Summer's Porch Upscale Furniture Resale at 620 E. 5th Ave. Mount Dora, Florida opened with a real bad bang on Tues. 19th of August. I was the first person to sign the guest list and make a purchase but ended very very badly. I purchased a day bed she was to hold till next day I had ask could there be a discount and she said she would call owner and get back to me the next day. I never heard from them so called towards closing and the owner pamela Simon's informed me she sold the bed. She had put a hold ticket on it till we found out if discount or not so I could pay what the selling price would be. I aske Pamela what did she want to do about holding the bed from sale she said I will hold for you and will not sell out from under you till I call you. Well what kind of bussiness practice is that? I was highly upset and she asked what did i want her to do I want the bed give the other lady her money back and tell her it was already sold and she made a mistake. She said she couldn't do that well she did it to me. This is not the way to do bussiness or treat a customer. You good word, name, and reputation she mean more to you than a sale this evendently doe's not to Pamela Simon's. This is a bussiness I would avoid as if you buy something you better take it with you or it will be sold before you can come back to pick up. very bad bussiness to deal with and bad bussiness practice's.

Summer's Porch will fit right in with the gay lifestyle shoppes of Mount Dora! Their downtown motto is screw them all,the short and the tall!

I visited Summer's Porch last weekend and found it to be a delightful shop. The owner was personable, the shop was arranged attractively and the merchandise was unique. Summer's Porch does fit right in with the other upscale fun shops in Mount Dora. Mount Dora and Summer's Porch are both cute, cute, cute places. Love them!

I am a designer from ny. When I found summer porch I thought I was in shoppers heaven. We were setting up a condo and found great prices and great items. My suggestion, if you find something you like, buy it. It won't be there next time. Too bad about the daybed honey but she who hesitates looses. Not shop owners fault. In my opinion. It's a tuff retail world and if you don't believe me ask any shop owner.

I guess I was wrong to take someone's word they would hold it till next day I just thought if you gave your word it meant something. I guess not these day's.

I'm sorry that lady had a problem but we loved the shop and the owners.
Everything is very nice and the prices are great. We were on our way back to Melbourne and found several things almost as soon as we walked in!
Thank you!

Soooo disappointed! Pamela Simons stole the merchandise I had at the store. After buying a dining set and leaving my piece for consignment I visited the store on a regular basis. Mirror was not selling but I left it over the holidays. When I went back she had closed the store, all merchandise gone, complaints filed to BBB and Mt Dora chamber. Well I was too trusting as were many others.
