Many newcomers to the Outer Banks who are browsing the local restaurants, shops and area attractions online or in the local guide books notice an interesting addition to the standard address. Besides the typical business name, street name, street number and town, many local businesses also include a Milepost number. This may initially appear to be an odd notation to include, but on the Outer Banks, this is incredibly helpful to new visitors on the lookout for a specific restaurant or shop.
High quality furniture and home décor that has been “gently used” is sold at this shop that opened in 2012 in the art district at Gallery Row. Much of this second generation merchandise is from foreclosures, relocations or from interior designer upgrades, so everything is in excellent condition. It’s clear when you walk in that the store is not offering your standard thrift store fare. OBXConsign! carries sought-after brands like Broyhill, Stanley, Henry Link, Lexington, Lee Industries and American Drew at discount prices. Nearly every inch of every room is filled with fine tables, over-stuffed chairs, lamps, sofas, dining chairs, and outdoor wicker furniture. There is also a selection of local art, some Sally Huss products, and gift cards and prints. Consignments are accepted with a 90-day contract. When it’s sold, 60 percent goes to the seller, and 40 percent to the store.
