Shopping >Antiques At Pike Place
Great Antique Store.
My wife and I have been there a couple times in the last year or so , and are in appreciation there is an Antique Store to visit when we go to Pike Place Market.
I found the items a little more interesting than the"typical
Antique Store" Last time we were there we got a purse for our Daughter and great white end tables that we get complements on.
I actually felt a little bad for the girl up front when she (politely) asked for our bags. I know they do it BC the store gets pretty crowded and no matter how insulted you get by someone asking for your bag, My daughter has worked in a similar place and it just takes that one in a few hundred people that like to drop things in there bag and I have seen people knock stuff over with there Back pack, so try to picture the girl asking for your bag is your daughter and its part of her job and be understanding.
Any way parking is kind of a a pain, but thats the city of Seattles thing.
And some of the prices are a little high and I overheard they usually are firm w/ prices.
Still ,its cool its there at all. Seems like places like this are going away and being replaced by Starbucks and the like. So while we were tempted to give it 4stars BC of a few of the too high priced items, we're givig it 5
Pride Ourselves in Customer Service. We are shocked to see the details in the review of June 12, 2008 - we have historically prided ourselves in our firendly service and desire to please our customers. As the owner of Antiques at Pike Place, I write this response after many hours of internal review and staff communication regarding customer service and it's importance. It is absolutely our goal to cater to repeat customers - this is a big part of our business, and we have repeat customers locally and around the U.S. and the world who fly in to shop at our store each year. Thanks for the feedback, and being specific on the date... it's this kind of feedback that will ensure we do not lose focus on our customers.
RUDE and Inconsiderate. Living locally, I've been in the shop before and have even made purchases. However, last Saturday I had a terrible experience and will never go back. I was ignored while waiting for service (for 10 minutes, in the same spot, while others who came in after me were asked "oh, can I help you find anything?") And then when I went out of my way to ask a salesperson about a mirror with no price tag, the answer was "well, if you can get it down without damaging it, they'll check the price for you." At that point, I said "I'll skip it then." On my way out I did mention that the service was well below par and the response was NOT "I'm sorry" or even "what happened?" it was "we're busy." Ironically, there was nobody in line, and two staff members standing up by the register, chatting. If there were a rating LOWER than 1 star, I would give it. I am completely disgusted and would warn everybody not to bother with this place. They don't count on repeat business, and so treat customers poorly.
Just gets better with age. I have been to this place a million times. It's always been a favorite place for me to shop, but over the past year it has taken on a whole new look. The antiques are fresh, the sales people are friendly and the shop itself has taken on a whole new presentation that is elegant and inviting. The front window reflects the store - choc full of really neat stuff. I can't imagine anyone walking in and not finding something they like. It's not only a fantastic place to visit , it's a fantastic place to frequent.
Must Visit. This place is a ?must visit? when you are in the downtown area. Their card says ?The Biggest Little Mall in Town? and I have to say it truly is the coolest not-so-little shop in the down town area! The prices are reasonable and the selection is terrific, even eclectic, in places. The atmosphere is pleasant and quietly festive, and the staff certainly know their business. With ample parking nearby, this is where I start and end my shopping downtown. I finished my Christmas shopping, and it was all from this store!
Editorial Review. Antique estate jewelry and vintage merchandise collections from more than 150 Northwest dealers near Pike Place Market.
Finally, a store for all tastes. A really nice little shop. The themes change quite often - the "Guy Case" is brilliant. The store is accessible and close to the market, so you can make a day of shopping and visiting Pike Place Market. It's a browsers paradise, but you'll always walk out with something you can't live without.
Antiques at its finest. This place has an unbelievable variety of modern, victorian and art deco. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the shop is well presented and clean. The entrance display window alone is worth the visit! As you walk in you see cases of high-quality jewelry reasonably priced. The entrance is deceiving as the shop looks somewhat small upon entry, but as you walk beyond the jewelry cases at the front you see a large floor with everything from furniture to small collectibles to early American quilts to that eclectic one-of-a-kind. You could get lost for hours in this place every week, and still find something new each time.
