totally convert to plants only. Few nice/higher priced items left and then it seems they are trying to get rid of the balance of the items there.

I too, have spent a lot of money there.

I have been going to the store in Orange for many years. It has changed a lot. Narrower isles, different kind of merchandise, lot more expensive. I bought plants only, but looked for odds and ends, such as small wind chimes, etc. which were nowhere to be found.

I went to the store yesterday looking for pots for my patio. I found them to be way overpriced. I subsequently went to Armstrong and to my amazement they had much nicer pots for the same price. I was amazed to find how much the store has changed, no more deals.

I've spent a lot of money at this store. I live nearby and did a lot of my decorating from here and used to got some great deals but agree with the other reviewers. Their prices have gone way up and you can get better deals at Home Goods and Kirkland's for a lot of the same stuff. I do like their florals and they used to have a really nice lady there that would help with arrangements and ideas. The new person is quite rude. She just follows you around and gets irritated if the flowers are moved. I need to go there today and hope she's not there.

This used to be a great place to find "off-the wall" items, not so much anymore. Prices are way to high and the place is a death trap, not at all easy to walk through and almost impossible to navigate a shopping cart safely down an aise. What happened?

This store once had great deals. Their products may be "Mainly Seconds" but their prices are now "Mainly Overpriced". The funky cool stuff at low low prices is gone and now they have a regular inventory of overpriced stuff you might find at Big Lots and Cost Plus and other discount stores. Unless of course you need a life sized resin alligator for your family room. In that case you'll need Mainly Seconds

I USED to LOVE shopping at Mainly Seconds stores. A store I believe that had something for everyone and at really great prices.Two of their stores I used to shop at have closed down... leaving only one left. So....one day I decided to venture out there. BIG MISTAKE. The store was like a death trap. My shopping cart got caught on every friggen corner. There was junk everywhere and not good junk but EXPENSIVE junk.
It was a huge disappointment and I'm sad to say that I probably will never shop there again.
PROS:none that i can think of
CONS:expensive, cluttered, poor merchandising, poor quality goods

I was a loyal shopper at Mainly Seconds when the Huntington Beach store was in business. I must agree, that they have moved toward a more costly arena. I traveled from Lake Havasu City, AZ just to take advantage of the selection and great pricing, but now I've moved on to Las Vegas shopping to find better deals. It's ashame!

I have been going to Mainly Seconds for many years, in fact I started when it was still called "Mainly Seconds and Moose Museum". It's a wonderful place to buy house plants, pots, gifts, things you won't find in every other store on the street. There have been some major changes though. The store has been upgraded. In addition to the less pricey items, it now also features many, more expensive, decorative items. Consequently, a lot of the merchandise is way too expensive for my budget. Still unusual and fun to peruse. Their decorator has done a great job, the items are displayed in a very appealing way. Still too expensive for me however.

PROS: Great place to go for gifts, plants, pots, that unusual item.
CONS: Aisles are very tight, not easy to get through the store.

you never know what you might find in this store, when it comes to plants and gardening supplies they seem to have a little bit of everything and you seem to be able to find something new on a regular basis. They have a lot of cute garden ornaments and yard decorations. the parking is good and easy to get to the store.

The store will impress you! Great prices on indoor plants! If you bring any plant and container to store the employees will repot it for you free! Tons of pots and kitchen wares that are unique and priced to sell!

PROS: Lots to look at, free potting of plants
CONS: Need at least 2 hours to browse entire store!

If you're looking for cheap house plants or housewares this is the place for you. They even sell candy and brag about having a Moose museum. The staff is not the friendliest but it is an interesting stock of merchandise that they have. Not very well-kept.

This is a neat store. I dont go here with a purpose, because you never know what you will find! They emphasize gardening, with plants, flowers, and a really nice selection of pots. The prices on these items are very reasonable, and coupons are often found in your local paper. They sell other odds and ends as well, with Christmas time being the best time of the year to find all the things you didnt know you need, but bought anyway!

This is one of those clearance house type stores. The inventory starts at real live plants, and ends with a plaster pig in a butler's outfit for your garden.
The focus is on gardening. Everthing from plants, fountains, to hand tools. The prices are reasonable. The search for items is interesting, if you have the time.
A real live treasure chest.

PROS: wide range of merchandise
CONS: Hard to find items.
