wow the negative reviews are so off-base I can't believe it! Let me say first that I have very high expectations when it comes to service and professionalism. I am very picky about quality and expect fair prices. Aside from saying this is my favorite store in the country the best endorsement I can give is from last year. I was an extra in Love and Other Drugs and mentioned to an actress from NYC/LA, whose mother is a well known designer, that she might enjoy Kindred Spirits. The actress later thanked me because she had a great time!

The negative comments fall into several categories:

1. Pre-date the current owner and should be ELIMINATED!
2. Are made by naive individuals :
A. with unrealistic expectations of what used things are worth
B. Think clothes that have NOT been cleaned are sellable
C. Have little experience with nice consignment protocol
D. Have never been to Goodwill
E. Have poor social skills!
F. Must have poor listening skills

This consignment shop is the worst consignment shop I have ever been to! Not nice at all! They steal ! We dropped off consignment and figured give it time to sell and when we came back they said if you do not pick up your money within 3 months then you lose it!! Never heard that before!!!!! DO NOT GO TO THIS CONSIGNMENT STORE!!!!!!!

I am baffled by the negative comments on this site. I have had consistently great experiences with both buying & selling at Kindred Spirits. The girls who work there are so friendly and helpful, I always have so much fun shopping there! The staff is extremely knowlegable about what sells and does not sell, so I dont take offense if they tell me something wont sell, because Id rather save it if it's something I like, or just donate it if I still dont want it. The sales they have are great... You can really find some awesome pieces for great prices. On Manic Mondays most of the inventory is marked down. However, anything consigned (dropped off) in the past two months or so is exempt from the sale, so you know you'll still get top dollar for the stuff you recently dropped off. All in all, this is a great store. I drive to wexford from Mt Lebanon at least once a week, bc this store truly has great quality merchandise and there's always a great find! I recommend KS to all of my friends!

UGH! Frustrating experience as a seller. I just stopped in to check my account and I am taking home a whopping $5.20 for a VB bag. There are WAY to many theme sales going on and as a seller your items don't stand a chance to have any amount of time in the store before they are subject to discount. Had I known this, I NEVER would have brought some of my better items to consign. Now you only get 40% of the selling price instead of a 50/50 split so I agree it is disappointing. Some of the staff are rude and they are always sweeping while the store is open and telling people that they're closing before you even make it through the door. They have some decent items but mostly as they like to say "dated" items are choking the racks. No wonder the daily need for theme sales. Check around if you are thinking of becoming a seller.

I just returned from Kindred Spirits and just had to write a quick review. What a wonderful little place!! I am not a big fan of consignment shops ... or should I say I wasn't until today when I went to Kindred Spirits for the first time. The selection is wonderful, the sales people are so nice and I did not feel pressured to buy at all like in some stores that you go to. But I course I had to pick up a few things ... just too cute to resist!! I think I just found my new favorite boutique!!

I just love shopping @ Kindred Spirits! I have been a longtime customer. I enjoy getting a hot fresh cup of coffee & chatting w Mary Ann, Barb, Deb, Chris, Kimberly & Heather. They're all SO awesome & make my shopping experience very special. The best part is, when I get tired of my home goods, I take them to KS and replace them with great next to new accessories! In fact, I just got an absolutely beautiful white washed twin bed head & foot board, it's even more special to me, it belonged to Mary Ann's daughter. I LOVE to save my time & money, by recycling & finding the things I need @ Kindred Spirits in a one stop shop! It's the best little secret in Wexford...Now it's yours!;) CC Aber

SCAM! The owner is not loyal to longtime consignors. She now takes a 60/40 split in her favor and doesn't tell you. They just ask you to "sign" the new consignors agreement. The employees also set items aside that are brought in to buy for themselves and you never get top dollar in that case. Depending on who is there also depends on what they take/refuse. Overall disappointing.

I stopped selling there because I think they have too many sales, and I don't get top-dollar for anything I sell. They have seasonal sales, whereby items are around 75% off. Last fall they sold a very expensive picture of mine as "summer seasonal" simply because it featured cherries in a bowl. I ended up making a measly $4 from the sale! I was so mad; I will never bring anything there to sell again. If I had known they were going to give my picture away, I would have never brought it there. I bring my stuff to The Monkey's Trunk in Mars now. She sells my stuff, and for a good price, too.

I totally don't understand any of the negative comments I just read on this site about Kindred Spirits. I SHOP there, I CONSIGN there and I have NEVER had a bad experience at this store, EVER!! I truly think they do a fabulous job there both in customer service as well as they have upscale merchandise! No junk at KP's!! Don't take my word, go in and see for yourself, I love that store!!

