Local Resale Review

Treasure Hunt – Mount Prospect, IL

Treasure Hunt

Treasure Hunt Schaumburg – Fine Resale Furniture

Treasure Hunt has moved to a new and smaller location.  It’s still the same high quality furniture but on a smaller scale.  The management tells me that although they have a smaller showroom now, they have a nearby warehouse loaded with stuff just waiting to be moved into the showroom.  

Wow, this place is a resale furniture shopper’s paradise. When you first walk in you immediately get the sense that this place is gonna be a different experience than just about any other resale store you’ve been in. Gorgeous used furniture instantly catch your eye. I notice what appears to be a chesterfield sofa in burgundy leather. On further inspection I see that it’s manufactured by Baker Furniture, and is in remarkable condition. These are as rare as rattlesnake nipples. I settle myself down into the sofa and can instantly sense the quality of the materials by the shear comfort of this wonderful piece. This store has without a doubt, the nicest used furniture that I’ve ever seen. As I move further in to the massive showroom I begin to notice more and more amazing furniture. I can’t imagine where the buyer gets all of this merchandise. They have a blog of their own on the website where the buyer discusses briefly where some of his finds are coming in from. This blog even gives the reader a bit of an advantage in as much as you get to hear about what’s coming in on the trucks days before it reaches the showroom.

All I can say about Treasure Hunt is to give it a look. It’s nearly 3,000 sq. ft. of resale furniture bliss. The place is located in Mount Prospect at 2300 Elmhurst Rd., Mount Prospect, IL 60056.  It’s on the northwest corner of Oakton and Elmhurst roads in the Colony Square strip mall.

Give them a call, the salespeople are very friendly and helpful.

If you go there once, you’re gonna go back.


Plato’s Closet – Schaumburg, IL and other Locations

Plato’s Closet is a resale store for adolescent and young adult clothing.  I know, we’re supposed to review furniture resale, but what can I say, I like this place.  It’s a wonderful environment for shopping in. The associates or salespeople are very nice and super helpful. The store is very well laid out as far as clothes being categorized by size, style and clothing type. I’ve been in a couple of the Chicagoland stores and they’re all run the same. They’re very clean and well organized. The clothes for sale on the racks are remarkably well cared for, often times I notice the items may still have the original tags on the from the store they were purchased at new, indicating that the piece had never even been worn. The prices are fantastic, with every piece being a better value than the last. The clothes for sale on the racks at Plato’s Closet are almost always current styles or trends. I really don’t know how they do it. Having a few daughters ourselves, you could imagine our need to save a buck when we can, but heaven help us if the girls don’t have current trends or designer threads. Plato’s Closet has always been a perfect fit.

As far as Plato’s Closet buying your kids used clothes, their standards are pretty high. You’ll walk in with a bundle of clothes and typically walk out with some money but still have some of your clothes as they’d been rejected. Happens all the time, and I’m glad it does. That’s how they keep such fine merchandise on their shelves.

They’ve got locations all over the Chicagoland area and nation wide for that matter. Plato’s CLoset is easy to fine and well worth the effort.

Sadly, this store is closed.  Seems so many resale stores are closing due to the difficult economy.
