I've been a customer of Dana Scott (owner) ever since she opened her shop. I've purchased numerous items from her shop, and have done some consignments of items I've brought from Chicago which don't fit my current décor. Dana had handled all of my transactions in a very professional manner, and have priced them accordingly. She is also very knowledgeable of the value of the items I have brought in for consignment, and I couldn't be happier that she was able to sell them at a decent price. She had always kept me up to date on the status of my items, and when they sold, payment to me was always done in a timely manner. Dana has excellent marketing skills, and if you have decent items to sell, Dana makes every effort to move it out of her store. Keep in mind that if you bring in something which is not in good condition, or it's something like rattan, she will not take it. Such items would only clutter up her store, add to her storage fees, and these items would probably never sell.
I've relocated from Chicago, and at first I was hesitant with dealing with consignments here in Florida. I've visited a few, however, I was never impressed with the owners of these establishments. They were very pushy, not knowledgeable, and were only interested in signing a contract right away, and then sending out a truck to pick up your items.
When I met Dana for the first time I found that she is knowledgeable regarding values, and she is very professional. If she doesn't know a fair price of an item, she will research it, and then we would mutually agree on a selling price. She is extremely honest, and goes beyond what is required of a consignment dealer. She is also so pleasant to deal with, and is always cordial no matter who enters her store.
I always highly recommend Peacocks Design and Consign to all of my friends, and they are forever thankful. Dana has a keen eye for what the customer is looking for, and she has helped them furnish their newly purchased homes and condos.
Whenever I'm in the area, I always visit Dana's store. It's always nice to look through her newly acquired items, and come up with that unexpected treasure. Everything is priced reasonably, and well................... Dana is a real sweetheart! If you plan on visiting her store, you will not be disappointed. Give her a try, as you will be pleasantly surprised!
