Overview
More
Barbara's has been around for 29 years now. We may have outgrown the name Bazaar as we offer fine art, high end mid century furniture, the best of kitchen accessories, decorations with class and a selection of Oriental rugs unmatched in the area. Along with all this fine stuff we offer Tupperware, old stainless pots with copper bottoms ( a big seller), old records and down right 'junk' that someone always falls in love with, a small selection of better vintage and name label clothing and accessories. We also carry a variety of architectural objects, like antique doors, iron window guards, stone detailing off old buildings, bronze garden art. You name it we have it or have had it or will have it!

This is a great consignment store with something for everyone. They also conduct estate/garage sales and are very professional and well organized. We would definitely use their services again.More

A great bazaar that his an extensive collection of items ranging from cheap to VERY expensive. I have bought several items, including a mink coat and a tennis racquet which I use almost daily. Easy to purchase, since they use Paypal.
