The Red Geranium
Although it can be tough to sum up a consignment store's eclectic stock in only a few words, Judy Schordock, owner of The Red Geranium, feels she's up to the challenge. "If it's unusual, collectible, whimsical, valuable, or exceptional, we've got it," her website says. She particularly specializes in home furnishings and clothing, ranging from classic china sets to vintage costumes. She also stocks her shelves with fine, handmade goods alongside designer labels.
Judy maintains a highly curated, constantly revolving collection by only accepting consignments on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. She also allows unsold items to remain on her shelves for no longer than eight weeks before she donates them to charities that serve the needy. If items are sold within the eight-week span, Judy rewards their original owners with a slice of the profit.
