My mother and I visited Polka Dots for the first time this past Saturday and I absolutely loved the shop! It was very tidy and very well organized, and the two women employees were very sweet. The items were in great condition with absolutely no stains or holes. But most of all, the pricing is affordable for anyone! I went in expecting to spend a lot, but I only spent $55 and got my little girl TONS of stuff including a cute pink bath tub, 2 brand new pair of shoes, and so so much more! I would give the shop 5 out 5 stars and I would definitely recommend the shop to anyone! My mother and I look forward to going back to the shop very soon!

I love thrift store shopping, but have been highly disappointed to find that out of my last two trips to polka dots, I have been cheated out of money. The first time it was only a couple of bucks and not worth the time and trip back, and I assumed it was an honest mistake. This time it was ten dollars, and I haven't had time to check it until 9 at night, and am extremely upset. This is the second time in two trips. Kinda makes me think it is not such an honest mistake.

Buyer beware! Although this a great shop to buy thrift clothes, I too was overcharged in the same way the review from Beth stated. If you choose to shop here, carefully check your total. They do not itemize your purchases so you can see how much was charged for each one. You just get a total.

I am sorry if there was an error on your receipt, We have been through several employees the past few months, If there was an error, there is no way it was intentional. We have a very successful business based on honesty and taking in peoples merchandise for them and selling it. I would be more than willing to make things correct for you if you just called. I do whatever it takes to please my customers and consignors and I do people right and that shows through the success of my company, so I hate to see someone disappointed and I would like to apologize but I can promise you that if there was indeed an error , it was only a mistake and maybe a discount was not taken right or a coupon. I am always willing to make things right though. I sure hope you will come visit us again and let us make it up to you !

I love Polka Dots! I've never had a problem with them. Best consignment store I have been to. Although it does seem that prices are a little higher than when they first opened but still great deals.:)

I love shopping and consigning at Polka Dots. The girls are always so helpful and you are always greeted with a smile. I have made over 400.00 in just 3 months.
They keep the store so organized and I find the cutest outfits for my kids at GREAT prices.
I am so thankful to have polka dots in our community. The BEST thing, that I LOVE it, they givve you $ back for spending $, I love my rewards cards. Kinda addicting... Rate 10 out of 10 ! My favorite consignment shop.

POLKADOTS IS AWESOME. They have the nicest consignment shop I have ever been in. It is organized beautifully. Their clothes are like new and their prices are amazing. Even without a sale going on; they have great affordable prices. Thanks polkadots!!!

My mother left quite a bit of high end clothes at polka dots. With the agreement that they would sell the clothes ands mail money if any. Then asked what would happen if they didn't sell. They told my mother that they would contact her to come pick them up. After 6 months,my mom stoppped by to check on status. No one could tell her anything,and they were very rude and short tempered with my mom. My mother is not a confrontational person. So she immediately left. Later in the week my mother was in luckys supermarket and saw a friend,who had on a identical item. My mother commented, how nice a dress. I used to own one like it. Her friend said isn't it pretty. I bought it at polka dots. Mom did not tell her it used to be hers. And,its possible it was another,not my moms. But I doubt it. They are crooks.

I agree with spookdog. We are in the same boat. Havnt seen my items or check. I don't think the owner is aware that her employees may ripping her & her consigners off. The mother & daughter that work there seem very shady & rude. I will never consign here, shop, or recommend this place. I have better luck with the seasonal kids market sales.

What an awesome shop. I've been consigning here since October 2013 and have made almost 900.00 already . That's At a 50:50 rate they have.
My first check was 263.00! So much better than the yard sale I was going to have because I think I made a bunch more $ than a yard sale and I had to do nothing but bring it to them .
I was told when I signed up ( and also read my contract ) that they have to many consignors to call so I was to keep track of my 3 months with a calendar or phone reminder if I wanted to get back anything . I just choose to donate because I cleaned and don't want anything back . I just go up there once a month and they are always happy to check to see if I have tickets and write me a check . I love me some polka dots ! I drive from south Huntsville to consign and shop with polka dots ! Keep up the good work .

Just left Polka Dots in Hazel Green
I was so pleased with how organized this store is . It is easy to find what you need , all sizes and colors . The girl Darlene in there was very helpful finding my baby cute cute clothes and it all looked new . I got Lots of merchandise for my money and I will sure be back. Great great thrift store.

I had a horrific experience not only had a costumer but as a cosigner as well. I truley do not know how this woman is still in business. Aside from the deeply depressing attitude I an invited with my consignment was lost/stolen after being lied to for over Month . The workers there kept telling me my things were with someone being tagged after 35 days past no sign oh my things on there floor I was told they were missed placed and this was not the first time things oh this nature has happened I have had many friends of mine tell me the same even some employees the owner has had. This lady is as crooked had they come. She genuinely tries to put her sorrows out on her customers as if this store if her livelyhood when in fact she if never even at her store it took me almost a month 1/2 in march to get a consignment check because every time I called or went in her employees said she was out if pocket they were not allowed to pay out but she sure did train them well to take in most times I was screwed over by being over chargedso check your receipt!
Would never recommend this place to anyone

It is a fact that the majority of these positive comments on here are in fact the owner herself that is from the words of her employer herself!

never will consign here again! what a joke this consignment shop is from the lady above you wonder how she is still in business? she steals from her consignors! some of my kids summer clothes from last year were out this yr. I noticed they did not have my number on the ticket so I asked the young lady what it meant, she informed me the tickets with no number on them meant that the store owned them. hummm, this had me curious so I randomly checked throughout the store for no num. tickets
you would be surprised!
shes ripping people off big time & all the while thinks her fine print in her contract will get her out of hot water. well, I have a recording of her stating to my niece that after 3 months they will call her to pick up any unsold merchandise.
