About Us & Purchase Guide

“Shop locally, help out your own community, come on in and check us out.”

Gallery 1700, a family owned and operated business, opened in October 2009. We have sidewalk sales & other events in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Vendors also have special sales on items in their booths throughout the year!

Please note: We have many rare items. If you see something when you like, you better buy it. Items come and go quickly. That special treasure might not be there the next time you visit!

What we do:
We evaluate your items, when we figure out what we will purchase and for what dollar amount we will call you to come in. The only information we give you over the phone is to tell you that the evaluation has been made. It may take up to one week.

Consignment:
You may also put an item with a value of $50.00 or more on consignment. When items are approved for display in our Gallery we will place them for sale. You pay nothing for their display. When sold the Gallery will take 40%, you receive 60%. The contract is for 6 months. At that time you may pick up your item or we will reduce the price which may help it sell.
