Over 4,000 Square Feet Of Unique & Quality Items Always At Heirloom Consignment In South Portland

One year ago April, Michelle Raymond opened Heirloom Consignment located on 161 Ocean Street in South Portland. People continue to be very receptive and encouraging, says Michelle. “Items come in and go out at about the same pace which makes an exciting shopping experience for our frequent guests”. “Treasures keep on coming in, items of every style and description, dishes to daybeds, artwork to accessories and everything in between”. Today, Michelle’s store has expanded to include two new retail alcoves and a warehouse/ prep area. “We’ve been so busy. “It’s been very successful not only for the store but for the customer who is coming here to shop! Part of the draw is Michelle’s eye for design. An interior decorator with more than 30 years experience, Michelle is able to pick out items that impress, and display them for maximum effect. “People have very beautiful things. They don’t even know how beautiful their things are,” she says. “It’s just a matter of being able to see it. That’s where my background comes in. An item can be anything, from any decade up to new, it just has to be something that people would want to have in their homes.” We do turn away some offers, “It’s all about what sells and what buyers currently want in their homes. Things change quickly,” says Michelle, who is always trying to stay on top of trends, with her finger on the pulse of what people are going to be asking for. “Heirloom Consignment is open from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and until 4 p.m. on Sunday. Anyone interested in consigning a larger item, including furniture, can send photos to Raymond by emailing michellea@HeirloomConsignmentsME.com
