Other reviewer is right about the hours. They're open either 3 or 4 days a week, and they open late, close early, and take an hour or two off for lunch.

It's not worth the hassle figuring out how to get there when they're open though (I've been deliberately vague about the hours, I don't want to drive business there), because the furniture is too expensive for what it's worth. There's nothing wrong with selling expensive furniture, but this is marked up as expensive and antique just because a lot of it is old - old doesn't mean quality, and a lot of the things here are the average junk you'd find at a moving sale of the average pensioner.

Tacky appearance, probably plenty of rot underneath, poor quality materials (some of them are plywood), with a thin veneer thrown over by the original manufacturer or this store to allow a large markup. Sure, there are a couple gems probably buried in this price gouging reimagining of a furniture store. But if there are, they truly are buried in junk. Think $70 for a truly mediocre chair that was probably originally sold for $20. That kind of price gouging.

I can't speak much to the service, either. As well, the (presumable) owner wasn't exactly polite to me. She figured that because I was young and not wearing a button-down I probably don't have a lot of money (she happens to be mistaken on that, but anyway...), and her attitude to me in the couple times I visited (even though I had bought something the last time) wavered from "what are you doing here?" to "buy something or get out." To the other clients she and her husband were very hovering and pushy.

This is a good example of the reason people end up relenting to big box stores instead of small businesses. Some small businesses are good, others leave you fantasizing of market-appropriate prices and impersonal, indifferent customer service.

Why you ask? Let see... first, its located in the rougher part of town. Second, you will be lucky to ever find it open. I have tried a few times during regular business hours and they seems closed, all those times. Through the window, you will see furniture stacked to the ceiling. I am unsure if this place ever opens for business.
