One of the best antique "malls" in the area. Lots of neat treasures to browse and explore. We always enjoy a walk through here - and today was no exception!
There's a lot of stuff in this place. I'm not so sure all of it could be considered antiques but there's certainly quite a variety. To really do this place justice you should have at least 2 or 3 hour... read more »
Vorab: ich shoppe gerne und besuche sehr gerne kleine Museen und Flohmärkte. Darum war der Besuch im Sugar Crest Antique Mall für mich ein Volltreffer. Die Bezeichnung "Mall" ist ein wenig irreführend... read more »Caveat: I playing like and visit very much like small museums and flea markets. Therefore, the visit to the sugar Crest Antique Mall for me was a direct hit. The term "Mall" is a little misleading, because it is a large hall in many differently sized compartments, (similar to an Office) is divided. These compartments/booths be equipped by various dealers. The staff apparently belongs to the Mall, but very well known with different traders and goods and was very friendly and attentive. Some stalls were so crowded that we us not dare to look in more detail, other displays were well structured and carefully decorated. Everything was there of the watercolor of Barbie dolls, coke machines, crockery, furniture, jewelry, etc.. Also in the pricing we found all of the extremely expensive junk to Super bargains. The time passed very quickly, and without realizing it spent three hours at Sugar Crest. It was certainly not our last visit...show original
The Sugar Chest is one of what appears to be a dying breed. 10 years s ago the giant antique mall was ubiquitous, now they seem to be going the way of the dodo. Sugar Chest has lots and lots of glass and other collectables. The are a lot small trinkets and other random items. If there's a downside I'd say it's cramped, so moving through the smaller booths is a little bit of a challenge. Overall I'd most definitely return, when I have more time to dig and explore.
This place has a wide range of items and nice staff..but in the back left corner of the shop there is one seller who had a "antique" chinese jewelry chest for $500..I bought the exact same jewelry chest at Pier One for around $30. I cant understand why they have it marked so high but that is just terrible, dont fall for that price if you go in. I am just wondering how many others are like that.
The Sugar Chest Antique Mall is quite impressive....I was blown away by how big the place is....and the high quality, wide range, and affordably priced items. I found a ton of discoveries....this is totally the place you hear about that has amazing treasures. I also love that they have cool funky mid-century modern stuff.....very stylish. Every time I go there I find something new that I must have....and its great because they always have fresh inventory. The key is though to keep popping in because they always have new stuff arriving. I am also very impressed with the wide assortment of fine jewelry and artwork for sale. Its like an art gallery in there and the jewelry is gorgeous!
Wide variety of antiques and collectibles. This is a mall with little booth sections that belong to individual sellers. Mall staff sell the wares for the individual booths. A few booths have reproductions, but most look genuinely antique. Prices are high. I haven't been able to afford anything here yet.
This is a long review but worth the read as it describes behavior that would be best to avoid as either a dealer or client. The Sugar Chest Antique Mall (SCAM) simply cannot be trusted to do what is right. As a former dealer at the SCAM, I feel it is important for others to know that they have been underhanded and unethical in their dealings with me professionally. I began my business relationship with SCAM in 2012. They were recommended to me by another of their dealers as a viable outlet for high end antique jewelry that I sell. Roughly 18 months in, they lost their jewelry department manager. Her successive replacements were competent but only lasted a year or so. Both were terminated. They brought in progressively less capable staff to fill the role(s) she held. As the newer staff floundered, sales became sporadic. At this time, there was little to no communication coming from the owner as to changes being made in the jewelry department. There seemed to be no leadership at all. The department was remodeled and the hope was that it would be reinvigorated after the investment. Nothing could have been farther from the truth. The staffing of the jewelry department waned and was left under the leadership of a most incapable person. The owner was conspicuously and characteristically unavailable to my contact for concerns. In June 2015, I was contacted by the very same dealer who had recommended the SCAM. I was told that there were problems. I was made aware that there wasn't even anyone staffing the jewelry department; a recipe for disaster. I immediately made plans to retrieve my goods (a cross-country flight away) and did so at the end of June 2015 at great personal expense. While I was there, I terminated my contract in writing. Since they had made a few nominal sales for me in June, I waited for my settlement check to arrive in the mail. Based on the terms of the contract, I was due to pay 60 days rent which I expected to have deducted from my proceeds. When I got my settlement check, they erroneously withheld a full 6 months of rent! They claimed I breached the contract which was inaccurate. In addition the "payment" was in the form of an un-endorsed check! I made written objection immediately. The business manager (the owners' son) maintained that they were in the right. However, when demand was made for written proof that their contract would uphold their position, they never provided any proof. They re-sent the original check, this time they spelled my name incorrectly, and I had been dealing with them and receiving correctly made out checks for over 2 years. It all seemed like stall tactics and I began to wonder if they were in financial distress. At the very least they should have wished to sever the relationship as quickly and cleanly as I did. They managed to prolong the process by weeks. In the end, I grew tired of going back and forth and I negotiated for a nominal reduction in the rent they were withholding. I believed it was better to be done with them and I think that all should beware before entering into ANY business dealing with such people. I found the Sugar Chest Antique Mall to be deceitful, passive aggressive and ultimately unethical. Based on my experience with them over the course of time, I highly recommend avoiding ANY business dealings with them. Ginger Cleland Antique Jewelry Dealer Owner, Designs In Gold