If you really need to clear out your closet quick this is probably the way to go but if you have the time, try and sell on Ebay. You will most likely make more money on your item.

I had been both shopping and consigning at Kindred Spirits since it opened its doors. Without going into the negative details, I will just say that I too experienced much of the same frustrations may of you have written about, BUT it is now under new fantastic ownership and I encourage everyone who has not had a positive experience in the past to please give the "new" store a try. In my opinion it is well worth it. The merchandise is forever changing, so don't miss out! The store now has variety and you can see that the same items are not there week after week. Just as the new sign advertises "New Owner, New Ideas" I again encourage you to stop back in! You will be pleasantly surprised!

I was surprised how over crowded the shop is so soon after the new owner took over. I'm sure the Good Will stores are less over packed with clothing! I find it too time consuming to look through such populous racks! It seems the clothing is more wrinkled because of it!

What a joy it is to know that you are going to always come out excited about something you bought. The store is a creative joy to the eye. You could stay in there for hours due to the great things and great help. The owner is so nice and enthusiastic and genuine and attentive. She always encourages you to finish your shopping even if the hour to close has long gone by. I have never seen anything subpar or worn or damaged in the store. The prices are great and it is just fun fun fun. I love taking my 16 year old daughter when she has a special dance or date to attend. I can outfit her from head to ears, to fingers, to wrists to tootsies...with a handbag to boot. ...for such an affordable amount. The last time I was in I fell in love with a dining room table and bought it on the spot. Of course that meant I had a set to get rid of at thome and also had to find a way to transport it. Never fear...Marriane is here...or there...she has a great couple that move furniture and it just so happened that she thought my old set would be just right in her store. Updating and redecorating was never so easy. And she has such great taste! I would rather shop there than anywhere else in the city! Deffinately go check it out. And btw I for one am glad the store had high standards as far as taking in consignments. If I wanted dirt cheap there is always goodwill...that is smelly and so forth. No, this place is a rare gem and I say keep screening those clothes! NO SMELLY CLOTHES>>

Cons: none except maybe not open enough

I can relate to what happened to the earlier poster regarding the dresses she took to Kindred Spirits. I too had a bad experience there and ended up taking out all of my merchandise last summer. I was driving thru Wexford last month and noticed their sign up stating NEW OWNER NEW IDEAS...I decided to give it a try again and it was SO WORTH IT. The new owner and her staff are so nice. The store seems much bigger and easier to navigate because they don't carry children's things anymore and at first I was disappointed b/c I really did sell a good bit of kids things in the past but the flow of the store and merchandise seems better. Feels very much like an upscale boutique - not cluttered like the previous owner had it. The BEST part is their new payment policy - no more waiting days for a check to written - automatically written monthly! Loved this. And maybe the BEST change I noticed is they inventory EVERYTHING - so you know what you dropped off and you know what you sold. Just a super shopping/selling experience! Love the new store!

If you're thinking about taking items to Kindred Spirits to sell, you had better think twice. I took three clothing items there to put on consignment and was told that I had to have everything professionally dry cleaned first. Since the items were gowns, it cost me $30 per gown for the dry cleaning. I left them at the store and was told to "check back" with them periodically. They don't call you when they sell your items--and oh, by the way, no one answers the phone--so you have to keep "checking back." I went back in 2 months and was told that one of the gowns sold for $120 and they owed me $60; however, I would have to come back in a month to get my check (?). I marked the date on my calendar and went back in on the date they specified; the clerk said there was no check there. I went in for the next 3 days, the clerk was extremely rude, and on the 3rd day she said that she hadn' t heard from or seen the owner for three weeks. She gave me the owner's e-mail and I sent her a message. She gave me some story about troubles with the bank and said she would put the check in the mail that very day. It took an additional week for me to finally receive the check. They certainly did not honor their 1-pg. "Consignment Contract" says that "pay outs on accounts can be guaranteed on Tues/Wed/Thurs." This is totally not worth the hassle. They are not people friendly, and you are made to feel like a culprit whenever you are bringing items to THEIR store to sell. I went in a hole on this whole deal on top of all of the hassle and wasted time (and gasoline!) going back and forth to their store. I would highly suggest that you look for another option!

Kindred spirits is a consignment store/gift shop/antique store, all rolled into one. It has a boutique atomsphere, complete with soothing music and a light potpourri scent. They carry clothing, housewares, you name it. Prices are quite good, and the selection is huge. I was shopping specifically for clothing and found that they carry mostly better brands, at very good prices. Good sales too!
