I was a little harsh in my last review, so yes I will recommend Paddiwhack again. I had placed a special order and it took longer then expected. The owner explained that with the slowdown in the economy that vendors and artist were trying to group shipments for the savings in shipping, he went ahead and had the artist expedite the remainder of the items I was waiting on at no charge to me. I have always enjoyed shopping at Paddiwhack with the unusual finds you come across. Now I know that handmade can not always be rushed... but it was worth the wait

I usually go in to get my wedding gifts at Paddiwhack. The last couple of times they were low on one of my favorite wedding gift items that I have given in the past, so I would leave disappointed.

The other day when I went in I mentioned to the lady working that they were out of Mezuzahs. Not only did she bring out a larger selection from the back, she was willing to order the one I always like to purchase for a new couple. Three days later they called to let me know it had arrived. I had expected it to take a couple of weeks. If you can't find what your looking for I suggest you ask... their inventory is amazing and the staff has always been helpful.

Just received my order of a custom bookcase from Paddiwhack I had ordered it in January and it arrived last week.
As the order progressed through the system I was called each week and kept updated as to the status. Yes It did take a week longer then I was origionally told, but it was well worth the wait. When it arrived the owner delivered it and put it in place, he went the extra step and moved the old bookcase out to the garage for us.
Thank you for the wonderful service.

Last September I placed an order for a custom lazy susan from Sticks, as a wedding gift. I paid 250.00 as a deposit. I was told we would have it in 2 months. Well in December I was told it shipped and was delivered to the wrong business?/! Then by March when it still had not arrived I was told the same story, again! No matter how many I times I called about any of this my calls were NEVER returned and always required me going into the store. I have since contacted Sticks and they have confirmed that the order was NEVER placed and that Paddiwhack is no longer one of their merchants. They will not take any orders from them since they owe them so much money! This is quite a scam, taking money from people for deposits and using it for 7 months! I did get my money back. I had used American Express and the owner knew they (AX) would help me if he did not do the right thing. These are dishonest people. BEWARE!!!!! I have now ordered the item directly from the corporate offices at Sticks with no problem. If you go on the web site for Sticks Furniture you will see that Paddiwhack is not listed as one of their stores. The merchandise Paddiwhack has in the store is old inventory.

My Wife and I shop at Paddiwhack on a regular bases, we have always found the service and selection to be excellent. when we need a small gift or a new side table our fist stop is Paddiwhack. You will find the unique items at Paddiwhack, mostly handmade and they are very affordable. We always buy our wedding gifts at the shop and usually have them mailed by the shop, what a convince.

In March 2007 my daughter and her husband ordered a Stick custom dining table from Paddiwhack. The table has never been delivered. The owner avoids their phone calls. Last month he claimed the table was shipped, but it never arrived. Upon contacting the Sticks company directly, it was discovered the table was never ordered! The owner ofPaddiwhacks will not return their calls. Upon contacting the sister store, High Springs Gallery, My daughter was told that the owner would issue an immediate refund. That has not happened either. Consumers need to be aware of this business!

This is a nice locally owned store with all kinds of different art, furniture and kinck knacks. It's a lot of whimsical stuff. My wife enjoys window shopping here. The prices are a little high. They offer what they consider "hard to find" pieces. My wife and I took a trip down to Tampa and found a small chain art gallery that carried the same pieces for about half the price. So they were not that hard to find and certainly not worth the money that Paddiwhack wanted. That being said they do have a lot of things to look at and it is a good place to find a "special" gift. The store reciently changed hands and I see less selection and higher prices.
