Angela Wozniak opened her store fifteen years ago for a simple reason "I had to support my habit, which is collecting cool stuff." Now she has one of the largest collections of "cool stuff" under one roof. It's called "The Gently Used Home Store".
Angela's daughter Gina has been part of the business, almost from the start and she says "we buy, sell and consign a little bit of everything." Buyers, sellers and browsers are all welcome. Angela says her favorite pieces are "shabby chic" and gives an example "It's like a dresser with old chipped paint."
Merchandise is always coming in and going out, which means that Gina and Angela's collection is constantly changing. The Mother and Daughter are on the same page with what they like but sometimes have to negotiate prices, according to Angela "there's a lot of negotiation that goes on, we call it bikering." and Gina adds "if you hear yelling, it's out of love."
The Gently Used Home Store is located 5999 South Park Ave., Hamburg, NY and you can get more information at their website.
