If you live in Downtown Nashville, you’ve probably never considered the Maple Row Shopping Center in Hendersonville as one of your top shopping destinations, but it’s one of my “sure-stops” whenever I’m out that way.
I call it Consignment Central because rarely will you find as many consignment shops within a stone’s throw of each other — five in the center itself and one just a half block over.
There’s a children’s consignment shop, a plus-size women’s consignment shop, a home furnishings and furniture consignment shop, a men’s big and tall consignment shop and two ladies clothing consignment shops, one of which has a consignment wedding and formalwear boutique within the shop.
Yes, a lot of serious shopping — and recycling in the best sense of the word — goes on on this busy Hendersonville corner, which is also home to Kmart and Dollar General.
Here’s the consignment rundown:
Mariella’s is the newest kid on this consignment block, having opened in November on the Indian Lake Road side of the center. Owner Mariella Landers prides herself on having items at various price points and on having known labels as her mainstay. She has a trendy junior area and lots of handbags, hats and accessories. The split is 50/50 between consignor and store. Open Tuesday-Saturday.
Up & Down Closet, next to Kmart on the Gallatin Road side. This is a plus-size specialty consignment shop featuring sizes 14 to 28 and up to 6X with brands like Coldwater Creek, Talbots and Lane Bryant. Operated by Sherry Lawler and Jackie Biggers, the shop is full of shoes and clothes, including mother-of-the-bride and cruise wear as well as business and casual, plus lots of jewelry and accessories. Don’t miss the clearance racks. The split is 50/50. Open 7 days a week.
The Mens Room, next door to the Up & Down Closet (the stores share an entrance), specializes in men’s clothing in sizes large to as big as 10X. The shop also offers shoes, ties and other accessories for the “above average” man, and the split is 50/50. Open Tuesday-Sunday.
Then & Again, also on the Indian Lake Road side, is a 2-year-old home furnishings consignment shop. Owner Julia Proctor describes her store as “purveyors of antique, vintage and consignment furniture and home decor and accessories.” It’s a small shop but is full of interesting pieces and original artwork and has every price range. The shop is open Thursday through Saturday. The split is 60 percent to the consignor and 40 percent to the store.
Little Ones ’n Reruns children’s boutique consignment shop has been in business for 10 years. Owner Sue Layne carries girls and boys clothes from newborn to size 16, plus baby equipment and gift items, including some new accessories such as bags and bows. Don’t miss the $1 rack in the back. The split is 50/50.
Second Time Around, 121 Indian Lake Road. This shop has been around for almost 28 years, first in the Maple Row Center and now just a half block away in a small retail center on Indian Lake. Owner Peggy Armstrong has about 500 active consignors and a 50-50 split. In addition to name-brand casual and ladies’ business clothing, she has a wonderful consignment bridal gown boutique — at any given time there are at least 200 dresses with none costing more than $400 — and a huge assortment of prom dresses, pageant dresses and other formalwear. She also has shoes, accessories and new jewelry.
